The 2023 reference 16202XT.OO.1240XT.01 Replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak “Jumbo,” which has a case and bracelet that combines titanium and bulk metal glass components. Named “Jumbo” by previous standards when the watch was released, it also features a gradient-style smoked burgundy red dial and the still new in-house Audemars Piguet Caliber 7121 Extra-Thin automatic movement.
There has been a lot of industrial excitement about bulk metallic glasses because the material has different capabilities when compared to traditionally formed metal. There is no one substance that you can call “bulk metallic glass.” Rather, this is a category name for a production process that can be used to form a large number of alloys. With that said, the Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica particular bulk metallic glass alloy used for this watch is 50% palladium — which is evidenced by the “Pd500” label on the rear of the watch.
Bulk metallic glass is an exotic material that is likewise ideal for a lot of wristwatch cases and bracelet applications. That means more bulk metallic glass is coming to the watch space soon, and the price will inevitably fall. Early adopters like Audemars Piguet can charge a premium for their first watches as being first-to-market in the luxury space does come with that type of prestige.
Other than this version of the 39mm wide Audemars Piguet Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin Replica Watches being very beautiful to look at, I think the use of bulk metallic glass is the main part of its story. With that said, if you have the money and don’t really care about applied materials science, then you’ll enjoy looking at this attractive timepiece on your wrist. If you care about materials, then you’ll probably want to know why bulk metallic glass is interesting and how it could make an upcoming timepiece even better.
The main advantage of bulk metallic glass is the density of the material. The atoms in the structure are more closely packed together because they pool around one another before the metal alloy hardens. This is opposed to a crystalline structure, which is an ordered geometric form, but one that involves space between the atoms.Each of these bulk metallic glass formation processes is tricky, expensive, and often time-consuming. There are also limitations to the size that bulk metallic glass pieces can be produced.
Audemars Piguet Replica uses bulk metallic glass palladium parts for the bezel, caseback, and smaller bracelet links. The rest of the reference 16202XT.OO.1240XT.01’s case is in normally-formed titanium.The case is 39mm wide and just 8.1mm thick. It has a flat AR-coated sapphire crystal over the dial (as well as caseback) and is water-resistant to 50 meters. The fit and finishing are impressive, and as the Royal Oak has over the years, it really impresses on the wrist.
Inside this Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin watch is the Fake Audemars Piguet Watches caliber 7121 automatic movement. This movement was meant to replace an aging automatic movement platform that enthusiasts hoped Audemars Piguet would upgrade for years. The caliber 7121 is a beautiful-looking mechanism with considerable decoration and attractive architecture.
It operates at 4Hz with a power reserve of 55 hours. It does this between two mainspring barrels, which instead of acting to help increase power reserve, in this mechanism act to promote isochronism through the release of more consistent power. The caliber 7121 movement is made up of 268 parts and uses a solid gold automatic rotor offering the time and date.
Note that the seconds hand has been removed from the Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica movement in order to make the watch thinner as well as more elegant. I think for a watch this pretty you can live without a seconds indicator — though as a mechanical watch lover, I can see why it would be missed.
In addition to expecting more bulk metallic glass in the future, I also anticipate more red-colored and burgundy-colored dials to come soon. Not only from Audemars Piguet Replica with 80% Discount, but other brands. So that makes this particular smoked burgundy, bulk metallic glass palladium and titanium Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin 39mm a bit of a trendsetter.
