We have already said it before, and will say it again: From a technical point of view, the traditional minute repeater watches are not only impressive, but their voices are often impressive when they are personally operated and experienced. This is the result of thick cases made of precious metals such as gold and platinum, as well as the ancient layout and function of this historic mechanism. The manufacturer, called Le Brassus, is committed to joining the extremely close high-end watch brand in the 2015 concept work “Audemars Piguet Replica Royal Oak Concept Acoustics Research Episode 1″, which has begun to improve the acoustic performance of this thinking. – Incredibly complex, but obsolete in some respects.
The case design is familiar to experienced watch enthusiasts: it is the Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica Watches Royal Oak concept car with its unique angular lug structure. According to the usual practice, it is this case with the experimental caliber of the brand, which has entered the unknown field of the advanced watchmaking field. Ask any watchmakers the complex features they think are the most difficult to make, and they may mention a complex function (three-question or loud) or a minute-by-second chronograph.
The triple repeater has been very difficult to conceive and assemble. It is a very complicated mechanism with an incredibly difficult function: mechanical readout time, which can be activated at any time, “on demand”. Nonetheless, the AP, or vice versa, is notoriously called Audemars Piguet Replica Watches Renaud & Papi (we have recently visited) and has begun to redesign it, which, according to them, will greatly improve the acoustic quality of this mechanism. Their acoustic research laboratory worked with the Lausanne Lausanne Federal Institute of Technology (Lausanne Federal Institute of Technology) to develop and implement this new design for more than three years. Ok, so it’s hard to make, we got it, but what did it actually do?
As a former SIHH trailer, AP is not very open to the details of this new design, but it is clear that it is inspired by the production of stringed instruments – so much so that they collaborate with “a respected scholar” at the Geneva Conservatory of Music Perceive the theme of the sound to make the bells as audible and clear as possible. In addition, they also studied the seals of the case to ensure water resistance, thereby minimizing its sound insulation – despite the Fake Audemars Piguet Watches Royal Oak Concept Acoustics Study Episode 1 is still waterproof only 20 meters, which means it should be away from any amount of water that exceeds the accidental spill of Evian.
It can be said that, more technically challenging, Best Audemars Piguet Replica Watches has also designed a new, almost silent strike mechanism regulator, also known as a governor. In the traditional sounding mechanism, this indispensable component – running continuously while the three-question timer is running – produces audible mechanical winding noise that usually eliminates the clear sound produced by hammers and hammers. Making it almost inaudible will definitely help these bells become more prominent, making their fine-tuning sounds more enjoyable. Last but not least, Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak Concept Acoustics Study Episode 1 will be equipped with a 44 mm wide titanium casing that can be much louder due to the relatively low gold or platinum density of the metal. . The movement is also equipped with a tourbillon and column wheel chronograph – although not only one column wheel is required in this level of fine watchmaking.
Although the brand did not mention this in the official newsletter related to the pre-2015 version of SIHH, after careful observation, we found that the tourbillon assembly of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Acoustics Study Episode 1 does not include a , but two escape wheels (one at 6 o’clock and the other at 10 o’clock in the picture above), and two fixed wheels (one gray and one slightly larger), gold ) and two balance wheels! If you look at the color of the screws that are placed around the wheel, you can separate the two balance wheels: the upper balance wheel has silver screws and the lower balance wheel has gold screws. To the best of our knowledge, this is something we have not seen in any of the other tourbillons of Audemars Piguet; in fact, in this configuration it is certain that the two balance wheels and the fixed wheels are above each other. novel.
Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak Concept Acoustics Study Episode 1 will feature a black rubber strap and a titanium bezel, which adds to the extra sportiness we expect from the brand’s concept work. More details will be released in January as we hope to see (and hear) this very promising and interesting metal project at SIHH 2015.
