Join us as we explore a prized opinion by any watch buff's standards.It's not every day I get to review an iconic Audemars Piguet watches, the likes of which just 100 exist in the world. This can be as much a treat to me personally as it's for me to share with you. Let us jump right in!
A few items about this tourbillon watches allow it to be uniquely unique. Like we just mentioned, it is a limited edition with only 100 units created, so there is a fantastic likelihood that you won't ever see another individual wear one. In a world of copy-cats and unparalleled abundance, rarity and originality are becoming a thing these days.
But all vanity aside, it is made from a highly scratch-resistant black ceramic substance. Not only that, but uses the same combination of polished and brushed finishing together with the situation, bracelet and bezel as you would see on the metal and steel models which everyone has grown to love through time. So, it's still true to this first only with a few added advantages that'll help keep your watch looking newer for longer.
It was the early 1960s when watchmakers began experimenting with ceramics, Rado being the very first. However, in the last few decades, it became very mainstream, even for upper-market luxury watches brands such as AP and such.
The circumstance is 44m in diameter using a 13.20 case thickness and is sealed tight. The translucent and scratch-resistant sapphire case back is secured into the rear of the situation with an 8 round stainless-steel thread. Some exceptional engraving can be located on the back of the situation which says.
This watch is also exceptional because of its mechanical sophistication. Equipped with a tourbillon that's a horological complication or mechanical feature known to improve precision by counterbalancing the drag which gravity puts on the motion when the view is at different angles. Even if it didn't have any advantage, it's mesmerizing into the eye to observe and will fascinate anyone who sees it in action.
The tourbillon cage are discovered in the 6 o'clock position on the open-worked dial. The other is a little running minute's sub-register and is in the 9 o'clock position. The other hands excluding the small running minute's hand, meaning that the 30-minute counter hand and also black and white big central seconds hand are utilized by the chronograph because of its time function. The dial flange around the outskirts of the dial is black and has a white finely printed second's and split second's track for precise timing.
The entire skeleton dial, when looking at it in normal light, monochromatic with only a few tiny flashes of red used in the watch stones found from the tourbillon and its cage. This fits perfectly with the dark ceramic bracelet as well as both extra sporty rubber straps which are included with the opinion. One is solid black rubber while another is black rubberized with grey sides. The bracelet contains an extra single pair of black ceramic drag hyperlinks, a ceramic AP style deployant (folding) buckle. Power reserve of approximately 72 hours.
