Audemars Piguet Launches Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Black Ceramic Watch Only Special Edition 2017

I believe you must still remember the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Black Ceramic Watch. It is undoubtedly a shining star at the 2017 SIHH 2017 in Geneva. The perpetual calendar is an important complication in itself, and the application of ceramic materials in the manufacture of this watch is more of an engineering miracle and takes a lot of time, which also explains why the production of this watch is so scarce. Unsurprisingly, Audemars Piguet chose the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Black Ceramic Watch to create a special timepiece for the Only Watch 2017 (Model: 26599CE.OO.1225CE.01) with a new dial.

This is a unique Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar watch, the new dial is a big selling point

   The new dial is the most intuitive feeling when seeing this Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar watch. The ‘Grande Tapisserie’ large checkered dial is presented in a special dark blue, called ‘Skylight’, which is the brilliance of the last few minutes before sunset. This also explains why the moon phase presents a brighter orange color than the regular style, which is a tribute to the rich colors of the dying sun. The choice of blue is undoubtedly satisfactory, especially when paired with the impressive black ceramic, which is fashionable and full of personality.

Brushed satin finish on black ceramic is still so impressive
   In addition to the new dial, turning to the back, you can also see the black skeleton rotor, which is more bold and bold than most other Royal Oak watches. The Caliber 5134 self-winding movement equipped with this watch is only 4.31 mm thick, keeping the overall thickness of the watch below 10 mm, which is a remarkable feat for a complex function watch. However, the real change is the see-through case back, which is made of ceramic for the first time (regular styles are made of titanium). Therefore, this is the only Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar watch made entirely from black ceramic from top to bottom.

The all-black theme continues on the case back and the openwork rotor

   It is reported that the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Black Ceramic Watch Special Edition 2017 pre-sale estimate is between 80,000 and 120,000 Swiss francs, slightly higher than the regular model price ($ 85,000). What is certain is that the actual transaction price will far exceed this. As for what price can be sold, we will wait and see.
