Replica Audemars Piguet watches

The scoop of a very special Replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak dedicated to Michael Schumacher was out earlier this week, but officially, it was merely presented tonight, at a launch event organized at Corinna Schumacher’s ranch in Givrins, in the Swiss canton of Vaud. This is not an ordinary Royal Oak, oh dear, how do I dare using the word ordinary in the same sentence with Royal Oak – as it is a groundbreaking model for several reasons.
It’s good as well due to that it means we get shiny new models in the latter half of the year, like this slamming new Replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Tourbillon Chronograph – reference 26550AU.OO.A002CA.01. (takes deep breath).
The chronograph is driving two central hands which can be controlled independently via three push-pieces – the first sited at the conventional two o’clock position to start and stop the chronograph; the second sited at the four o’clock position to re-set the chronograph, and the all-important third push-piece sited at the nine o’clock position.
Besides, the extra 44mm case is made from Forged Carbon, with a ceramic bezel and chronograph pushers, and titanium crown guards. It’s astonishingly thin for an automatic tourbillion as well, coming in at 14mm thick. This third push piece makes it possible to simultaneously stop either of the two chronograph hands, while returning the other hand to zero. Strictly it’s a remarkable structure, and in accord with the sort of hi-tech material fusion that the ROO line (the ROO is kind of like a supercharged Royal Oak collection, first officially launched in 1993 – a forerunner for the oversized sports watch trend). The Replica watch face has a lot of cool stuff going on as well, featuring the iconic Royal Oak Tapisserie dial finish (merely in ROO scaled Mega Tapisserie), exposed tourbillon at 6, and a cut out at 1 through which you can view gear train – and the oscillating weight (made from platinum don’t cha know) is noticeable through the sapphire episode ring on the outer edge of the replica watches dial.
The Replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Offshore Tourbillon timepieces will be limited to merely 50 pieces, to honour the number of F1 World Championship point-winning races in which he competed. It is the first time Audemars Piguet would develop from scratch a new movement at the request of one if its ambassadors.
