In recent days, Audemars Piguet has launched a new 38mm Royal Oak, a limited edition of 100 pieces.
The chosen size is probably one of the most consensual that fits most writs, we remember here that Audemars Piguet has a wide range of options for its most emblematic watch, the Royal Oak, 8 sizes that start at 31 mm and end at 44 mm, currently divided into 102 models, so it is difficult not to find at least one that appeals to any enthusiast. Although this release is only available in a few pieces, it promises to be another great option to add the range of choices.
This watch comes in a white gold case with a light metallic blue on the dial with “Grande Tapisserie” pattern and a dark blue inner bezel, the same features that we can see in the 3 subdials, two chronograph counters and a second counter. On the dial we can also find hour-markers applied in white gold and hands with luminescence, a date window in the same tone as the dial at 4 ½ o’clock, a screwed crown and two push-buttons, ending in a white gold integrated bracelet. Within an automatic movement Caliber 2385 with 40 hours power reserve.
Final considerations, it is a very interesting novelty for the collection, taking into account that it is the only one with 38 mm blue dial and the only blue chronograph below 41 mm, in terms of innovations, there is nothing relevant to record.
