Audemars Piguet once again presents a new Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin 16202XT that comes for the first time in Titanium and Bulk Metallic Glass (BMG).
This new combination of material from which the case and bracelet of the new Royal Oak are made, although it is for the first time applied to a model from the regular collection, it had previously been tried out in a single piece with the reference 15202XT in 2021 produced for the “Only Watch” and was responsible for raising CHF 3.1 million for charity.
The new Royal Oak thus once again wears the same case with dimensions of 39mm in diameter and 8.10mm in thickness, which features a fully polished bezel that matches the connection links of the bracelet and its chamfers and also of the case, while the entire remaining surface of the set comes with a vertical brushed finish, unlike the “Only Watch” from two years ago whose surface had a sandblasted finish.
Its burgundy gradient dial is the watch’s main showcase and follows exactly the same layout as the celebratory edition 16202PT “50th Anniversary” in platinum with a green dial, featuring a sunray finish, pink gold applied hour markers and two centre hands all filled with Super-LumiNova and a non-frame date window matching the hue of the dial.
At its heart beats the In-house automatic movement Caliber 7121, which although slightly larger than the former low-frequency Caliber 2121, operates at 28,800 Vph and offers up to 52 hours of power reserve (half a day more than the previous one).
As already mentioned, the new Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin reference adds to the current collection and is now available in the brand’s official boutiques and authorized retailers with the price available upon request.
