Introducing: The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph In 38mm

Snappy Take

While the vast majority of the consideration encompassing Audemars Piguet is being paid to the pristine CODE 11.59 assortment , that’s not all that AP is delivering at SIHH 2019. Indeed, there are some downright executioner new minor departure from the Royal Oak that you’ll certainly need to think about. Chief among these? The Royal Oak Selfwinding Chronograph in another 38mm size! Indeed, you read that right: the straightforward F. Piguet-fueled Royal Oak Chrono is accessible in a more modest size, sitting comfortably between the “Gigantic” and the 37mm Royal Oak models. As of late, this fake watch prices was just accessible in the 41mm size, which supplanted the old 39mm models back in 2012. There are four variants of the new fake watch prices two in steel and two in rose gold, with minor departure from white/dark/silver dials throughout. These will be another backbone in the AP assortment and I would expect that these four references are only the start of a mainstream new sub-collection.

Starting Thoughts

I’m feeling free to call it now: These fake watch prices are one of the sleeper hits of SIHH 2019. Indeed, they’re not progressive and they don’t present any new developments or materials to the blend, however they take an exemplary model with a notable development and offer an important update that makes the fake watch prices more contemporary and wearable (as I would like to think). Furthermore, chronographs! Who doesn’t adore a decent chrono these days? Of the bunch, I think it’s the steel model with the silver and blue dial that I’m generally eager to find in the metal, yet honestly every one of the four look damn great from the early images. You can wager we’ll have huge loads of hands-on inclusion of these coming to you soon, so stay tuned!
