A new Royal Oak 'Jumbo' extra-flat model combining two technologically advanced materials.
Following the launch of the unique Only Watch presented in 2021, this new Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-thin introduces to the collection the precious Bulk Metallic Glass (BMG), a material used in particular in microelectronics and golf. Discovered in the 1960s, it shares certain characteristics with glass, such as its amorphous nature and hardness.
Lucas Raggi, Development Director at Audemars Piguet: "This first in the watchmaking industry is further proof of the Manufacture's tireless research into materials.”
The solid metallic glass of the bezel, case-back and bracelet pins is mirror-polished to reveal its high resistance to scratches. The smoky burgundy dial of this new Royal Oak Jumbo Extra Flat is decorated with a "sunray" motif. The dial features 18K rose gold luminescent hour markers and hands with a polished and applied AP monogram at 6 o'clock.
Designed and produced by Audemars Piguet's engineers and watchmakers, the 3.2 mm thick Caliber 7121 is housed in the iconic 8.1 mm case without compromising the aesthetics or slenderness of the watch. The crown also incorporates a quickset date mechanism.
