"Jumbo" with Tourbillon: Royal Oak Self-Winding Flying Tourbillon Ultra Thin (RD#3)
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Self-winding Ultra-Thin Flying Tourbillon (RD#3) replica swiss watches houses the flying tourbillon in a slim "Jumbo" case. To make this complication of the "Jumbo" possible, an entirely new movement had to be developed. At the same time, the watchmaker wanted to keep the classic proportions. At the beginning of the year, the Manufacture opened the anniversary year of the collection with updated models. Now comes this "Research and Development" section, which puts the focus on the mechanics.
Home Oak Self-winding Flying Tourbillon Ultra-thin (RD#3) Remains Original
This 'Jumbo' features a stainless steel case with a diameter of 39mm and a height of 8.1mm. Thus, despite the tourbillon, it retains the iconic proportions of the collection. Likewise, the typical angular bezel with visible screws, as well as the exhibition caseback. Water resistance is maintained at 5 bar (about 50 meters).
"Night Blue, Cloud 50" small check on the dial
The dial of the Royal Oak ultra-thin self-winding flying tourbillon (RD#3) is also faithful to the collection. It presents a petite Tapisserie in the classic blue "Bleu Nuit, Nuage 50". Colors are created through a PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) process and are designed to provide long-lasting color. The minute scale is printed on the dial, as is the inscription "Audemars Piguet". Two Baignoire-shaped hands with luminous coating indicate the time. Finally, the flying tourbillon is located at 6 o’clock. Its cage is made of titanium, giving the dial a soft contrast.replica Audemars Piguet ROYAL OAK OFFSHORE
This new flat movement makes complication possible
The Royal Oak ultra-thin self-winding flying tourbillon (RD#3) marks the debut of the 2968 calibre, which took five years of development. The biggest difficulty was fitting the tourbillon into the smaller size of the "Jumbo". To this end, the watchmaker designed a peripheral drive for the tourbillon cage. This not only ensures better energy distribution, but also makes the system lighter. The flying tourbillon removes the upper bridge for installation, making it appear to float. Overall, the goal was to reveal as much of the escapement's mechanics as possible.
On the back is the "50-YEARS" rotor to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Royal Oak. Here, it is made of rhodium-plated 22-karat rose gold and provides the barrel with a maximum power autonomy of 50 hours. The movement consists of a total of 226 parts and measures just 3.4 mm in height. It runs at 3 Hz. Last but not least, trim includes polished interior corners and a modern line cut pattern.best replica watches uk
