Have you ever ever heard the expression “Shut up and play the hits?” No one goes to see The Rolling Stones to listen to them play b-sides from Soiled Work. No, they go to listen to “Gimme Shelter,” “Sympathy for the Satan,” and Paint It, Black.” This watch is Audemars Piguet shutting up and enjoying the hits – and to nice success, I would add. What we have here’s a Royal Oak (verify), a perpetual calendar (verify), and a completely white ceramic watch (verify). It is arduous to think about one thing that AP might do at this stage (we’re not speaking 15202 variations right here, individuals) that may be extra crowd-pleasing and gasp-inducing than this.
Technically talking, this watch relies on the ref. 26574 Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar that launched again in 2015. It is received the identical fundamental form, the identical dial structure, and the identical caliber 5134 motion inside. The factor that units this boutique-exclusive variation aside is its white ceramic case and bracelet, paired with a fantastic blue dial. It has been obtainable in a black ceramic case with matching bracelet and matching black dial since SIHH 2017 (we confirmed you some early hands-on images right here) and since then it has been one of many hardest Audemars Piguet watches to get out of the entire assortment. Should you’re not already an awesome shopper of their boutiques you may mainly neglect even asking. Whereas the white colorway is perhaps just a little extra area of interest, I do not count on it to be any simpler to acquire.
