This AP Royal Oak is a boutique edition that looks beautiful in white gold. It also feels nice to wear, with the extra weight you don’t get from wearing a stainless steel AP. Interestingly enough, this watch was supposed to initially be made as a stainless steel version. However, the final decision was to make it in gold, and we can see why.
On the dial, you will see that it has a pink gold coloring, surrounded by a white gold construction. From afar, you could see it is essentially the same as the regular 39mm Extra-Thin Royal Oak. That includes it featuring the iconic Petite Tapisserie pattern located on the dial, as well as white gold markers and hands, along with showing the date at the 3 o’clock position.
The movement is AP's well-known 2121 auto movement. With this movement, you get up to 40 hours of power reserves. This watch's movement features your standard hours, minutes, and date, so it is nothing too fancy. The diameter comes in at 28.4mm while the thickness clocks in at 3.05mm.
Another feature is the inclusion of the embedded jewels. In total, there are 36 of them, and again, they stay subtle as to not draw too much attention. The white gold integrated bracelet looks quite sophisticated and seamless, offering a sleek and classic design.
Since the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 'Jumbo' Extra-Thin only has 75 pieces to call its own, the price is going to come at a premium. Currently, this luxury timepiece retails at $55,400. It may be very challenging finding one at retail, if that is even possible. However, you have a slightly higher chance of obtaining it on the secondary market.
The new 'Jumbo' version of the Extra-Thin Audemars Piguet Royal Oak is a beautifully refined and classic take on the iconic AP Royal Oak that has become one of the most popular luxury timepieces today. If you want to wear something with a bit more subtlety than other options out there, then the gold limited edition could be just the watch for you.
Watch Aficionado happens to have one of these ultra-rare limited edition AP watches. Since there are only 75 pieces in existence, there is a premium you will have to pay to get your hands on one. However, the Audemars Piguet price for this stunning watch is well worth it if you want to consider yourself as part of an elite circle of individuals who enjoy a unique take on a classic look, while getting that AP quality design.
