Audemars Piguet is going green with a full platinum Royal Oak Jumbo, the Le Brassus brand’s 39mm octagonal superstar.

Both case and bracelet are crafted from 950 platinum but the watch forgoes the model’s usual Tapisserie dial pattern in favour of an unorthodox smoked green sunburst dial, with the lack of relief changing the Royal Oak’s appearance considerably.

There’s little to distract from the dial itself with just applied 18kt white gold hour markers, hour and minute hands, a date window with black date wheel and minimal text, although the inclusion of the word ‘Automatic’ seems a little superfluous.

The watch itself is just 8.1mm from front-to-back, more than answering the ‘Ultra Thin‘ claim, especially in such a geometric design. This is made possible thanks to its self-winding Calibre 2121 inside, which despite its full-width, 22kt gold winding rotor, usually the first thing to go when designing an ultra-thin movement, is just 3.3mm thick.

The 2.75Hz movement has a power reserve of 40 hours and and is visible through a sapphire crystal exhibition caseback while the watch is water resistant to 50m.

Just 100 pieces of the $105,400 USD watch will be made and are only available through Audemars Piguet’s network of AP House ‘apartments’.
