Audemars Piguet Unveils Its First Semester Novelties for 2023
Featuring the Royal Oak Selfwinding, Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph, “Jumbo” Extra-thin, and Code 11.59 watches.
Audemars Piguet has revealed four novelties for the first half of 2023. The lineup consists of four Royal Oak pieces, ranging from Selfwinding, Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph, “Jumbo” Extra-thin, as well as the Code 11.59 model.
Starting off with AP’s Royal Oak Selfwinding, this is the first time the model features an opulent 18-carat yellow gold build with a dial made of natural turquoise. Priced at $61,500 USD, the 37mm watch is fitted with AP’s latest self-winding movement caliber 5900, boasting a 60-hour power reserve while measuring only 3.9mm in thickness.
Moving onto the new Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph, the watch features a 42 mm-sized, black ceramic case with a retail price of $84,400 USD. It’s presented in a monochrome design comprising a matching black ceramic bracelet, and a tonal Petite Tapisserie dial. Unlike traditional chronographs, this timepiece is integrated with AP’s latest automatic calibre 4404, which now allows restarting without the need to stop and reset first.
Priced at $79,300 USD, this limited-edition, boutique-exclusive Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin model is powered by AP’s latest ultra-thin movement. Sheltering the self-winding calibre 7121 is a 39 mm-sized case made of 18-carat white gold. The case also features a radiant blue-grained dial, while the caseback is outfitted with a glare-proofed sapphire crystal.
Last but not least, AP has introduced six new 41mm references to its Code 11.59 series. Hailed as an “aesthetic and ergonomic evolution” by Swiss Maison, the new design emphasize readability and comfort for the wearer. Four of the variations are crafted entirely in steel, while the remaining two feature a black ceramic case middle. Created specifically for the collection, the latest iterations arrive in a brand-new patterned “Bleu Nuit, Nuage 50 dial.”
