To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Royal Oak series, Swiss luxury watch brand Audemars Piguet launched a new generation of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin 16202, equipped with the latest research and development and self-made Calibre 7121 self-winding ultra-thin movement. The four watches launched this time are made of stainless steel, 950 platinum, 18K rose gold and 18K yellow gold. The four timepieces are equipped with an automatic oscillating weight for the 50th anniversary of the Royal Oak series in the same color as the case.
With a diameter of 39mm, this luxury sports replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin watch was considered too large by the standards of the time, hence the nickname “Jumbo”. Over the years, Audemars Piguet has retained this nickname for the 39mm Royal Oak self-winding ultra-thin model. The large form factor of the Royal Oak is not only a design consideration, but also a functional need – due to the large diameter of the Calibre 2121 (28mm), the case is unusually composed of two parts The single-piece construction of the calibre, eight hexagonal screws must penetrate the bezel, seal and case around the periphery of the movement.
In the first 20 years of the replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak series, Audemars Piguet launched only one 39mm self-winding ultra-thin watch, most of which were sold before 1982. In 1992, on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Royal Oak series, this watch returned to the stage. Since then, the “Jumbo” models have been introduced, shining brightly in the design of cases, straps and dials. In 2000, the Ref. 15202 model was introduced, and the logo “Jumbo” ushered in a historical turning point – a more free and unruly reinterpretation of the original aesthetic design, using a new dial color scheme, sapphire first introduced in 1992. The crystal glass case back is also back. With the ingenious combination of exquisite tradition and modern design, the “Jumbo” watch is once again popular, becoming one of the most sought-after Royal Oak Royal Oak series watches, and further promoting the Royal Oak watch to become today’s cultural icon.
This year, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Royal Oak series, Audemars Piguet launched a new Ref. 16202 model “Jumbo” watch, which uses four new watches to interpret a rich selection of materials and dial colors. Its aesthetic design has not changed from the Ref. 15202 model, but it is equipped with a new self-winding ultra-thin movement that is more suitable for modern lifestyles, opening a new prelude to the Royal Oak Royal Oak series “Jumbo” ultra-thin watch.
