Chanel Specially Made Premiere Tourbillon Watch Helps 2013only Watch Charity Auction

In order to support the 2013 Only Watch charity auction, Chanel specially customized a ‘Première Flying Tourbillon’ floating tourbillon watch.

 Chanel’s watchmaking ideas are derived from a series of iconic symbols that Chanel cherishes. These far-reaching symbols represent the core of Chanel’s creation, and they are matched by the simple shapes, concise colors and innovative materials in the works.

 The Première watch, the first watch launched by Chanel in 1987, is the best interpretation of this extraordinary creativity. The octagonal dial of this watch is inspired by the outline of the Fontaine Square, while echoing the shape of the bottle cap of N ° 5 perfume.

 In 2012, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Chanel’s first watch, Chanel launched the “Première Flying Tourbillon” floating tourbillon watch, which opened the mysterious world of complicated mechanical watches for ladies. This remarkable tourbillon is the result of close collaboration between Chanel and designers, engineers and watchmakers from Renaud & Papi (APRP SA), the advanced research and development department of Audemars Piguet.

 Chanel’s ‘Première Flying Tourbillon’ floating tourbillon watch won the ‘Best Women’s Watch’ at the 12th GPHG Awards Ceremony held last year.

New Color Combination Tasting Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Series Chronograph

Nowadays, many watch friends are particularly fond of large-sized watches, and in the trend forward, we have to mention Audemars Piguet. Audemars Piguet launched the Royal Oak Offshore Collection in 1993, which foreseeably brought large-diameter watches to the market. Despite the appearance of many discordant sounds, it turned out that the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore series was successful and became another popular Audemars Piguet series. Today, Audemars Piguet has added a new member to the Royal Oak Offshore Collection. The brown dial hits the blue sub-disc, and the new color is eye-catching. Next, let’s enjoy the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak offshore series chronograph (watch model: 26470ST.OO.A099CR.01)

   The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore series was designed by designer Emmanuel Gueit, took its exterior design from the Royal Oak series, and after innovative design, it was eventually named ‘Royal Oak Offshore’. The Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph has the iconic design of the series, with chocolate brown and Caribbean blue as the main colors, bringing a new visual effect.

Watch real shot

   Audemars Piguet’s polishing of the case is notoriously exquisite. Three different polishing methods-brushed, mirror-polished and matte-polished, make the stainless steel surface shine in the light. From the side of the watch, we can observe the grinding of the different cut surfaces of the case, with different levels.

   The octagonal bezel and eight hexagonal screws are the signature design of the Royal Oak and Royal Oak Offshore series, so you can recognize it at a glance.

   The crown is located on one side of the watch and is wrapped in hexagonal blue rubber to prevent slipping during operation and easy adjustment. It is engraved with the brand LOGO ‘AP’ and the timing buttons on both sides can start the pause or reset the timing device.

   The brown dial is decorated with ‘Méga Tapisserie’ oversized check pattern. It hits the blue inner ring of the speedometer and three blue functional sub-disks. The strong color contrast is full of vitality. A round date display at 3 o’clock adds another useful feature to the watch. The large Arabic numerals echo the central ten-pointer, and they are all coated with a luminous coating, which can also read the time clearly at night.

    The movement uses the Audemars Piguet Calibre 3126/3840 self-produced movement, which provides a power reserve of 50 hours and is waterproof to a depth of 100 meters. Turning to the back of the case, the movement looks like an eye-catching gold pendulum engraved with the brand ‘AP’ logo.

   The hand-stitched large checkered brown crocodile leather strap is decorated with blue stitching, showing a mature and elegant style. With a stainless steel pin buckle, it is not easy to fall off when worn.

Summary: In the Royal Oak Offshore series, the word ‘adventure’ is everywhere, and the distinctive and bold personality traits always cause hot debate. Classic design and new color combinations add new life to the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph. If you like this watch, you may wish to pay more attention to it.
