在這之前，愛彼（Audemars Piguet）皇家橡樹系列（Royal Oak）腕錶的最小尺寸是33毫米，搭載的是石英機芯。現在，推出比33毫米稍微大一點點的34毫米款式，並且搭載全新開發的自動上鍊機芯，對機械腕錶著迷的女性愛錶者來說，無非是一個好選擇：既合襯纖細手腕，又可三不五時翻過錶背欣賞機芯運作、感受像心臟跳動一樣的唯美振頻。
Formerly, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak collection came in its smallest size 33mm and features quartz movement. Currently, a little larger size, the 34mm model, is launched and powered by the newly developed self-winding calibre. To the female mechanical watch fans, it’s definitely a good alternative; in addition to the size fit to the delicate wrist, the watch collector can flip it over now and then to see the visible movement through the case-back and feel the regular motion as impressive as the beating of the heart.
We must mention, the masterpiece was introduced in 1972, and it started the new design concept that changed the way watches were worn from then till now. The stainless steel luxury sports watch with a 39mm size was so-called “a big watch” and nicknamed “Jumbo”. With the irreplaceable classic elements, including the octagon bezel, “Grande Tapisserie” dial, and integrated bracelet, the model becomes a highly distinctive icon, and it goes well with all kinds of outfit, elegant and delightful.
Among the new watches, two model are designed with stainless steel cases and the dial with a silver or blue-grey colored “Grande Tapisserie” pattern. The blue-gray colored tapisserie dial is available with the diamond-set bezel for showing brilliantly. Besides, the 34mm Royal Oak is available in 18-carat pink gold edition with the silver-toned “Grande Tapisserie” dial and the diamond-set bezel. The 4 models are powered by the brand-new self-winding calibre 5800 and with the movements of hours, minutes, center seconds and date, endured with a dedicated oscillating weight.
More interestingly, Audemars Piguet has never launched the 34mm Royal Oak self-winding model only for women but exclusively “for the smaller wrists”; obviously, the size is enough for men to wear. Meanwhile, the brand emphasized, “The new 34mm models are not replacing the current 33mm Royal Oak Quartz models, but complement the existing Royal Oak self-winding collection.”
