Audemars Piguet|愛彼推出首款34毫米皇家橡樹系列自動上鍊腕錶 The First Audemars Piguet 34 mm Selfwinding Royal Oak

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。

不得不提,這款歷史始於1972的悠久系列,一舉改寫腕錶設計思維並影響至今:一款不鏽鋼製的奢華運動錶,且直徑39毫米的尺寸,在當時可謂「大錶」,因而有了「Jumbo」暱稱。無可取代的幾個經典元素,包括八角形錶圈、格紋裝飾錶盤,以及與錶殼一體成型的錶帶,都是這枚腕錶得以一眼即識的象徵標誌,且無論搭配何種服裝都顯優雅大方。

在全新錶款之中,有兩款腕錶採用精鋼錶殼,搭配銀色或藍灰色大格紋裝飾錶面,藍灰色錶面款式並以鑲鑽錶圈增添璀璨美感。此外,34毫米新款還提供18K玫瑰金版本,搭配銀色大格紋裝飾錶面及鑲鑽錶圈。這四款腕錶都搭載全新5800自動上鍊機芯,具備小時、分鐘、中央秒針及日期顯示功能,搭配專屬自動盤。

有趣的是,愛彼從頭到尾並未表明34毫米皇家橡樹系列自動上鍊腕錶是為女性所造,而是「專為手腕較為纖細的人士推出」;明顯男士也能戴上。同時,品牌也強調:「34毫米錶款並非用以取代現有的33毫米皇家橡樹系列石英腕錶,只是讓皇家橡樹系列自動上鍊腕錶的款式更加齊全。」

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.”
