Dubai, UAE, August 17, 2017: To mark the 40th anniversary of the first precious metal Royal Oaks, Audemars Piguet has created a new series of Extra-Thin versions in yellow gold. One of the most exciting and talked about launches at SIHH, the so-called 18-carat yellow gold “Jumbo” with a vintage-inspired gold colored “Petite Tapisserie” dial has now landed in the Middle East.
The dial evokes a vintage 1970s aesthetic while offering the very latest in fit, finish, accuracy and reliability. It blends perfectly with the yellow gold case and bracelet, creating a monochromatic aesthetic of beauty and warmth.
The Royal Oak Extra-Thin “Jumbo” pays tribute to the original Royal Oak model, embodying the distinctive features and extensive finishing techniques that define the world’s first luxury sports watch. The new yellow gold model is equipped with the renowned ultra-thin self-winding Manufacture caliber 2121, first introduced half a century ago.
The Royal Oak Extra-Thin is also available in a slightly lighter version of the classic blue dial.
