Looking forward to the upcoming Only Watch 2017 charity auction, we will explore unique works donated by top watchmakers. Today, we turn our attention to the unique work of “Only Watch 2017 fake Audemars Piguet“
It can be said that it is the most famous watch charity event in the industry, and the biennial Only Watch auction returns in 2017. Under the patronage of His Royal Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco, Only Watch seeks to raise funds for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This is achieved by auctioning the watches of some of the best watch manufacturers in the world.
In the past, Only Watch took place in Monaco, but this year it found a new home in Geneva, Switzerland. Mark your calendar as November 11, 2017 to see some incredible watches for sale. Nothing leads this year’s event than the famous auction house Christie’s. Since the first edition of the auction in 2005, it has raised more than 25 million euros.
This year, Audemars Piguet returned to Only copy Watch after the absence of the last two versions. Only Watch 2017 Audemars Piguet series watches are based on the ceramic royal oak perpetual calendar launched in 2017 by SIHH. However, since this is Only Watch, and each donation must be unique, it has its own unique style. Let’s take a closer look.
Only Watch 2017 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar, unique
Only Watch 2017 Audemars Piguet watch is a special edition of the black ceramic Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar. It is worth reminding the reader that the ceramic AP Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar is actually the first fully ceramic timepiece produced by Audemars Piguet. With its huge success, it is not surprising that the Only Watch 2017 Audemars Piguet timepiece draws inspiration from the beauty of black ceramic. However, unlike the first version, this version uses a royal blue Grande Tapisserie dial. From day to night, this special shadow subtly evokes the sky.
This 41 mm watch is called the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Only watch, a unique model (ref. 26599CE.OO.1225CE.01), with a hand-finished black ceramic case, matching bracelet, crown, and Audemars Piguet’s famous octagonal bezel with black case screws. The rim of the dial is colored black, showing the time of 52 weeks of the year, displayed in black and white letters, and the black hour and minute hands are located in the center of the dial and surrounded by black hour markers. These elements contain white light to improve readability, and to complement this contrasting color, the ultra-thin center pointer is also displayed in white.
The three pure gold and gold dials at 3, 9 and 12 o’clock are opposite the “Skylight” blue dial with Audemars Piguet’s iconic Grande Tapisserie motif. These indicate the date, date and month, and the applicable leap year. The timepiece is located at 6 o’clock and displays a spectacular orange photo-realistic moon, which is the moon phase indication of the timepiece. Each number and letter in these registers is also displayed in black to keep the overall design of the watch harmonious.
Of course, the attraction of the perpetual calendar mechanism is that it will (almost) permanently retain the correct date and time. Almost because in 2100, the typical leap year will be ignored, so the perpetual calendar function of the original perfect plan was abandoned.
Powering the Royal Royal Perpetual Calendar Only watch, the unique movement is the 5134 movement. Since 2015, this automatic mechanical movement has been Audemars Piguet’s usual movement for this series. Equipped with a black ceramic case back and a sapphire display. Advanced watch swiss enthusiasts will appreciate the sight of this window with a bottom cover that brings the watch’s remarkable black oscillating rotor into view.
