Earlier today, Audemars Piguet unveiled a new lineup of watches that will release throughout the remainder of 2021. One trio in particular that captured our attention includes diamond-set versions of the Swiss manufacturer's Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin.
Coming this June, the Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin will be available in two 18-carat white gold executions — one with a light blue dial and one with a black dial — in addition to an 18-carat pink gold variation with a light blue dial. The light blue dial examples emerge with color-coordinated Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating.
All three versions of the new AP Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin are housed in a 39mm case and set with 1,102 brilliant-cut diamonds (7.09 carats) in the case, bezel, and bracelet. A “Petite Tapisserie” pattern draws added attention to the dial, where baguette-cut diamond hour-markers reside. Audemars Piguet branding then marks the timepiece just below noon, while a complementary AP logo is positioned on the lower portion of the dial.
The watch's Manufacture Calibre 2121 movement is visible courtesy of a glare-proof sapphire caseback, as an open-worked, bidirectional 22-carat gold oscillating weight powers the watch using the motion of the wearer's wrist.
Audemars Piguet's new diamond-set Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin watches are due to release in June at AP boutiques for CHF 139,100.
