Min gode ven S M inviterede til en halv fridag i sin have og mellem de ufatteligt mange glas vin nåede jeg også at nyde hans Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Michael Schumacher af rødguld og cermet.
Lad mig starte med at sige, at jeg ikke er AP ambassadør (og hvorfor er jeg egentlig ikke det ??). Jeg har blot hængt ud med venner i den foregående uge, der tilfældigvis deler min kærlighed for 39 millimeter Royal Oaks, hvilket dermed fylder dette indlæg. Under en frokost bar to af drengene hver et Royal Oak Perpetual af stål. Det ene dog med skiven fra guldversionen, der dermed har guld visere og timemarkører. Den fikse kombination giver uret en kærkommen kontrast i et ellers meget "travlt" skivelayout.
Let me start by saying that these pictures originate from sheer coincedence. I am not an AP ambassador (and WHY NOT??). I just happen to have friends who share the same love for the 39 millimetre Royal Oaks. And that was indeed proven last week, during a lunch and two coffee meetings at my local hang out.
Et nyt år betyder nye drømme. I hvertfald for Urtossen. Ikke mindst her pre-SIHH, før jeg bliver visuelt overfaldet af nyheder fra de 16 urmærker, der udstiller under denne fire dage lange messe (Girard-Perregaux og JeanRichard udstiller fra i år på Basel World). Efter disse messer er man så fuld af nyheder og ofte overvejer jeg ældre modeller, i stedet for de nye, jeg netop har set.
A new year means new dreams. At least for me. Especially pre-SIHH, before I am visually attacked by news from the 16 brands on show. Undoubtedly there will be new models that I would love to put on my wrist but usually I return with a full head unable to put any new watch on the "Wanted" list.
Well, not so much a facelift, but my trusty Audemars Piguet Royal Oak of pinkgold (rosegold? What´s the difference actually?) was in need of a new strap. Been wearing this watch quite a lot and the strap was starting to show my love for this critter.

After New York and Milan, the exhibition event dedicated to the 40th anniversary of the Royal Oak, the iconic watch of the Audemars Piguet Manufacture, opened its doors on Tuesday June 5th in the evening at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. The preview was attended by over 700 people who were welcomed by Jasmine Audemars, Chairwoman of the Board of Directors, Tim Sayler, Audemars Piguet’s Chief Marketing Officer and Nicolas Besançon, Director of Audemars Piguet France.
Went to Paris to enjoy the impressive 40th anniversary of the iconic Audemars Piguet Royal Oak. And what a spectacular treat that was! 100 timepieces were on show and celebrated by 800 guests! My mood while attending was however somewhat challenged as I had just interviewed the AP Chief Marketing Officer, Tim Sayler. During the interview Tim wore the incredibly handsome Concept Tourbillon GMT. What an incredibly cool watch that is!
These days I'm testing the very waify and slender Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar with automatic movement. The model is made of steel and surprisingly not of neither white gold nor platinum. I think it's quite bold of Audemars Piguet to offer such a complication in steel, but come to think of it, it only makes sense as the original Royal Oak from 1972 also was made of steel. Which was 40 years ago this year.
With the 39-mm ref. 15300 Royal Oak soon to be a thing of the past due to the intro of the 41-mm ref. 15400 Royal Oak introduced at this year's SIHH watch show I thought it would be only fair to show just how well the 39-mm Royal Oak fits the wrist.
