Audemars Piguet has recently given the world a peek at his latest creation. The Royal Oak Concept GMT Tourbillon watch is scheduled to be officially presented at the 2014 Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie and is sure to attract a wealthy, modern man who is looking for a classic watch with a very contemporary style.
While the original version of this watch was released in 2002, the newest model is more modern than its predecessor. The Royal Oak Concept GMT 2014 Tourbillon Watch has a bulky yet summery feel. The revised original movement is not just fascinating but also top quality and the watch has a titanium and light white ceramic case. It is fully water-proof and can be submerged in up to 100 meters of water without any type of damage.
The open-worked dial allows you to see directly into the inner workings of this unique timepiece. Other outside features include a GMT time zone display, a white ceramic upper bridge, a selection indicator mechanism and indicators noting the position of various parts of the time-setting winding stem.
While the style of the watch is sure to surprise some industry watchers who are used to seeing men’s luxury watches made with a traditional sense of style, those who know Audemars Piguet well should not be shocked in the last at seeing his latest creation. While Audemars Piguet has created some fantastic, high popular luxury timepieces, he does not adhere to traditional fashion guidelines or styles. In fact, Mr. Piguet was the first person to ever consider using steel in a luxury watch and he did so with a great deal of success.
The style of this watch is such that it can be worn not only for formal events and gatherings but also while out and about town. The Royal Oak Concept GMT Tourbillon 2014 Watch is made from some of the most durable materials known to mankind, ensuring that a man can wear it when and where he pleases. The watch has a white rubber strap with a titanium AP folding clasp, which serves to make the watch comfortable to any wearer.
The cost of this watch is currently unknown. However, given the fact that the last Tourbillon watch retailed for well over US$ 200,000, it would be realistic to speculate that a man who wants to buy one of these unique, classy watches should expect to pay a high price for the purchase. However, given Audemars Piguet’s outstanding reputation as being one of the best watchmakers in the world, any man who invests in a Royal Oak Concept GMT Tourbillon 2014 watch will not regret the purchase. This unique watch stands out not only because of its ultra-modern style but also high quality workmanship. Unlike many other luxury watches, this particular model is extremely durable, suitable for use for both formal and informal occasions and is sure to catch the eye of anyone who appreciates not only luxury design and fashion but also unique accessories that are not worn by the vast majority of the world’s elite.
