SIHH 2016: Audemars Piguet live taken pictures of the novelties

I have first live taken pictures and a sound recording of the Supersonnerie for you. There is more to come about Audemars Piguet later…

 

Time is so limited here in Geneva that I can hardly catch up with all the things I would like to publish for you. This morning let me entertain you with some first live taken pictures of the Audemars Piguet novelties …

This for sure is one of the highlights…

 

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Supersonnerie

A first prototype was shown to me last year and now we have the market-ready products. This by far the loudest minute repeater on the market and one of the finest sounding one.

  • Nice recoding of the sound.

    Tell me, is there any difference between a sonnerie and a minute repeater? I think it is just sematic thing, but inquiring minds want to know.

    Thanks.

  • Nice sound recording for the Concept watch but it looks like it is hard to read the time at a glance.

  • I found my answer on AP’s website. The Diver chrono case is 14.75mm thick and the regular 42mm Offshore is 14.20mm thick. I’m somewhat surprised the Diver is thicker, but I guess you have to build up the case to withstand water pressure at 300m.

  • I like the Offshore Diver chronos. They harken back to the early Offshores that came in tropical colors. I’m curious what is the case thickness of the Diver versus the regular 42mm Offshore?

    Thanks for posting the live pics.

  • Alex, like your sound reading of the new concept watch. Very clear sound which I know is something very difficult to achieve. Remember when the Sonnata came out by UN and the late Rolf Schnyder explained to a few people how difficult it is to achieve a clear gong or multiples within a wristwatch.
