These are technically Royal Oaks for women. Don’t let this scare you

The watches: a quartet of ceramic glazed Royal Oaks and a variety of gold
The truth : If you don’t like watches taken to the extreme with diamonds and all the flavors of gold, you may well be fine. Over the holiday weekend, Audemars Piguet released what it calls its ‘new women’ for 2021: a tight collection of versions of the Royal Oak. Watches come as a remix EP, like letting Diplo play with the Bob Dylans Blood on the rails. This new watch collection takes the iconic watch from the 70s and adds all the extravagance of modern life and style.
The biggest novelty is black ceramic, which Audemars Piguet has made a staple of its most fashionable novelties. The material has appeared on openwork watches (i.e. parts that remove the traditional dial to expose the mechanics of the watch below), as well as tourbillon and perpetual calendar watches, but all of that is removed. for this version. There is nothing fancy about this new ceramic Royal Oak, other than rose gold accents and a date window. While the extra features are great, sometimes the best weapon in a brand’s arsenal is simplicity. There’s a reason collectors love the sleek Royal Oak with nothing but the date or the no-frills Patek Philippe 5711, a watch so popular that Patek deleted the model to keep it from devouring the entire brand.
The other three watches rearrange diamonds and gold in a glitzy game of Tetris. The two flagship elements of the group include a skeleton dial watch with a rainbow of diamonds around the bezel. In a show of excess worthy of Xzibit, it also has a frosted gold case and bracelet, meaning it has been repeatedly struck with a diamond-tipped tool to create little bumps that create an effect. scintillating. The other is a rose gold watch with a hypnotic “chameleon” dial that changes from purple to pink depending on the light. (It also has a bezel set with 32 amethysts.) The last watch in the quartet is white gold and features a dial so blue that it is reminiscent of a bottle of Gatorade from the 90s. The case and strap of this watch are also frosted. .
Hot girl watch summer: Technically, Audemars Piguet offers these watches as part of its women’s collection. If so, that’s another good reason to explode the gender divide that still exists in the personal style world. Of course, these watches are a bit smaller – the black ceramic measures 34 millimeters – but the timepieces usually get smaller and smaller. The latest Rolex Explorer is reduced to the truly vintage 36mm diameter. The color shouldn’t be enough to scare anyone off either, especially considering how the industry has embraced Rolex’s red, green and brilliantly lacquered Stella dials over the past year or so. Women’s watches are, quite simply, watches: they look great on Cardi B’s wrist, but also Drake’s. If men are adventurous enough to wear skirts now, they can certainly wear a slightly smaller black ceramic Royal Oak than usual.
Where and when to buy them: The watches are now available in Audemars Piguet boutiques.
