Audemars Piguet launched the Royal Oak concept car “Black Panther”
The debut of the Audemars Piguet-Marvel partnership was hinted at in its CEO at the end of 2019, but it was delayed for almost a year-now it’s finally realized. Francois-Henry Bennahmias, owner of Audemars Piguet, and American comedian Kevin Hart (Kevin Hart) together at a live event in Los Angeles yesterday The first product that Marvel collaborated with was revealed.
Inspired by superheroes who are also the rulers of the fictional kingdom of Wakanda, the Royal Oak concept “Black Panther” flying tourbillon is not only famous for the comic characters depicted by the hand-carved platinum sculptures on the dial, but also cited Attention. It is a compact version of the super-large Royal Oak Concept watch in history, making it the most durable Concept to date.
After the watch was unveiled, it was auctioned on site and all proceeds were donated to charity. The auction included multiple experiences with athletes from Audemars Piguet (AP), such as lunch with tennis champion Serena Williams, but the highlight of the auction was the highlight. It is a unique version of the Royal Oak Concept “Black Panther” flying tourbillon, and its 18k white gold case is decorated with a hand-engraved Wakandan pattern.
After fierce bidding from buyers from multiple countries/regions, the winner got this watch at a price of US$5.2 million, which is more than 30 times the retail price of the standard model. This is the history of AP watches in auctions. recording.
The Royal Oak concept film “Black Panther” has been widely criticized on the Internet. In my opinion, this is largely an unfair criticism.
The design of this watch is very similar to the Gerald Genta Fantasy watches of the 1990s, which have Disney cartoon characters printed on the dial and are popular among some of the most important watch collectors in the world. Like Genta watches, Black Panther watches are also very true. The dial does have a cartoon-like appearance, which is undoubtedly an ideal embodiment of comic book inspiration.
At the same time, the watch is no different from the fake Richard Mille watch with miniature dragon and tiger sculptures, but it is relatively cheaper.
Just like AP timepieces, the execution quality of the watch is undoubtedly high quality. Although some dials look like comic characters on the dial, the new Royal Oak Concept has a hand-made pure gold panther character, usually labeled as “art.” .
There is also the watch itself. Its width is 42 mm, making it the easiest Royal Oak Concept ever to manage. The earlier Concept model was too large, and even the lightest model was clumsy on the wrist. In contrast, the size of the Black Panther version is almost similar to the ordinary replica Royal Oak Offshore, which will greatly improve the ergonomics.
Mr. Bennahmias or anyone at the Associated Press has never explicitly mentioned the watch, but there is no doubt that the watch and its release conference carry subtle political and social information.
Black Panther is African, and the most famous movie is the late African American actor Chadwick Boseman (Chadwick Boseman). At the same time, most of the celebrities who participated in the conference were not white. They include Kevin Hart, Serena Williams, basketball LeBron James, boxer Anthony Joshua and Chinese singer Lu Han (Lu Han).
Although most customers are from Asia, this watch and its release are not typical in a predominantly white European industry. It may be related to the fact that Olivier Audemars, the vice chairman of Audemars Piguet (also a member of the founding Piguet family), has mixed relations (he is said to be the next chairman). At least Mr. Benahemias and his colleagues should be appreciated.
Wearing a trademark dress made of Vibranium-a super metal resistant to everything-the Panther is micro-reproduced on the dial. The picture starts with an 18k white gold disc, which is then ground on a CNC machine to form a blank. Then laser etching is performed to make the character’s suit form a fine texture similar to fabric.
Finally, before hand-drawing, first sculpt the figure by hand to achieve the smallest details, such as eyes and paws. Black paint is applied in layers to create shadows, while parts of the garment are left unpainted, exposing the polished platinum surface for contrast. According to Audemars Piguet, both carving and painting take about 30 hours.
The case is 42 mm wide and 14.6 mm high (thin for the Royal Oak Concept). The case retains the carvings of the previous Royal Oak Concept watches. The angular style-the outline is slightly arched-but moderately on the case The ventilated titanium inserts are inspired by the lugs of the panther costume.
The case is made entirely of titanium and is equipped with a black ceramic bezel. Both are done in the traditional Royal Oak way, which means alternating brushed and polished surfaces to a very high standard. fake luxury watches
The interior is calibrated. In 2965, a manual winding movement with a flying tourbillon regulator and a 72-hour power reserve. Similar to last year’s Royal Oak Concept frosted gold flying tourbillon movement, the movement has eye-catching textured bridges on the front and back.
Visible below the “black panther” graphic on the dial, the titanium base is inlaid with a panel with an uneven embossed polygonal surface based on a superhero’s suit. Also in the titanium alloy, the bridge on the back is sandblasted and engraved with a similar pattern, but it is realized by channels on a flat surface instead of embossing. The bridge is further treated with black and gray coatings to highlight the carved patterns.
After the debut of the Royal Oak concept car “Black Panther”, a live auction was conducted on the Internet-pre-registered participants bid for Audemars Piguet events from all over the world. Its proceeds will benefit First Book and Ashoka, charities that aim to provide education to disadvantaged children.
With Michael Friedman, the head of Audemars Piguet’s complex issues, holding a mallet, the auction started a big one: a golf match, and then a match with British golfer Ian Poole.
But its ending is even greater, and its unique platinum Royal Oak concept “Black Panther” flying tourbillon (reference number 26623BC.GG.D077CA.01) is amazing.
Once again, it came to the hands of a buyer in China, the buyer’s bid surpassed several other countries, the most famous of which are Germany, Russia, the United Arab Emirates and other countries in the Middle East.
The one-time Royal Oak concept “Black Panther” features its white gold case, which is all hand-engraved with patterns inspired by superhero costumes and similar to the patterns on the watch movement.
