August 28, 2014, Shanghai News. In the afternoon of the breeze, Audemars Piguet Shanghai Boutique opened a food and wine culture journey. Ms. Li Li, general manager of Audemars Piguet China and Mr. Wang Ji, a watch connoisseur, shared their time stories with VIPs. In 1972 and 1993, these two seemingly ordinary times were praised as subversive years due to the birth of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak series and the Royal Oak Offshore series. French writer Di Sedesson once said that fine wine, like music and art, is used to appreciate and taste; this is the meaning of top watches. To commemorate these two special vintages, the brand specially selects the top wines of the same year, and invites distinguished guests to enjoy the exquisite watchmaking technology in the ‘Audemars Piguet Living Room’.
At the tasting, the VIPs tasted two top wines born in the same age as the Audemars Piguet classic series-French red wine originally produced in 1972 and rosé champagne produced in 1993, paired with Swiss Brass Gruyere cheese ( LeBrassusGruyereCheese), while admiring Audemars Piguet classic watches. The boutique originates from the origin of the brand-the design style of Brassus in the Jurassic Valley of Switzerland surrounds the surroundings, conveying a hint of natural leisure, and guests enjoy the afternoon comfort.
Accompanied by Ms. Li Li and Mr. Wang Ji, the general manager of Audemars Piguet China, the VIPs also appreciated the many exclusive timepieces on display in the store, including the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak series and Audemars Piguet Royal Oak offshore collections. And 2014 new models, several pieces from the Audemars Piguet museum collection from Switzerland, including the pioneers of complex functions-1913 double pursuit hand chronograph, unique elegant appearance-1962 oval case watch, Ingenious Women’s Watch Revolution-1969 Diamond Watch, Perspective Beauty-Hollow Slim Pocket Pocket Watch in 1975, Subverted Art-Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Watch in 1978 and a Gear Corrector Appeared Around 1880 . Its exquisite craftsmanship and strong historical accumulation have made guests appreciate the outstanding and superb century-old watchmaking craftsmanship of Audemars Piguet in complex fields, as well as the brand’s continuous breakthrough in its own innovative strength.
In 1972, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak series counterattacked in the quartz trend and is one of Audemars Piguet’s most representative series. It was born when the tide of quartz movement hit the world of watchmaking. The first Audemars Piguet Royal Oak series is uniquely equipped with Audemars Piguet’s exclusive self-winding movement, the avant-garde stainless steel material, and the first octagonal bezel, setting off a revolution that changes the concept of international watchmaking. Adhering to traditional values, it also displays an extraordinary breakthrough spirit. In 1978, Audemars Piguet’s first gold oak made from Audemars Piguet was another classic masterpiece in the history of Royal Oak development. It contains the 2121 movement and the world’s thinnest self-winding movement (3.05 mm) equipped with a calendar. The 18K yellow gold material outlines the ideal gentleman’s image, which is fascinating at first sight.
In 1993, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore series, which was born to challenge extreme sports, is another peak of Audemars Piguet’s spleen. The 42mm oversized dial and the material-rich design are undoubtedly another brand-new revolution that has made its vanguard status a long time.
Over the years, Audemars Piguet has written legends from page to page in the history of fine watchmaking; time passes the brand’s enthusiasm for watchmaking and excellent skills. The future of excellence.
