The Audemars Piguet Ref. #26124ST.OO.D018CR.01 is part of the long tradition of AP timepieces designed with dedication to perfection. Designed in 2016, this 39mm case Royal Oak has a steel case and the traditional octagonal bezel with visible screws at each corner – a design that became the standard in 1972. The blue dial has a raised “tapisserie” pattern which adds stunning interest to the timepiece. The hour markers are in white gold and filled with luminescent paint for visibility at night or in the dark.
At the 9 o’clock position there is a power reserve indicator. At 3 o’clock is a date dial with a date hand, rather than a date window, so often seen in other timepieces. At 6 o’clock there is a unique 2nd time dial with both minutes and hours hands. This is quite different from other complications which often use a single hand to indicate the 2nd time zone. It is truly two clocks in one singular timepiece. Next to the 2nd time dial, at the 7 o’clock position, is a small Day/Night time dial.
The AP 26124ST.OO.D018CR.01 is powered by a caliber AP 2329 with module 2846 which is built with 33 jewels, and features a power reserve of 38 hours. The timepiece is protected by sapphire glass and supports a waterproofness to a depth of 150 feet.
Rubber B has developed two exquisite bands for the Audemars Piguet Ref. #26124ST.OO.D018CR.01 utilizing an exclusive Velcro® Alfatex® fastening strip. Since the blue dial AP originally came with a blue bracelet, Rubber B has developed a stunning blue band as well as a matching black band out of Vulcanized rubber.
Manufactured in Switzerland, the Rubber B bands are designed to fit the AP watch case perfectly. The attachment loop contains a Titanium insert for optimum performance, while the Velcro is made from hand-sewn HYDROTURF® Marine Thread, which has maximum resistance to UV-rays, atmospheric conditions, & chemicals.
