Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph iN Black Ceramic

At the beginning of 2022 we all welcomed in a huge range of updates across the “Royal Oak” collection, as Audemars Piguet celebrated its 50th anniversary. In regards to the “Royal Oak Chronograph” models, they were updated with the new 4401 caliber movement and came crafted out of various alloys. Now the AP chrono has added one more option into the mix, to keep us all questioning which one we would wear best.The 41mm case is made of black ceramic with a mix of polished accents and a vertically brushed surface finish. Mounted to the case is AP’s signature octagonal bezel also with a vertical satin-brushed finish and eight exposed screws.On the flip-side is a sapphire exhibition case back that allows a view into the inner workings of the mechanical movement. The oscillating weight with a carved out “50” years emblem, will only be featured on the models sold during 2022, which will make them some-what collectibles, as the current production continues on without this distinct characteristic.It comes equipped with two solid push-pieces that activate the chronograph functions, while between them lay protecting crown guards and the screw-in setting crown adorned with the AP logo. All topped by a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating. Water-resistance that can reach up to 50 meters (164 feet).Time is exhibited on a black dial with the signature Audemar Piguet “Grande Tapisserie” pattern dial with 18k rose gold applied hour index markers. While circling around the flange is a printed minutes/seconds track ring.It features three snailed sub-dials: a 12-hour counter at 3 o’clock, a sub-seconds at 6 o’clock, and a 30-minute counter at the 9 o’clock position. There is also a date window placed between the 4 and 5 o’clock spots.On the upper-half of the dial is the long-form "Audemars Piguet" logo in gold. This iconic tri-compax layout continues to be a solid crowd pleaser. The central 18k rose gold hands and hour index markers have all been fitted with a luminescent coating, for an enhanced legibility.
