What does bust down AP watch mean?
As you may or may not know, audemars piguet is one of the Big Three in Horology (Rolex being the other). These watches are known for their high-end luxury and intricate design. They offer a number of complications, such as tourbillons, perpetual calendars, moon phase, retrograde, minute repeaters, chronographs, and dual time zone/GMT’s.
The AP Royal Oak is an iconic model and is a must have in every horology collector’s closet. It has been a staple in the industry for years and has been the subject of numerous music videos, including Jay Z’s “Mr. Nice Watch”.
This first series Royal Oak has always been produced with what are referred to as “thin” hands, which correspond to the thickness of the applied lume-filled indexes on the dial. Later on, thicker hands were introduced in the second and third series and used throughout the rest of the 14790’s lifespan.
It’s also worth noting that these first series Royal Oaks were manufactured in a much more traditional fashion, with the bracelet being made by hand and featuring links that were not machined out of steel. As a result, these Royal Oaks are very difficult to come by.
