A Peek Inside the Newly Reopened Audemars Piguet Boutique in Singapore Replica At Lowest Price

Regardless of the svelte profile, however, the gold 15202 is a very hefty watch. This tactile illusion is due, of course to the fact that gold density is almost three times that of stainless steel, giving the assertive wrist presence of a far larger sports watch to one which can otherwise slip easily under the cuff of a dress shirt. When you examine the bracelet and case when thinking about the weight of the gold, the slender profile but strong gold appearance gifts a contrasted personality which works well. It is safe, but a modern design icon within an old-school material.From that the dial-side, the look and texture of the 15202 is distinctly timeless — such as a vintage re-issue of this first 5402 in gold. Inside though, beats another story. It’s an ultra-thin automatic motion measuring 3.05mm thick, and characterized by a particular 2.75Hz (19,800 vibrations per hour), although marginally lower-than-average alternance is not easily visible as the 15202 doesn’t feature a running seconds hand. Unlike the 5402 that prompted it, the 15202 gets a sapphire crystal exhibition caseback, through the cal. 2121’s 21-carat gold strand is visible, as it glides back and forth on the round rail conducting the circumference of the movement — one of those tricks allowing the 2121’s signature thinness.In complete, the 15202 will probably be available in three versions — the new gold alternatives (yellow gold onto champagne yellow, or yellow gold on blue) combine the existing stainless steel 15202 that was re-introduced back in 2012. While the stainless steel Extra-Thin Jumbo Royal Oak begins at roughly $22,000, those looking to ‘remain gold’ could expect to part with over double that $55,000 for its 18-carat gold variants.

Audemars Piguet just reopened its flagship boutique in Singapore, now restyled and enlarged, making it the largest such store in the world. We take you on a quick tour of the fresh premises.

Sitting just off Orchard Road, Singapore’s main shopping boulevard, the revamped boutique is over 2000 sq ft, the largest Audemars Piguet boutique in the world. Liberally decorated with oak and stone, the store leans heavily on Audemars Piguet’s hometown of Le Brassus for inspiration. The flagship outpost of the only haute horlogerie watchmaker still owned by the founding families, the new Singapore boutique is fronted with a three-story facade fronted with vertical strips. Made of matte bronze, these are meant to evoke the trees of Le Brassus, which sits high in the mountains of the Vallee de Joux. Despite the imposing height outside, the interior is only two floors, giving both levels expansive space.

An enormous chandelier on the ground level is inspired by the cloud and fog that will be familiar to visitors to Le Brassus.

A watchmaker sits at his bench on the second level, available for simpler tasks like replacing batteries, swapping straps or evaluating a watch for servicing.

The store is fully stocked with Audemars Piguet timepieces, including most of the Royal Oak Concept watches, various limited editions (including the limited edition “Jumbo” 15202 in yellow gold), along with some of the SIHH 2016 new releases. The Audemars Piguet boutique is located at:

541 Orchard Road

Liat Towers #01-03
