Ode to black: IWC Replica, Black Ceramic

IWC Replica

We are able to look at this unlikely piece today, after two years of hard work. This is a testimony to the manufacturer's commitment to creating a Royal Oak that would break all the rules in terms of manufacturing and design. It's evident that Audemars Piguet was able to create a beautiful all-black piece of timekeeping equipment based on the enthusiastic response from watch-loving people to its debut.

This edition required the rework of the first screws on the Royal Oak bracelet. These screws are usually located below the surface of the bracelet's sides.

Audemars Piguet's artisans determined that the watch's Goldilocks ratio (or "just right") was 90percent absorbtion of visible light and 10percent reflection.

600 hours of research and development were required to get the 41mm matte black case just right. It has a perfect balance of polished and brushed surfaces and is extremely sturdy.
