Forged Carbon + Black Ceramic…
I’m going to try and stay focused on the “big and bad” (sportier/chrono) watches today and then I will switch it up a bit tomorrow to cover some of the dress watches coming out of the SIHH 2011 show in Geneva. Of course you need not wait for my opinion — you can see everything that has been released thus far HERE on our Official SIHH 2011 Forum Feed, but that’s how I am going to proceed for today.
So let’s now take a look at another Audemars Piguet — the limited edition Tourbillon Chronograph, Ref. 26550, with a forged carbon case and black ceramic bezel/crown and pushpieces. The bezel screws are titanium. I love the fusion of these materials!
