The model number for this watch is 26320OR.OO.D002CR.01. But of course we'll have a link to this watch in the description below. So before we start we'll be doing that unboxing, reviewing of the case. I'll show you how to adjust the time. We'll also go over the strap and I'll show you where you can find this watch for the lowest possible price. So when buying this watch you can expect the watch to come in this large AP box along with booklets of information located underneath the outer box. One is the instruction booklet of the Chronograph and the second one is the certificate of guarantee or the warranty. So let's move on and review the case now. So the case size is 41 millimeters in diameter. The thickness of the case is 10.8 millimeters and has a nice low profile as you can see there. So this will fit under a suit cuff very nicely, very easily, it won't get caught. The bezel is of a rose gold octagonal shape with a high polish around the sides as you can see it's very much more reflective. It gives it a nice shine around the edges. And the dial color is black and it has that nice square pattern and that's what Audemars Piguet calls the grand patissier pattern. The dial also contains white index markers. White index markers and hands are fashioned in 18 karat rose gold to prevent any tarnishing. Additionally, there are three subdials each track a different measurement of time. As you can see here on the left we have a 12-hour cycle, the 12, three, and six, nine are indicated there. The bottom subdial tracks a 60-second cycle as the 60, 15, 30, and 45 seconds are labeled there. And on the right we have the 30-minute cycle which has a 10, 20, and 30 label there. And between the four and five o'clock position we have the date right there and I'll show you how to adjust that as we move on to the crown. So let's review the crown now. The crown is located here at the three o'clock position and it is currently in wearing position, meaning that the crown is screwed in against the case and is ready to wear. Rotating it out counterclockwise will unscrew the crown and pop it out to the hand winding position. During the hand winding position the watch can now be manually wound 20 to 30 times clockwise as you see here. Any more and it might damage the watch. With a light tug of the crown we'll set it to the date position in which you can adjust the date very quickly as you can see between the four and five o'clock position the date just easily swaps as I go clockwise. There's a click every time I swap to each date. Very useful than having to do two revolutions of the hand around the dial to switch the day only once. With a final tug this will set the watch to the hand setting position which you will be allowed to set the hands bidirectionally and along with that that will stop the seconds in the subdial down here once pulled out fully. And you can go ahead and screw that back in. Always make sure to screw this crown back in nice and snug against the case as it keeps this watch water resistance up to 50 meters or 330 feet, okay? So now you're probably wondering why isn't the main second hands moving? Well this is because this watch is a chronograph which is a fancy way of saying a stopwatch or a timer. So basically the top chronopusher located here at the two o'clock position you just have to unscrew it counterclockwise and it pops it out and what that does is it actually starts the second hand's movement, as you can see it go now. And you're probably wondering well what the purpose of this? Well, when you press it in again it will stop the movement and the purpose of the chronograph is, well some back history, the chronograph was invented to track the lap times during horse races so you could start the timer when a horse starts its lap and you can also stop the timer when it finishes its lap for accurate time tracking as the subdials on the left and right here will move over one tick. Obviously, once this makes one revolution it'll make a minute tick down here and once those two revolutions the subdial, the left sudial will make one tick for the hour. 'Cause this tracks 30 minutes and that will track an hour and this whole dial will track one minute. So once you stop the timer, rather once you stop the second hands from moving it allows the bottom chronograph pusher located here at the four o'clock position, it allows it to reset the hands back to the start as shown there. See the hand moves back. I can demonstrate that one more time. So the hand moves and you stop it at the five minute mark or five seconds mark and bam, resets. That'll reset the main seconds hand here and the two subdials on the left and right back to the 12 o'clock position as well. Once again, always make sure these are nice and screwed down back against the crown. And another thing to mention is the timer cannot be reset once it is moving. So you have to stop it before you can reset it. Okay, so let's move on to the back of the case now. So the back of the case has the Royal Oak model name shown in the middle there. You can see very shiny, very reflective, and it's finished off with that satin finish bordering around it and additionally it has the high polish around the bezel as well as you can see there. Kind of very similar to the front of the case which has that satin finish on the bezel with that high polish around the sides as well. The movement of this watch has Audemars Piguet's in house movement called a self-winding caliber 2385 movement. It is a movement with a 40-hour power reserve and it's made up of 37 jewels and 304 parts that all synchronize together to allow the chronograph function and the adjustment of the date, as you saw earlier, to adjust the date very quickly and very easily. So let's go ahead and review the strap now. So the strap is a black alligator leather strap. It's very simple, very durable and the strap tapers from the case down as you can see is a little bit thicker as it gets closer to the case as it goes down into a smaller taper and this actually keeps that nice, it keeps that nice curvature shape against the wrist and it also has Audemars Piguet's name embossed onto the inner portion of the strap right here. Very cool, very beautiful strap. The buckle is Audemars Piguet's 18 karat rose gold buckle it has the name Audemars Piguet indicated there as well. It works a little bit differently. It actually has the little portion actually punches into one of the holes and sits on top of one of the clasp blade. This single clasp blade is actually a very unique design because it actually helps keep that curvature shape, keeps the curvature shape of the strap when you wear it so it's very nice, very nice to have. So let me go ahead and show you this watch on my wrist now. Okay, so here's that watch on the wrist. Look at that, it's very beautiful. Look at that high polish on the side of the bezel. It's very, very nice. Very reflective. The dial is also very beautiful. It has that black really contrasts with that 19 karat rose gold and it just really pops. Oh and overall, look at that, even the profile, very low. It will fit under suit cuffs, once again as I mentioned. Will fit under suit cuffs very well and just an overall very classy, very nice watch. That really isn't too busy of a face. So if you have any questions about this watch please leave a comment below.
