Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Black Panther: Fun Or Fail? (Video)
Can a serious watch manufacture get away with producing such a “gimmicky” timepiece as the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Black Panther?
Serious and gimmicky are not mutually exclusive, but they were posed as two different questions in the same breath by Marc André Deschoux of The Watches TV in a video taking a look at the first timepiece to emerge from the collaborative energy between Audemars Piguet and Marvel Studios.
Deschoux was pretty diplomatic in the way he didn’t mince words but the watch world hasn’t been quite as diplomatic, divided as it is since the Royal Oak Concept Black Panther appeared during Watches and Wonders 2021 (though not as part of the digital fair).
I’ll leave it up to you to judge whether such a traditional timepiece maker could or should make watches like this; after all, the consumers will decide with their money on it, not the critics.
Enjoy the video, which also includes footage of the green-dialed Audemars Piguet platinum Royal Oak Jumbo that came out at the same time, and decide for yourself.
