Front of Jules Audemars Piguet Extra-thin Bolshoi limited edition 02

The special Jules Audemars Extra-Thin Bolshoi is a limited edition which comes in rose gold. its dial looks so elegant.The case measures 41 mm in diameter and measures only 6.7 mm in height. Usually we would expect such a classic dress watch to be around 36 mm in diameter, maximum 39 mm, but Audemars Piguet choose for a more contemporary size.

The dial of Jules Audemars Extra-Thin Bolshoi looks absolutely fabulous and we actually prefer it over the dials available on the normal Extra-Thin models. Applied hour markers are placed around the edge of the dial and made of white gold or pink gold, of course matching the case. One of those superb details, that can also be found on the Millenary collection, is the rounded mid-case with brushed/satin finish. Front of Jules Audemars Piguet Extra-thin Bolshoi limited edition

The real gem is the extra-thin movement, caliber 2120, which is the same movement used in the vintage Royal Oak ref. 5402 and the Royal Oak P10 Edition. It measures 2.45 mm in height, which is very thin for an automatic movement, especially since it has a full rotor. This rotor is skeletonized and shows the facade of the famous Bolshoi theatre.

If I had the choice, I would get this limited edition if it where only for the beautiful dial. Of course one might expect a limited edition too keep its value, probably better than a non-limited edition.
