Introducing: The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Tourbillon Extra-Thin Openworked, Now In Yellow Gold
As you may know, Audemars Piguet is known for their openworked watches and the lot of craftsmanship that goes into each piece is unfathomable. The first skeletonized AP was made around 1921 (a pocket watch with skeletonized dial) and the first skeletonized Royal Oak was made in 1986 (1993 for the first skeletonized ladies’ Royal Oak), so they have had a lot of time to consummate the technique.
Just like the first Extra-Thin Tourbillon Openworked, the type 2924 development (which was fresh out of the box new back in 2012, commending 40 years of Royal Oak) is utilized in the new yellow-gold piece. This development has more than 100 cleaned points, everything is hand-completed, and it includes a 70-hour power hold. A similar vertical format is utilized for the tourbillon and similar record dim and yellow-gold pieces are utilized. The case is 41 mm in measurement and the development (31.5 mm in distance across) is 4.46 mm thick.
This watch was and still is extraordinary compared to other watching skeletonized tourbillons out there, and is valued at $241,300.
