Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Ceramic Skeleton 15416CE.OO.1225CE.01

$450,000
The Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked features a patented innovation aimed to improve the watch’s precision and stability by incorporating two balance wheels and two hairsprings assembled on the same axis so that the system oscillates in synchrony.
 
Not only an engineering feat, the solution is also aesthetically fascinating which is why Audemars Piguet has fully openworked the blackened movement. The pink gold-toned double balance wheel mechanism and applied hour-markers and luminescent hands enhance the ensemble.

Unveiled in 1972, the Royal Oak designed by Gérald Genta has achieved mythical status by defying the tastes of the era to become a hallmark of Audemars Piguet. Utterly captivating and endlessly adaptable, the world's first luxury steel sports watch holds a distinctly modern appeal, from time-only models to the most sophisticated complications. The octagonal bezel, the textured dial, and integrated bracelet define their disruptive history through enduring excellence and mechanical mastery.

Precision and stability are greatly improved by fixing a second balance wheel and balance-spring assembly on the same axis. The new patented geometry involves a very complex manufacturing procedure, made entirely visible though a spectacular slate grey openworked dial.

Selfwinding watch with date display. 41 MM Black ceramic case, slate grey openworked dial, 18-carat pink gold applied hour markers, Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating, Black ceramic bracelet with AP folding clasp. Water resistant to 50 meters.
