Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked

Celebration of Openworking

Audemars Piguet’s openworking specialists create a new movement by starting with the end design and working backwards. It’s an art, balancing aesthetics and function. Cut too little, in the wrong place and it looks wrong. Cut too much and the movement’s integrity is compromised. Solving the puzzle demands horological mastery as well as profound knowledge of materials and finishing techniques.

Snow Rainbow

It has all the magic of sunlight refracted through the shimmering 18-carat Frosted Gold case and the bezel featuring 32 baguette-cut “rainbowcoloured” sapphires (2.24 carats), all individually cut.

It’s a breath-taking setting for the rhodium-toned openworked dial and golden double balance wheel mechanism, visible on both sides of the watch. This Audemars Piguet patented innovation involves a complex fabrication procedure that improves the watch’s precision and stability.

Diamond Bezel, Body of Gold

To complement the white gold case and bracelet, the sparkling white gold bezel, set with 32 baguette-cut diamonds (2.85 carats) draws attention to the elegant anthracite openworked dial.
