Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon presents three new Self-winding Flying Tourbillon variants in pink gold or titanium, all of which incorporate green hues.

Upholding Audemars Piguet’s reputation for making high complications, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon showcases the talents of the Manufacture’s craftspeople with three new variants and much hand-finishing in evidence. Each option is presented in a 41mm case and is endowed with a green Tapisserie dial enriched with a sunburst pattern.The first reference comes with an 18-carat pink gold case with matching hour-markers and hands. This model is limited to just 10 pieces. The second model, limited to 50 pieces, is crafted in full titanium. The third model, limited to 15 pieces, combines a titanium case with an 18-carat white gold bezel set with 32 baguette-cut emeralds (~2.41 carats), each individually cut, faceted and set by hand. The emeralds’ verdant hues enhance the green colour of the Tapisserie dial, while offering a unique play of light. Both titanium models incorporate white gold applied hour-makers and Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating and are complemented with a titanium bracelet. All models are equipped with the self-winding Manufacture Calibre 2950, the latest generation of the Audemars Piguet flying tourbillon. Unlike a conventional tourbillon, a flying tourbillon eschews the upper bridge, affording views of the escapement, regulating organ and cage in motion.
Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer Audemars Piguet unveiled its very first Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon Openworked in a 41 mm diameter to celebrate the Royal Oak’s 50th anniversary.

This latest in-house movement builds on Audemars Piguet’s long expertise in both openworking and tourbillon mechanisms, pushing the contemporary aesthetics to new heights.
