Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Tourbillon Concept 25980AI.OO.D003SU.01
The watch was produced in a limited edition of 150 pieces and it took three years to complete all of them. Embodying the iconic Royal Oak shape with an updated futuristic feel, this timepiece features exceptional engineering techniques and audacious aesthetic design. The 44mm case made of Alacrite 602 -an extremely durable cobalt-based alloy that is ultra-lightweight. This is the only model of AP to have used this material, most probably as it was extremely difficult to machine it. The production time of each case was about 30 times longer than a standard stainless steel piece. This reference offers an avant-garde aesthetic with a titanium bezel, over an open-worked hand-wound movement. Crafted on a white rubber strap with folding clasp, it features a glareproofed sapphire-crystal and caseback. The transparent dial is a much appreciated contrast to the overall appearance of the wristwatch. Powered by the 2896 caliber hand-wound movement, functions include hours, minutes, small seconds and tourbillon. Royal Oak is no less than one of the most influential watches of all time. Its progressive design was a blend of a dressy yet sporty, that set the wave of luxury sports watches into motion.
