The Royal Oak Double Balance wheel Openworked tackles stabilising issues by fixing a second balance wheel and balance-spring assembly on the same axis. The new “Dualbalance” patented geometry involves a very complex manufacturing procedure, but the payoff is huge: greatly improved precision and stability.
This is not only a new world-first, it is also an imposing combination of art and architecture, which is why Audemars Piguet has fully openworked the movement to reveal this two-fold beauty from both sides of the watch.
Available in stainless steel or pink gold, with slate-grey dial and pink gold applied hour-markers, the Royal Oak Double Balance wheel Openworked offers unencumbered viewing through the openworked front and the glareproofed sapphire crystal caseback.
Front or back, the breathtaking views draw the eye repeatedly over the course of a day: sometimes, to register the time indicated by the luminescent hands, but more often just to watch the dance contained within.
