WHY WE THINK THIS WATCH IS IMPORTANT
A hand-wound masterpiece, Audemars Piguet's 2017 Royal Oak Tourbillon Chronograph Openworked watch features one of the most desirable attributes in haute horlogerie: a tourbillon. This watchmaking wonder continues to check off premiere attributes, from the 950 platinum case to glareproofed sapphire crystal and caseback. Functionally stunning with both a chronograph and small seconds complications.
As for compelling visual components, the color blue defines the inner bezel, counters and alligator strap. The satin-brushed case and pink gold applied hour-markers and Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating brighten the piece both day and night. This special edition release demonstrates both AP's superb engineering and their bold, colorful styling. The skeletonization of this timepiece is also a marvel in design. Hand finished to perfection, every minuscule detail is endlessly and flawlessly crafted. This particular example is pre-owned from 2107 and comes complete with all accompanying boxes, manuals, and original warranty from Audemars Piguet.
