Luxury watchmaker Audemars Piguet has debuted its newest timepiece, the Royal Oak Tourbillon Chronograph Openworked Material Good.
The Swiss marque’s new take on their classic timepiece is a more elaborate interpretation of a watch that, in the past, has competed with the likes of the Rolex Submariner and Omega Speedmaster. The new design is thanks in part to the input of Material Good, a NYC retailer who has partnered with the watchmaker.
Royal Oak’s trademark feature is the beautiful openwork movement complete with a tourbillon and chronograph complication. The addition of the hand-wound caliber 2936 movement with a 72-hour power reserve guarantees quality performance; a wide-open view is available via the sapphire crystal caseback.
The skeletonized creation boasts a 2-counter 30-minute chronograph movement featuring a tourbillon at 6:00. Audemars Piguet’s striking internal design continues outside with a 44mm case in either rose gold or titanium from Gerald Genta design.
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Tourbillon Chronograph Openworked Material Good watch is available in titanium at $261,000, and in pink gold at $297,000.
