Making an all black appearance for the first time is the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked.

Le Brassus based Swiss watch manufacturer, Audemars Piguet is proud to unveil a new version of the popular Royak Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked timepiece in an all black avatar. Crafted for the first time in an all black ceramic case and bracelet, the new timepiece features a dial design full of subtle contrasts.

The case and bracelet are hand-finished at the Manufacture and features the brand's trademark alternation of satin-brushing and polishing. Complimenting this is the newly re-designed blackened openworked dial with a pink gold-toned double balance wheel mechanism that is visible from both sides of the watch.

Powered by the automatic Manufacture Calibre 3132 movement with a power reserve of 45 hours, the Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked will be exclusively available in Audemars Piguet’s Boutiques as of December 2020.
