Audemars Piguet Flying Tourbillon Openworked iN Sand Gold

Although the iconic "Royal Oak" first made its appearance in stainless steel, Audemars Piguet has progressively introduced gold variations, firmly establishing them within the collection with many standing out as their most popular models. Now they've unveiled their very first timepiece crafted in a new proprietary alloy designated “sand gold”. This novel 18-carat gold alloy, which occupies a unique niche between white and pink gold, exhibits a captivating ability to alter its hue based on the viewing angle and lighting conditions.The 41mm case with a 10.6mm height is made in a new novel 18k sand gold alloy with a mix of vertical brushed flat surfaces and polished edges. This so-called “sand gold” consists of a mic of solid gold with copper and palladium. Mounted to the case is the iconic “Royal Oak” octagonal shaped bezel in a matching alloy and exposed 18k white gold screws. On the flip-side is a sapphire exhibition case back, which allows a view into the inner workings of the mechanical movement. The matching sand gold oscillating weight also appears in an open-worked fashion with the “AP” logo.It also comes equipped with a screw-down crown adorned with the AP logo. All topped by a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating. Water-resistance can reach up to 50 meters (164 feet).Time is exhibited on a fully skeletonized dial with an openworked movement, detailed by small applied contrasting white gold hour index markers, followed by black printed minute track, circling around the sloped flange. The caliber 2972 which debuted on a Royal Oak during the 50th anniversary celebrations once again appears  completely exposed, and can be further examined via the exhibition caseback. Shifting our attention to the forefront, we're greeted with a stunning display of numerous purple jewels and active gears, complemented by the rhodium-toned openwork of the bridges and mainplate.

Furthermore, each element is meticulously crafted to meet the high standards of fine watchmaking, featuring satin finishes, circular and sunray brushing, along with polished bevels.
Positioned at the 6 o'clock mark, the flying tourbillon catches the eye with its central rotor and gleaming jewels. Distinguished from a traditional tourbillon by its single lower bridge support, the flying tourbillon offers an unobstructed view of the mesmerizing whirlwind mechanism from the front due to this unique support structure.In this version, the open-worked architecture leaves no room for a 3D printed logo. As a result, the 'Audemars Piguet' brand name has been intricately engraved onto the sapphire crystal on the upper half. Additionally, the central gold hands and hour markers are infused with a luminescent material, ensuring the watch face remains easily readable under varying light conditions.
