Royal Oak Series Double Balance Skeleton Watch

In 2016, Audemars Piguet brought a touch of color to the development of fine watchmaking with its breakthrough thinking, independent spirit and superb skills. Audemars Piguet’s unique innovative thinking is perfectly reflected in a series of designs that break through the tradition of watchmaking.

   In the movement of a mechanical watch, its adjustment mechanism can be seen: the indispensable combination of a balance wheel and a hairspring. This adjusting device entered the watch industry in the 17th century, and its regular swing determined the accuracy of the watch.
   This is a clearly visible process-the swing of the balance wheel will cause the hairspring to coil. When the balance wheel reaches the maximum swing, the hairspring will stretch out and then complete the complex energy transfer: each complete swing completes the escapement Primary gear meshing to ensure precise alignment of the drivetrain and gear rotation.

   Ensuring accuracy and durability has always been one of the biggest challenges in watchmaking. Unlike wall clocks driven by pendulums, watches need to overcome the effects of gravity, irregular movements during wearing, and temperature differences and vibrations on travel time.
Sublimation of hollowing technique

The Royal Oak series double balance skeleton skeleton watch fixes the second balance wheel and hairspring on the same axis to improve the accuracy and durability of the movement. This patented double balance device requires sophisticated and complicated production procedures to complete, and can greatly improve the accuracy and durability of the watch.

   The Royal Oak series double balance skeletonized watch not only has complicated patented technology, the completely skeletonized movement shows the beauty of artistic design and architecture on both sides.

Hollow decoration, that is to show the inherent beauty of the mechanical movement by cutting away excess material. This is a traditional technique with extremely strict requirements for accuracy. The slightest difference may cause the movement error of the movement or affect the shockproof effect. A perfect balance between presenting the inherent beauty of a mechanical movement and guaranteeing accuracy is undoubtedly a rare art.

   As early as the 1930s, Audemars Piguet has mastered the traditional process of hollowing out decoration, and completely completes the cutting and decorative polishing processes by hand to meet the strict requirements of design aesthetics and fine watchmaking. Although the milling machine can partly polish the movement, it cannot complete the internal corner polishing that represents the advanced watchmaking process.

Royal Oak series double balance skeleton skeleton watches are available in stainless steel or rose gold. With dark gray dial and rose gold hour markers, the wearer can view the skeleton movement through the dial surface and anti-glare sapphire crystal caseback. Inner Beauty: Beyond reading time, feel the passing of the day, taste the beauty of mechanical movement.
