SIHH 2013 Preview: Audemars Piguet - Grande Complication Royal Oak Offshore Titane Ref. 26571

| No comment
A 3-piece limited edition. This helps to understand the exclusivity of the Audemars Piguet Grande Complication Royal Oak Offshore Titane.

For the first time the Royal Oak Offshore - that was born in 1993 as the ultra-sporty extension of the model designed two decades earlier by Gérald Genta - features a Grande Complication movement. 

In addition to providing a standard time display, this eminently masculine watch 44 mm-diameter makes it possible to perform timekeeping operations and to read off intermediate or “split” times thanks to the addition of a split-second complication. 

The titanium and ceramic case also houses a minute repeater mechanism, a rare complication serving to chime the hours, quarters and minutes on demand. 

Then, the perpetual calendar complication provides a perpetual display of calendar indications, as well as of lunar cycles.

Contemporary finishes such as sandblasting are designed to highlight more traditional treatments such as bevelling or hand-drawn flanks. To reveal the exceptional nature of this model, the parts composing this exceptional art are partially visible through the transparent sapphire dial and by a fitted exhibition back. The latter in particular provides a view of the solid gold oscillating weight featuring a black coating serving to accentuate the overall contemporary touch that the watchmakers have chosen to give this model.

This horological work of art remains a creation made individually and exclusively to order by a single artisan who will devote over 700 hours of patient craftsmanship to every single watch.
