When Haute Horlogerie Meets Haute Joaillerie

1 min read

This year, Audemars Piguet launched the Royal Oak Concept Flying Tourbillon GMT in the Middle East. The new watch generation is an update of its predecessor, with the addition of the flying tourbillon and dial animations

The black ceramic bezel provides a contemporary frame to a resolutely high-tech dial design with redesigned bridges, a flying tourbillon at 9 o’clock, a GTM or second timezone function at 3 o’clock and an asymmetric look. It is a powerful mix of sandblasted titanium and black ceramic with contrasting pink gold-toned inserts for a new multifaceted architecture.
