Aude­mars Piguet Royal Oak Dou­ble Bal­ance Wheel Open­worked Watches Hands-On

THE MAN Magazine Cambodia - - 360 Watches -

The Aude­mars Piguet Royal Oak Dou­ble Bal­ance Wheel Open­worked watch (de­buted here) was the first time­piece I was drawn to at SIHH 2016. Aude­mars Piguet of­fered a truly dizzy­ing ar­ray of new watches at the show, and of course, their iconic Royal Oak col­lec­tion re­ceived a lot of the at­ten­tion in the form of mostly very high-end new mod­els. One of the very few new Royal Oak watches in steel was nev­er­the­less quite high-end in the Royal Oak Dou­ble Bal­ance Wheel Open­worked - and, of course, it also comes in 18k pink gold. Given the amount of metal in the Royal Oak case and bracelet, the dif­fer­ence in price be­tween the Aude­mars Piguet Royal Oak Dou­ble Bal­ance Wheel Open­worked in steel and in pink gold is cer­tainly not in­con­se­quen­tial, at about $30,000. A Royal Oak with a skele­tonized dial is fur­ther very dif­fer­ent look­ing from a Royal Oak with a more tra­di­tional ”Mega Tapis­serie” dial - so this type of artis­tic dial ex­e­cu­tion makes the en­tire com­po­si­tion of the time­piece feel highly dis­tinct, even for those fa­mil­iar with wear­ing Royal Oak watches.
