AUDEMARS PIGUET HAVE crafted 20 lim­ited edi­tions pieces of their Royal Oak Off­shore Tour­bil­lon Open­worked specif­i­cally for re­tailer Ali Bin Ali. In­tro­duced to re­flect the com­pany’s ded­i­ca­tion to the Mid­dle East and its long-stand­ing re­la­tion­ship with the Qatari re­tailer, the Royal Oak has been crafted in ti­ta­nium and fea­tures a black ce­ramic bezel. Mas­ter­fully skele­tonised en­tirely by hand, the lim­ited edi­tion time­piece comes with a 44mm ti­ta­nium case and a black ce­ramic bezel, push­pieces and screw-locked crown.

The dial is black and open­worked – em­pha­sis­ing the beau­ti­ful hand fin­ished dec­o­ra­tion of the move­ment – and fea­tures black coun­ters, white gold ap­plied hour­mark­ers and Royal Oak hands with lu­mi­nes­cent coat­ing, and a black in­ner bezel.

The grav­ity-de­fy­ing tour­bil­lon, one of Haute Hor­logerie’s most spec­tac­u­lar com­pli­ca­tions, also gets spe­cial at­ten­tion thanks to the open­work­ing, re­sult­ing not only in im­proved per­for­mance and ac­cu­racy, but ex­cep­tional aes­thetic de­sign.

The time­piece is com­ple­mented by a black rub­ber strap with ti­ta­nium pin buckle.
