Following the success of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Double Balance Stainless Steel Skeleton Balance, AP is back with a discreet and sexy version in black ceramic.
Back in 2016, when SIHH launched the stainless steel version, we first set our sights on the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Double Balance Skeleton. Its patented second balance and balance-spring assembly on the same shaft are not only immediately noticeable in a contrasting gold color, but also greatly improve precision and stability.
New Black Ceramic Royal Oak Double Balance Skeleton
Featuring a black ceramic case and bracelet, this new version is meticulously hand-finished with a satin-brushed and polished finish, with the same attention to detail as the brand’s beloved stainless-steel case.
In addition, the newly designed black skeleton dial adds to the charm. The combination of slate grey and rose gold components provides a striking visual contrast. The skeletonized bridges and gear train are rhodium-plated in an icy slate grey, while the double balance-wheel mechanism, hour-markers, hands and rotor are crafted in warm 22-carat rose gold.
Skeletonization itself is both a decoration and a complexity. Archiving too little material from components, the aesthetics will look wrong. However, cut too much and the function of the movement may be affected. A specialty of Audemars Piguet since the 1930s, hollowing out is a balancing act that only the most experienced hands can perform.
Look at this dial with a magnifying glass and everything will be revealed as the polished outer and inner corners catch the light, revealing the endless hours of work that goes into making such a complex movement. replica skull watch

The Royal Oak Double Balance Skeleton is powered by the Calibre 3132 automatic movement with a power reserve of 45 hours, two balance wheels and two balance springs assembled on the same shaft, allowing the system to oscillate in perfect synchronization. The result of this sophisticated mechanism is increased accuracy and stability.
The new “Royal Oak Double Balancer” is engraved on the titanium case back to commemorate this unique patented movement.
Finally, the black ceramic skeletonized Royal Oak balance wheel perfectly combines cutting-edge technology, traditional craftsmanship and modern design, with a 41mm case size, a black ceramic AP folding clasp and a water resistance of 50 meters. cheap replica watches
