Audemars Piguet: phantome beauty
The tourbillon, one of the most impressive watchmaking complications, fascinates the eye with the smooth rotation. Looking at the beauty of its movement, assembled from almost a hundred small parts with a total weight of less than 1 gram, you can easily forget about its primary purpose: to improve the accuracy of the watch, compensating for escapement deviation caused by terrestrial attraction.
Audemars Piguet has more than 140 years of experience in the design, manufacture and industrial production of watches with sophisticated functions, and the tourbillon is one of them.
It take over 50 hours of work  to carry out skeletonization & decoration of the unique transparent chronograph Royal Oak Offshore with a tourbillon. 15 internal corners are hand-finished, as the craftsman should harmonize the beauty of the visible parts & their technical perfection.
Bezel and titanium case, processed by sandblasting, sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, titanium bezel, hands of white gold with luminescent coating - this watch is perfect.
The model, released in only 50 copies, is available in Audemars Piguet boutique in GUM.
