This complicated watch combines a two-tone case, interweaving 18-carat white and pink gold, with a three-dimensional architectural movement.
The 18-carat pink gold middle case contrasts with the multifaceted lugs, extra-thin bezel and round caseback, all crafted in 18-carat white gold. This blend of white and pink gold highlights the watch’s detailed geometry and refined hand-finishing techniques, offering an interesting canvas of expression to Audemars Piguet’s craftspeople. The 18-carat white gold crown and chronograph pushpieces inserted within the pink gold octagonal middle case further the watch’s elegant superposition of varied tones and shapes.
The transparent chronograph counters and the flying tourbillon cage at 6 o’clock also reveal part of the watch’s complex mechanism ticking within. This is the case of the pink gold-toned balance wheel visible through the flying tourbillon aperture, which subtly matches with the 18-carat pink gold hands and intricate middle case.
