The Mechanics of AP Skeleton Watches
Like hardly any other manufacturer, Audemars Piguet are masters of the art of skeleton watches. Since the 1970s, this Swiss company from the village of Le Brassus has had its own department dedicated to the manufacture of these spectacular timepieces.
The interior of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak skeleton watch is a delight for horology enthusiasts thanks to its sophisticated complications, and even an untutored eye is sure to be stunned by the filigree workmanship, whether it's the one-sided spring barrel or the winding rotor in gold embossed with the words “AP Royal Oak 1972-2012".
The watch features the "tapestry" motif standard on all Royal Oak dials. The octagonal porthole shape with the distinctive screws has also been retained in the new edition, seamlessly channelling the cult appeal of the original.
