Audemars Piguet is no stranger to the realm of premium, high-profile watches. Every year, the brand reveals its next big ideation within the world of luxurious design, adapting its wristwear to take on yet another lavish material, technology, or movement. This year, however, the Swiss outfit is introducing its first-ever Royal Oak Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon.

Since the Royal Oak is an established member of the Audemars Piguet family, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why it’s been chosen to receive the aesthetically-pleasing upgrade. Paired with the latest generation of its self-winding movement, this unique example affords wearers the opportunity to witness the watch’s regulating components in motion, thanks to its hand-finished tourbillon cage. On its rear, the Royal Oak adopts a number of decorative accents, including a “Côtes de Genève” inlay, hand-polished chamfers, and an open-worked, oscillating weight for those who revel in horology’s more intricate workings. Sadly, no release date (or price) has been revealed for the dynamic example, which will arrive in stainless steel, titanium, or 18-carat pink gold housing.
