Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openwork

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Double Balance Openworks. This year Audemars Piguet released an extraordinary piece of horology at the 2016 SIHH (Salon International De La Haute Horlogerie Genève), Audemars Piguet Double Balance Openworks. The owner of this piece is from South-East Asia and was the first to own such a novelty piece. He mentioned the watch was such a beauty that he felt he should be the first to own one from his part of the world, and that’s exactly what he did. On receiving this watch, the collector was personally invited to the Audemars Piguet boutique to personally have a coffee...

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Grande Complication

Audemars Piguet Royal Offshore Grande Complication For my first article for 1 of 1 World, I wanted to talk about a watch that speaks volumes about traditional movement architecture and modern-day contemporary aesthetics. Now this isn’t exactly a piece unique, but with only three pieces adorning the wrists of some very lucky (and very wealthy) people, its highly likely that you won’t see one any time soon.
