Perceptions of Time

Sleek, powerful, and sophisticated. Those are just a few words one might use to describe Audemars Piguet's 2014 imaging for the Royal Oak concept GMT Tourbillon. Unvieled for the time at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) show in Geneva, this concept fully embraces Audemars dedication to the avant-garde. 

The Royal Oak Concept was first revealed in 2002 as a 30th-anniversary tribute to Audemars Piguet’s legendary octagonal Royal Oak. Where the original Royal Oak was the world's first stainless steel watch, the new Royal Oak Concept continues the Swiss watchmaker's tradition of pushing the boundaries of watchmaking. This time however, they do it with ceramic.

 This year’s concept features a white ceramic bezel, crown and push-pieces. To take things one step further, Audemars has incorporated ceramic into the movement itself, replacing the blackened upper bridge with white ceramic. As a result, the new Calibre  is visually transformed, giving it a remarkable hourglass-shaped bridge, perfectly complimented by the double symmetry of the tourbillon bridges and GMT display. A true marvel of the industry.
