Description

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked 41mm Black Ceramic Double Balancier Boutique Edition 15416CE.OO.1225CE.01

The openworked dial is a classic showcase of fine movement hand finishing and design. The plates and bridges are cut out and polished along the bevelled edges. Gunmetal or darkened steel makes up 80% of the dial, with a contrasting pink gold balance bridge, barrel and hands. The hour markers are put at the periphery of the dial along with the minute markers, with additional visibility owing to its pink gold lume filled applied indices.

The Double Balance Wheel Openworked concept, is a mechanical innovation introduced to the Royal Oak collection in 2016. It replaced the Royal Oak Openworked Selfwinding calibre 3120 with a fully skeletonized version. The Double Balance Wheel is designed to improve rate stability and by extension accuracy of the movement. Having a double spring increases precision. However, having two hairsprings on one balance is prone to error and maintenance, considering the difficulty to adjust and additional friction on the balance staff. (Moser however, successfully used two hairsprings with one balance.)

Audemars Piguet’s double balance method uses a balance staff carrying one balance and one hairspring on each side. This allows the watch to be regulated from both sides of the movement. Additionally, with an improved weight balance, there is lesser friction and leads to more stability.

The new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked Black Ceramic ref. 15416CE.OO.1225CE.01 is powered by the in-house automatic calibre 3132. Composed of 245 parts and 38 jewels, the movement provides a power reserve of 45 hours while oscillating at a frequency of 21,600 vph. This movement featuring a patented innovation, involves a complex fabrication procedure that improves the watch’s precision and stability. By incorporating two balance wheels and two hairsprings that are assembled on the same axis, the system oscillates in perfect synchrony. The openworked oscillating weight in 22K rose gold is the icing on the cake. A new addition to the Double Balancier line is the especially engraved case back bearing the inscription ‘Royal Oak Double Balancier’ which was not present on any previous iteration of this particular model.
