Royal Oak Automatic Openwork

The strength of a tradition lies as much in its richness as in its ability to reinvent itself. With the presentation of the new Royal Oak Automatique Skeleton, Audemars Piguet is providing a dazzling demonstration of this. While the exercise of the skeleton movement is a blend of art and age-old tradition, the Manufacture in Le Brassus is proposing a contemporary rewriting of it that goes against the grain of classic skeletons. A way of asserting both its absolute mastery of this art and its creativity.

A mastered creativity

Resolutely contemporary, the Royal Oak Automatique skeleton model from Audemars Piguet draws its strength from a genuine alliance of tradition and modernity. A unique exercise in style, the art of skeletonisation remains the prerogative of a handful of watchmaking Manufactures. This very special art requires both technical and artistic know-how. Technical because skeletonizing a movement means taking care to preserve its structure in order to maintain its precision and reliability. Artistic, because this openwork of the components is accompanied by extremely meticulous decoration work, the execution of which requires skill and experience. Audemars Piguet has long been recognised for the exceptional quality of its skeletonised movements. The Manufacture in Le Brassus has indeed distinguished itself on many occasions in this delicate exercise. The new Royal Oak Automatique Skeleton is therefore in keeping with this logic, even though this calibre has been produced in a very different spirit. This resolutely modern skeleton is in line with a stylistic evolution, more architectural, more contemporary. The top-of-the-range finishes, with their sober execution and drawn lines, are reminiscent of the surface treatment of the case and the satin finish of the bezel.

A reinvented skeleton movement

The origin of this Royal Oak Automatique Skeleton is a simple observation: this exercise in high-flying watchmaking had to be reinvented with boldness and creativity in order to reach a new clientele. With this in mind, the work carried out by Audemars Piguet in developing the new Calibre 3129 that equips the Royal Oak Automatique Skeleton has clearly taken a break with the past: pure and contemporary lines for a creation that goes against the grain of traditional skeleton models, capable of enhancing the Royal Oak collection for which it was intended. The final result is a sober and refined cut, a straight satin finish on the plate and bridges, and an intensification of the colours, contrast and nuances thanks to the bevelling work carried out entirely by hand. The colour palette ranges from grey to anthracite. This last colour, as sober as it is elegant, is obtained thanks to an anthracite galvanic surface treatment. These dominant shades of grey contrast with the colour of the gilded brass wheels and the solid 22-carat gold oscillating weight, which is also skeletonised and stamped with the ap monogram. This new all-grey automatic calibre 3129 is also particularly highlighted by the case in which it is housed: in addition to a transparent case back, this 39 mm-diameter case, which is water-resistant to 50 metres, features an entirely openworked anthracite dial with applied facetted gold hour markers.

A movement base of exceptional quality

While the calibre 3129 is a high-flying skeletonised movement, it also owes its character to the quality and reliability of the basic movement from which it is derived, the Audemars Piguet calibre 3120. This mechanical self-winding movement was entirely designed, developed and produced by the Manufacture Audemars Piguet. Its great reliability and the constant improvements that it incorporates make it a transversal element in all the collections, from the classic Jules Audemars to the sportier Royal Oak. Among the technical features of the Calibre 3129 and its 253 components displaying the hours, minutes and centre seconds, the most noteworthy are its through balance bridge, which ensures exceptional resistance to shocks, and its direct-drive centre seconds hand, which prevents any overlapping. As for the adjustment, it is particularly stable over time thanks to the use of a variable inertia balance equipped with 8 weights. Lastly, in terms of comfort, the Calibre 3129 has a stop-second function to facilitate setting the time, as well as a 60-hour power reserve.
