After the success of the black ceramic Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar, Audemars Piguet brings back the heat this time with the intense blackness of this limited edition of 100 pieces of the Royal Oak Tourbillon Extra-Thin. An incredibly sexy watch in person, the black ceramic is satin-finished and polished just like any metal Royal Oak. Cased in a generous 41 mm case, this time the Tourbillon Extra-Thin featured a sunburst pattern on the dial radiating all the way from the cage of the tourbillon to the perimeter on what is called the “Tapisserie Evolutive” pattern. The new Royal Oak Tourbillon Extra-Thin Black Ceramic ref. 26522CE.OO.1225CE.01 features a matching black ceramic bracelet.
The dial with white gold applied hour-markers and Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating, leaves little to the imagination with its opening at 6 o’clock revealing the delicately finished 60-seconds tourbillon in all glory. Exceptionally finished and worth every penny of its price tag.
The Royal Oak Tourbillon Extra-Thin Black Ceramic is powered by the in-house movement calibre 2924, this time finished with a dark grey galvanic treatment and a completely new decoration pattern with côtes rayonantes instead of the usual côtes de Genève.
