SIHH 2019: Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Frosted Gold Double Balance Openworked 'Rainbow' ref. 15468BC

Continuing with the release of Frosted Gold watches, Audemars Piguet presents the new Royal Oak Frosted Gold Double Balance Wheel Openworked ‘Rainbow’ reference 15468BC.YG.1259BC.01 with a 37 mm frosted 18K white gold case and a bezel featuring 32 baguette-cut ‘rainbow-coloured’ sapphires —2.24 carats—, all individually cut. It’s a breath-taking setting for the rhodium-toned openworked dial and golden double balance wheel mechanism, visible on both sides of the watch. This Audemars Piguet 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.

This particular Royal Oak ‘Rainbow’ features a 37 mm case that makes it more of a watch properly sized for women rather than men. Powered by the in-house calibre 3132, the movement provides a power reserve of at least 45 hours when fully wound. Live Pictures, more details and pricing to follow as we are reporting live from Geneva, Swtizerland at the SIHH 2019.
