Launched in 2012, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak extra thin Tourbillon commemorates the 40th anniversary of the legendary Royal Oak, the first esteemed sports watch and the masterpiece of Gerald Genta. The Royal Oak Tourbillon is a tribute to the original idea governing the collection, particularly a prestigious movement within an ultra-thin case, and also to the first tourbillon wristwatch produced in 1986. 


Impeccably contained within the classic Royal Oak case is the meticulously crafted in-house movement calibre 2924, which only has a thickness of 4.46mm and powers the tourbillon. The movement is entirely decorated by hand and the tourbillon, carriage and bridges are all mirror polished, of which Audemars Piguet is admirably equipped to show off their skills and expertise. With a highly appealing skeletonized dial that showcases the meticulous work of the movement and parts, the watch is crafted with a platinum bracelet of strong proportions and displays lavishing finishes.   


Only made as a limited edition of 40 pieces, the present lot is no. 39 and comes with an Audemars presentation case and warranty. 


A true Audemars Piguet collector’s masterpiece, this sophisticated and impressive timepiece is further fresh to the market.


Sotheby's is very pleased to present it on behalf of an important European collector.
