SIHH 2016: Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked


At the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) 2016, Audemars Piguet presented the Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked.

The Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked tackles the stabilising issues by fixing a second balance wheel and balance-spring assembly on the same axis. The new patented geometry involves a very complex manufacturing procedure, but the payoff is huge: greatly improved precision and stability.
