£250,000 limited edition watch in stock

This week we’ve been lucky enough to get a limited edition watch worth £1/4 million in stock – with only 100 pieces available worldwide.

And Oscar has shared it in our first unboxing from the new store. It’s an incredibly special piece – a pre-owned Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra-Thin Openworked Tourbillon, often referenced as an AP skeleton.

In immaculate condition and complete with its original deep green box and paperwork, this stainless steel watch is quite stunning.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra-Thin Openworked Tourbillon

This timepiece boasts a 41mm stainless steel case, fixed stainless steel bezel and matching bracelet, but unlike the regular Royal Oak, the case is only 4.46mm thin – half the thickness.

The dial is beautifully skeletonised – a process that involves intricate cutting of metal to create a distinctive look, without affecting the performance of the movement.Every element of filing, decorating and finishing is done by hand by Audemars Piguet watchmakers, preserving the historical methods of creating a skeleton dial.

Powered by the calibre 2924, the timepiece has a manually wound tourbillon movement that beats at 21,600vph, with a power reserve of 70 hours.

A transparent openworked dial offers a great view of the manual-winding movement. The piece is water resistant to 20 metres.

The model originally debuted in platinum at SIHH in 2012 to celebrate the brand’s 40th anniversary. Since then it has been re-released in yellow gold. The version we have here in stock is also available in rose gold although this is limited to 50 pieces.
