This movement is comprised of 280 components. The rotor is produced from a single block of 22K gold. Other features include:

  • Stop balance when setting time.
  • Oscillating weight with ceramic ball bearings.
  • Bevels of the bridges are diamond graved.
  • Inverted snailing on bridges.
  • Balance spring with variable inertia blocks.

In Audemar Piguet’s own words:

“This exceptional selfwinding movement combines functionality and precision timekeeping with the highest standard of aesthetics. “
