Pretty skeletonization aside, the “open” view of the movement in this new Best Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked Watch Replica makes sense, as Audemars Piguet is using the decorative technique as a means of showing off the guts of their new in-house made calibre 3132 automatic movement.
The entire point of the 3132 is to increase accuracy, and for this new movement, Audemars Piguet applies a unique concept by producing a double-sided balance wheel structure.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Watch Replica prefers the term “openworked” to “skeletonization” but each means the same thing. There are a lot of openworked watches released from Audemars Piguet this year in 2016, and that is good because the traditional Swiss brand is great at it. Of course, this isn’t the first skeletonized Royal Oak watch to be released – not even close. To see an entirely different style of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak skeletonized watch, see this 2012 Extra Thin Openworked model here.
According to Audemars Piguet, their “Dualbalance” double balance wheel system “greatly improved precision and stability” over more traditional single balance wheel systems.
