Audemars Piguet has just unveiled new precious stone-encrusted Royal Oak Concept Flying Tourbillon watches.
Part of a series of six, these new models feature white or pink gold 38.5mm cases that have been hand-set with colorful gemstones and diamonds. The open-worked watch is powered by a 225-part hand-wound manufacture caliber 2951 which has a 77-hour power reserve, flying tourbillon, and power reserve indicator.
The different versions range from brilliant to baguette-cut stones in the form of graded blue sapphires, rubies, diamonds, tsavorites, emeralds, topaz, tanzanites, and amethysts — as many as 468 brilliant or 208 baguette-cut graded gems are set into the watch depending on the model.
There’s no word on availability but you can expect the retail price to be around the $200,000 USD mark. Head over to Audemars Piguet to view the collection.
