To mark the release of Audemars Piguet‘s Royal Oak Concept Tourbillon Chronograph Openworked Selfwinding, the luxury watchmaker is celebrating the progressive timepiece with a series of videos by creative agency The Pool following daring, creative musical journeys. One film in the series, entitled “Rhymes,” references groundbreaking modern architectural movements throughout history alongside a story that follows a protagonist rapper through a day in his life, as he finds the creative space to write lyrics whilst navigating a beautifully isolated house in the desert.

The Royal Oak Concept Tourbillon Chronograph Openworked Selfwinding is the newest iteration of the self-winding watch model which was first introduced in 2002, combining craft, engineering, and aesthetics. The 44mm sandblasted titanium case features black ceramic pushpieces and sandblasted titanium pushpiece guards. The dial is composed of a black 30-minute counter with white indications, openworked white gold hands  and a black inner bezel with red transfers. The watch features a red or black rubber strap with an Audemars Piguet titanium folding clasp.

Check out the “Rhymes” video in the gallery above, as well as a closer look at the watch on the Audemars Piguet site.

Take a closer look at the watches from the “Breaks” here and “Beast” video on the Audemars Piguet site as well.
