Audemars Piguet has just released its first-ever Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon in the Royal Oak design. Arriving the three variations — 18-carat pink gold with a smoked grey “Evolutive Tapisserie” dial, titanium with a sandblasted slate grey dial, and stainless steel with a smoked blue “Evolutive Tapisserie” dial — each watch receives the Code 11.59’s Calibre 2950 movement.

Sitting at 41mm in case size, the Royal Oaks see a flying tourbillon with a central rotor at the 6 o’clock position along with details like an open-worked oscillating weight, a “Côtes de Genève”-decorated movement, along with AP’s signature triple-blade folding clasp bracelet.

While this does bear the resemblance of the Royal Oak Extra-Thin (ref. 26522TI), I assure you this is an entirely different animal. While the Yoshida-exclusive does boast a tourbillon in a titanium case, it is not automatic winding and is restricted to just 30 pieces — a lot of watch enthusiasts with deep pockets are going to be dying to get their hands on this for its versatility and complexity.

Currently listed on AP’s website with “Price available upon request,” head over to your nearest flagship to reserve one now.
