In line with Audemars Piguet‘s 50th anniversary celebrations of the Royal Oak, the luxury Swiss watch has introduced the new Royal Oak Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon Extra-Thin RD#3, this time with a metallic purple dial in a 37mm steel casing.

The stainless steel watch was first introduced for the 39mm blue dial 26670 back in April, now the new model, 26660ST shows off a unique “plum” dial. The watch features the same 8.1mm thickness as the 39mm RD#3. This new 37mm is also water resistant up to 50 meters. The ultra-thin 3.4mm automatic caliber 2968 ticks at 3 hertz and also features a 50-hour power reserve that can be seen in the visible titanium flying tourbillon. On the back, the watch is finished with a clear display case back, that gives wearers a chance to take a look at the 50th-anniversary rotor design. The minimal AP branding is seen on the clasp as well as on the crown.

While the timepiece is not a limited edition and is slated to retail for $165,400 USD, there will likely be a limited quantity in celebration of 50 years of the Royal Oak. Take a look above and check out Audemars Piguet for more information.

In case you missed it, Patek Philippe has bought a stake in its Swiss gem-setting partner.
