The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon 26730BC.GG.1320BC.01 pairs elements from past AP releases for a novel look. First of all there’s the hand-hammered ‘Frosted’ finish. This was first used on the 2016 15454 in both pink gold as well as white gold. – and since apperaed on a total of 33 AP’s including this new one. Here however, the use of the technique is restricted to the flat part of the bezel. The dial on the other hand is dimpled, much like the 2019 Millenary Philosophique.
