Royal Oak Concept GMT Tourbillon

The “Royal Oak Concepts” holds a very special place in the delicate world of horology, symbolizing cutting edge technology, without the spare of any expenses. The first RO Concept was released back in 2002 as a 30th-anniversary tribute to Audemars Piguet’s legendary octagonal Royal Oak.
The third and latest Royal Oak Concept features a titanium case with a white ceramic bezel, crown and push pieces instead of black, all heightening the contrast with the titanium case middle. However, Audemars Piguet has now gone one step further and incorporated ceramic into the movement itself, replacing the blackened upper bridge of Calibre 2913 with white ceramic. White ceramic is apparently nine times stronger than steel!
