The Jules Audemars collection by Audemars Piguet has just received a brand new member in the form of the Audemars Tourbillon Openworked 41mm watch, which was unveiled during the SIHH 2016 event. The first thing that comes to mind when looking at this timepiece for the first time is complexity – a trait that is highly appreciated in the watchmaking world. Indeed, this new Audemars Piguet watch is powered by an automatic tourbillion caliber created by the company’s own experts in Le Brassus, and what’s even more impressive is the fact that the movement can be admired by the wearer at all times.
The traditional Jules Audemars case measures 41mm in diameter, and it was created using 950 platinum. It boasts a hidden crown on its side and comprises the self-winding Manufacture Calibre 2875 that we mentioned before, which comprises no less than 268 components. The movement can be seen through a glare proofed sapphire crystal and caseback. The dial was also made out of sapphire, and it flaunts pink gold applied hour markers and hands as well as translucent anthracite counters that ensure easy readability. The hours and minutes are indicated on the upper subdial, while the power reserve indicator and date indicator are located at 9 and 3 o’clock respectively. At 6 o’clock, the torubillon can be admired in its entire splendor through a clear window.
