The Basics

Introduced in 2012, the Royal Oak Ultra Thin Tourbillon pairs the classic Royal Oak aesthetics with a hand-wound movement with tourbillon escapement. It is the first Royal Oak with no additional complications to be fitted with such a highly-valued escapement – earlier versions like the 1997 limited, the 1999 Tradition d’Excellence and the later Chrono Tourbillon and Concept watches all featured additional functions. The present model features a platinum case and matching bracelet and was added to the collection in 2016. It features a fumé grey dial. Its bezel is set with 32 baguette-cut diamonds.
