At the first glance you might be misled into thinking that it is a jewelry piece for its showy outlook, yet it turns out that there are no shiny stones on any part of it. It might be more exactly to be called a technical piece, for it requires a lot of complex work in the manufacturing process. The consummate craftsmanship employed in the cutting and shaping of the mineral crystal contributes to the exclusivity and innate value of the Audemars Piguet Rutilated Crystal Inline Tourbillon. As is known to many watch connoisseurs that traditional machining techniques would smash the crystal and make the blank useless if they are utilized in cutting and forming the raw crystal blank. Employing innovative machining technology from another area, Audemars Piguet worked joint hearted with experts at Renaud and Papi to use abrasive liquid suspension on mineral crystal. Though it is a sheer difficulty since it takes as long as an hour to only abrade 1mm, it yields extraordinary accuracy, reaching 1/100ths of a millimeter. A delicate, rare and exceptional platinum and rutilated quartz rectangular skeletonized tourbillon wristwatch with box, the splendid watch pays special homage to one of the manufacturer’s creators and embodies the quintessential handicraft in the watchmaking industry. It is rare that such a high precision landmark piece is also wearable. The large elegantly curved rectangular case in platinum features two godroons to its main plate, adding a sense of divine and understated Art Deco sophistication. Other versions such as quartz, meterorite, or any mineral crystal with inclusions are also available for your choice.  Heirs to a never ceasing legacy, Audemars Piguet has been dedicated to manufacturing top notch masterpiece one after another basing on dauntless and audacious design as well as incomparable technical prowess.
