Back in 2016, the Double Balance Wheel Openworked hit the market. It featured an entirely new caliber and a hand-finished, openworked double balance wheel mechanism. The Audemars Piguet Replica was first released in a 41mm case that was either stainless steel or rose gold, and now the hand-finished caliber 3132 is available in a white gold case measuring 37mm. But that’s not it.
As usual, Audemars Piguet Best Swiss Watches is introducing a lot of new products. While doing something new with an existing movement isn’t exactly groundbreaking, it is awesome that a major brand such as AP wants to offer such a cool movement in different sizes. This size the sweet spot for many of us, and while Frosted might not be your thing, it’s all about choices.
I think this is fantastic. A Frosted Gold watch with the double balance wheel openworked movement? Sign. Me. Up. Much like the AAA Audemars Piguet Replica Van Cleef and Arpels Planétarium and Romain Gauthier Insight MicropRotor Lady, this is up there as a cool ladies’ timepiece that is both beautiful and technically intriguing.
