  • Catalogue Essay

    In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the brand’s winning card Royal Oak, Audemars Piguet launched their contemporary concept timepiece with drastic evolution and avant-garde materials with the Royal Oak Concept CW1 in 2002. Taking blue print from the catalyst, the concept lineage flourished into several iterations since its initial breakthrough. Being one of the first manufacture to innovate forged carbon as construction material for timepieces, it is to no one’s surprise to infuse this technology into the Concept model.

    The Royal Oak Concept Carbon CCW1 displays remarkable ingenuity within its angular architectural design and multi-layered structure, allowing the wearer an intimate glimpse of the impressive mechanical marvel. Housed internally is the calibre 2985 tourbillon chronograph with 388 components and offering a roaring 237 hours of power reserve. The CCW1 also features a 30-minute chronograph with a linear display, a dynamograph indication at 12 o’clock which indicates the quality of the torque in the mainspring, and the convenience of a function selector at 6 o’clock— R for remontoir (winding), N for neuter (neutral) and lastly, H for heures (hours). With a handful of ingredients fused into a feature-packed forged carbon case with ceramic bezel and titanium caseback, the watch still wears with incredible lightness and comfort.

    Adding on to the highly attractive piece, the present example is further presented in an absolutely stunning condition with the full set of accessories from the original owner. A bold approach that combines modernity and it’s design roots of the Royal Oak legacy, this is a fantastic opportunity to own one of the rarest and most important Royal Oak of the 21st century.
