  • Catalogue Essay

    In celebration of the Royal Oak’s 30th anniversary, Audemars Piguet launched their highly coveted Royal Oak Concept Carbon CCW1 in 2002, captivating collectors with its revolutionary design combined with modern engineering. As one of the pioneers to build watches with forged carbon, it is no surprise that the incredibly light material was chosen to frame this commemorative timepiece.

    Prominently structured in a muscular, faceted form, the Royal Oak Concept Carbon CCW1 shows off a remarkable design with a multi-layered construct, which enables the wearer to admire the mechanical marvel through its dial. The charismatic dial features three key elements through its skeletonised construct: a 30-minute chronograph with a linear display, a dynamograph indication at 12 o’clock that signifies the quality of the torque in the mainspring, and finally, a function selector at 6 o’clock— R for remontoir (winding), N for neuter (neutral) and lastly, H for heures (hours). Powered by the cal. 2985, the sapphire window also exposes a tourbillon chronograph movement that offers an astounding power reserve of 237 hours, comprised of 388 components.

    Audemars Piguet opted for maximum comfort while preserving its staggering presence by encasing the watch in forged carbon, topped with a ceramic bezel and a titanium caseback. Offered in excellent overall condition, the present opportunity to secure one of the rarest and most exclusive iterations of the Royal Oak family should not be dismissed.
