Complete with transparent counters at 3 and 9 o’clock showcasing the movement underneath, the watch face thus looks resolutely architectural with its intentionally three-dimensional design.

The latter typically traditional feature is associated here with a flyback chronograph, a decidedly modern function forming the kind of association already explored by the Maison. Audemars Piguet first combined a tourbillon and a chronograph in the same watch in 1999, then again in 2003 within the Royal Oak collection.
