The 37 mm Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked features calibre 3132, first introduced in 2016 in the 41 mm Royal Oak case. It offers a 45-hour power reserve and displays the hours, minutes and centre seconds. By incorporating two balance wheels and two hairsprings that are assembled on the same axis, the system oscillates in pure harmony.

This patented mechanism involves a complex fabrication procedure that improves precision and stability, while allowing the beating heart of the watch to be visible from both sides of the case. The movement is rhodium plated to softly highlight the golden regulating organ and the upper balance bridge. All the finishing operations on the bridges and mainplate - beveling, chamfering, polishing, satin-brushing and circular satin-brushing - are done by hand.
