"Camélia Flying Tourbillon" Calibre
A beautiful complication that is both mysterious and poetic.
The tourbillon movement is hidden by the camelia. The owner is the only one to know the real value of the watch. This exceptional tourbillon is the product of close collaboration between CHANEL and the Swiss designers, engineers and master watchmakers of Renaud & Papi (APRP SA), the centre of advanced research and development for Audemars Piguet. It represents a "first" for both companies.
