The Royal Oak Concept Flying Tourbillon GMT was introduced in conjunction with the 20th anniversary of the Royal Oak Concept collection. This is the newest incarnation of Audemars Piguet’s most bold timepieces.
The Concept line was established in 2002 as a unique initiative to commemorate the Royal Oak’s 30th birthday. Since then, the Concept line has served as the most avant-garde branch of the Royal Oak family tree, producing a small number of similarly daring and definitely tech-forward contemporary Royal Oaks.

The new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Flying Tourbillon GMT ref. 26589IO.OO.D056CA.01 has a completely exposed flying tourbillon at 9 o’clock highlighted by a strong blend of a sandblasted 44 mm titanium case and a green ceramic bezel, the first one in this collection.
The black architectural movement has green CVD inserts that match the colour of the bezel. Meanwhile, the sandblasted titanium case and green ceramic bezel completely transform this magnificent timepiece.
The watch also has green ceramic pushers and a screw-locked crown made of green ceramic.
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Flying Tourbillon GMT Green Ceramic has a water resistance of 100 metres and comes with a textured green rubber strap with a sandblasted titanium AP folding clasp and an extra black rubber strap.
The dial includes a sapphire disc with a second-time zone indicator at 3 o’clock, a crown position indicator at 6 o’clock, and a flying tourbillon at 9 o’clock.
Inside the case, this watch is powered by a manual wound movement, AP Calibre 2954, that was also available on the previous Royal Oak Concept Tourbillon GMT. This movement beats at a frequency of 21,600 vph and has an impressive 10-day power reserve.
It’s a genuinely unique design that modernises the Royal Oak while staying true to both the original Genta design and Audemars Piguet’s long history of complicated watchmaking. Discover the Audemars Piguet timepiece collections online or locate The Time Place boutique near you for a visit.
