The sandwich case has polished and brushed finishing on its inner and outer layers. It features curved lugs, sides, the dial’s bevelled and polished edge and a brushed reverse side.
The watch flaunts different geometric shapes combined in its construction. For instance –

The dial’s typography represents the classic artistry for which Audemars Piguet is coveted. The brand’s logo, located at the 12-hour position, is made of a chemical process called Galvanic growth. Here, the artisans use several thin layers of gold to develop what looks similar to a 3-D logo printed in solid gold.
An exclusive double glare-proofed sapphire crystal covers the dial, ensuring increased clarity and legibility. The sapphire crystal is curved with a particular profile shape for offering a novel optical experience that integrates light and depth.
The transparent case-back exhibits a polished finish on the angle encircling the chamfered edged. Moreover, the case-back has a flat profile and a brushed finish and features screw holes.
