Jeff Kingston visits the Grand Complication Workshop of Audemars Piguet in Le Brassus where the Grand Complications are assembled. He shows us different stages of assembly of the Royal Oak Offshore Grand Complication that debuted at the SIHH in Geneva in 2013. We will get to see different elements and how they come together, such as parts of the Perpetual Calendar, dials, hands and the casing up, the final stage of construction for this Grand Complication. The guide Mark Schmidt leads us through the process of the building of the Royal Oak Offshore Grand Complication, starting with the way the parts arrive into this Grand Complication room.
