  • Catalogue Essay

    Heavy, luxurious and incredibly sought after, reference 26331OR is the modern day iteration of the cult classic Royal Oak, clad in pink gold livery. While still available at Audemars Piguet boutiques, this model is very sought after and hard to obtain at retail. Housing an automatic chronograph movement, the case boasts a generous 41mm diameter, giving it an impressive presence on the wrist. The classic codes, such as the tapisserie dial and octagonal case are ever present, firmly echoing the Royal Oak's design ethos.

  • Artist Biography

    Audemars Piguet

    Swiss • 1881

    A specialist in the manufacture of complications since it was established in 1881, Audemars Piguet never ceases to impress with a rich history of creating bold, even audacious, timepieces underpinned by traditional watchmaking at its finest. This Le Brassus-based Swiss manufacturer is one of only two major manufacturers still owned by the founding family. Since its earliest days, AP is considered a leader in the field of minute repeaters and grande complication pocket and wristwatches. The brand is devoted to preserving the history of watchmaking in the Vallée de Joux, showcased at their superb museum in Le Brassus.

    Today, the brand is best known for its Royal Oak models, a revolutionary luxury sports watch launched in 1972. Other key models include early minute repeating wristwatches, vintage chronograph wristwatches, such as the oversized reference 5020, perpetual calendar watches and the Royal Oak Offshore, first introduced in 1993.
