  • Catalogue Essay

    Whereas it took Audemars Piguet 10 years after the launch of the Royal Oak to present its first complication in the iconic model range, the perpetual calendar in 1982, it took the brand an extra 15 years to present the Royal Oak chronograph in 1997.

    The present chronograph from 2010 is a rare, extremely charismatic, example in pink gold, silver tapisserie dial with a bezel delicately set with brilliant cut diamonds. In fact, to the best of our research it is the first time this reference appears in an international auction room.

    In excellent overall condition and delivered with its full set of accessories the present Royal Oak is flamboyant, sleek and extremely attractive.

  • 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.
