  • Catalogue Essay

    With the present Royal Oak Tourbillon Extra Thin in a flamboyant pink gold livery, Audemars Piguet gives a new meaning to casual chic.

    The Royal Oak has, from its inception in 1972, been a rule breaker. It was the very first “sports” or luxury leisure watch from a haute horlogerie brand. Ten years later it was the first “sports” watch to offer a complication seen until then only in dress watches: a perpetual calendar.

    With the present model, Audemars Piguet merges many elements of its history to create a highly complex piece injected with cool cat attitude.

    The caliber used in this watch is the Audemars Piguet caliber 2924 measuring 31,50mm wide and 4,46mm thick offering a 70h power reserve. This is not only a nod to the automatic caliber 2121 used in the original Royal Oak, which was at the time the thinnest automatic caliber in production, but also to a tourbillon that it had created in the late 1980s that was, at the time, the slimmest of its kind.

    In excellent condition the present watch is a stunning example of the versatility and diversity of the Royal Oak.

  • 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.
