  • Catalogue Essay

    Since its inception in 1972 the Royal Oak has gone from being the very first steel leisure/sports watch from a haute horlogerie brand to a design language and a laboratory of ideas and creativity.

    With its definitive contemporary appearance with ruthenium plated skeletonized movement the Royal Oak Double Balance – launched in 2016 – takes a very innovative approach to chronometry and precision by presenting a world first: a movement featuring two superimposed balance wheels, each with its own hairspring. This enables greater inertia and more stable timekeeping.

    Adding extra flair to an already breathtaking, watch Audemars Piguet has uses a pink gold balance bridge which creates a bold contrast with the slate grey of the movement.

    The present watch was purchased in 2022 and remains unworn.

  • 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.
