  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched in 1972 by Audemars Piguet in collaboration with Gerald Genta, the Royal Oak model has been fitted with a variety of designs, complications and dials.

    More than 40 years after its inception, the Royal Oak continues to enjoy enormous popularity. Audemars Piguet constantly reinvents the classic model, as exemplified by the present watch. Featuring a tourbillon and chronograph function, this watch still retains its traditional look, such as the engine-turned 'tapissiere' dial and iconic bezel that the Royal Oak is best known for.

  • 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.
