  • Catalogue Essay

    The present timepiece, featuring a slick, black dial and dazzling diamond-set hour markers, is an incredibly striking example of the Royal Oak series. The present Royal Oak example has a dynamic aura, but a more debonair appeal compared to the sporty Royal Oak Offshore series. The present example is numbered 6, indicating that it was the sixth example of the model produced. Accompanied by a green Audemars Piguet leather fitted presentation box and an Extrait de Registre, it will surely delight watch collectors who appreciate historically significant examples of iconic watches.

    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.
