  • Catalogue Essay

    In honour of the Royal Oak’s 50th anniversary this year, Audemars Piguet launched a new range of Royal Oak Chronograph wristwatches. Seventeen new iterations were slowly released throughout 2022, offering 38mm and 41mm sizes, an array of different colourways, and blinding diamond-set variants.

    Adhering strongly to the genetic codes of its predecessors, the present Royal Oak Chronograph 41 flaunts an iconic blue Grande Tapisserie dial topped with an inconspicuous date window at 4 o'clock and applied lumed hour markers. Encased in stainless steel, the bracelet's and octagonal bezel's finishes are also retained. Minor adjustments, however, do make a significant impact. The latest version of this model is updated with a reshuffled layout of the chronograph dial, layered with a muted white gold signature near 12 o’clock. Furthermore, the 50th Anniversary edition is closed with a sapphire case-back that invites the wearer to admire the new and improved in-house cal. AP 4401 and its 22K white gold “50 Years” rotor. The distinct oscillating rotor will only be included in watches produced in 2022, after which they will revert to the ordinary form.

    Offered in “like-new” condition, the present Royal Oak Chronograph 41 is complete with its certificate and original accessories. This opportunity to be a part of Audemars Piguet’s momentous milestone is not to be missed. All proceeds exceeding the cost for the consignor will be donated to charities supporting access to medical care for families in need and orphanages.

  • 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.
