  • Catalogue Essay

    No doubt, the demand for green dials is notably rising in favour of other flavours. With that in mind, Audemars Piguet enlivens several members of its Royal Oak family with vibrant green dials in 2021. Along with the three new Flying Tourbillon models (in pink gold, titanium and one with a fitted emerald-set bezel), the most coveted, green-faced variant from this release is, perhaps, the present limited edition yellow gold Royal Oak Chronograph.

    Respecting all the signatures of a quintessential Royal Oak, the ref. 26331BA boasts the iconic octagonal satin-brushed bezel and the integrated bracelet that seamlessly connects with the case, giving this wristwatch its stunning impression of fluidity. Concealed by a solid case back engraved with “Limited Edition”, the present reference is powered by the in-house cal. 2385, following the mechanical cues of the Frédéric Piguet 1185 with an 18k gold oscillating weight.

    Accompanied by an integrated yellow gold bracelet with two additional leather and rubber straps, the current Royal Oak Chronograph is offered in “like-new” condition. Given the soaring craze for the striking combination of yellow gold and vivid green, the opportunity to acquire this limited edition specimen is perhaps as rare as the watch itself. Complete with its original accessories, the present timepiece will be a fine addition to any collection and is sure to invoke the green-eyed monster. 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.
