The earliest ideas for the creation of the Royal Oak watch by Audemars Piguet, stem right back to 1971 when Gerald Genta was elected by company director, Georges Golay. There was a need at the time for a sporty timepiece that would create huge wrist presence with a large bold case design. The timepiece needed to be practical for wearing throughout the day but must also double-up as a sophisticated companion to assist the wearer during evenings of celebration or work commitments.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch was designed in 1972 with an attention-demanding octagonal-shaped case crafted from stainless steel as opposed to the gold and platinum cases often seen throughout manufacture during this time. The extraordinary bezel was and still is, fixed down with eight hexagonal shaped steel screws which give the timepiece a masculine and almost industrial-inspired look on the wrist.
In the design of this Royal Oak watch from Audemars Piguet, we see a grey “tapisserie” patterned dial, adorned with white gold applied baton indexes to represent each hour marker. The date window located at 3 o’clock adds technical appeal to the design, whilst the central hands crafted in true Royal Oak style, are treated with luminescent technology to light up the dial in light-limiting situations, Inside the robust 37mm stainless steel 50 meter water resistant case, the internally fitted Self Winding Manufacture Calibre 3120 ticks away flawlessly. It can be admired in full working motion through the lens of a sapphire crystal glass window on the back of the watch. A stainless steel link bracelet with AP buckle completes this iconic Royal Oak watch perfectly.
