Catalogue Note

Over the years as the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak became increasingly successful, the brand began to fully exploit the potential of the model with the use of precious metals such as gold. This model, engraved Royal Oak II, No. 1 on the outside case back, indicates the first ever Royal Oak for ladies in yellow gold, ref. 8638BA. As this was the second Audemars Piguet Royal Oak model ever made, it is marked with Royal Oak II.
