One of the first stainless steel luxury watches, the Royal Oak has served an honest legacy for Audemars Piguet since its inception in the 1970s. Gerald Genta gave birth to the Royal Oak's design which remains a classic for almost 50 years. The present mid-sized example is preserved in excellent condition, showcasing its trademark tapisserie pattern and octagonal bezel, making it perfect to wear for all occasions.
