The Royal Oak, designed by Gérald Genta, coincided with the tendency for less ostentatious watches as the focus had shifted towards understatement and quality. The Royal Oak was an all-purpose watch that was the perfect fit for different occasions ranging from daily use to formal occasions. Cased in 18k yellow gold, this particularly complicated Royal oak offers the wearer a somewhat more dress appropriate variant of this iconic model.


The perpetual calendar is a complication that has very long ties with Audemars Piguet. Since the 1910s, Audemars Piguet have been producing stylized unique perpetual calendar watches that were highly differentiated from those that were made from other leading Swiss brands. As the popularity of complicated wristwatches increased, in 1955 Audemars Piguet produced the world’s first perpetual calendar wristwatch that would feature a leap year indication.
