Developed during the quartz crisis which strongly hit the Swiss watch industry in the late 1960s and beginning of the 1970s, the Royal Oak revolutionised the industry and created a new category: « Stainless Steel Sports watches » . The novelty, 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 dinners.  

Inspired by the look of a diving-suit helmet, the monoblock case along with the octagonal bezel and integrated bracelet create an aesthetically appealing design that makes this watch such an emblematic model which is sought after by collectors everywhere.
