Being an iconic symbol of the Audemars Piguet timepiece lineage, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak collection is a unique reconciliation of quality construction with design. It is one of the most stunning wrist watches with its first model launched around 40 years back.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak: A Classic Timepiece
The first collection of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak was introduced in the year 1972 in the Basel fair when it captured the gaze of the watchmaking industry. Designed by Gerald Genta, the first model in the Royal Oak series was a stainless steel watch with a flawless craftsmanship and wonderful design.
Like the old models, the bold and sporty look of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak is supported by a bracelet in the wrist watch. The bold look of the bracelet stands parallel to the classic and elegant design of the dial.
Royal Oak Collection: Experimenting with Style
The sophistication and class in watchmaking art is redefined with the introduction of the Open Worked Self Winding Royal Oak carrying a contemporary style statement. The watch is housed with a Calibre 3129 movement in the open working self winding movement breaking the lines with the traditional patterns.
The timepiece in the Royal Oak collection has been embellished with contemporary fashion making it stand apart from the traditional lineage pattern. The evolution of the high end Calibre 3129 movement is stemmed from the Audemars Piguet Calibre 3120 self winding mechanical movement. The in house movement is designed and manufactured by the Audemars Piguet.
With the timepiece available in two versions: a steel case with a steel bracelet and the other version with an 18K Pink Gold embedded on an alligator designed leather strap, the Open Worked Self Winding Royal Oak has displayed a mastery in the skeleton movement. The timepiece demonstrates a perfect exhibition of stylish art bridging the contemporary and the classic elements.
There are a very few watchmaking brands excelling in the art of skeletonisation in the watch world. The resolute beauty of the art is visible in this Royal Oak timepiece with a unique stylish appearance. The precision and accuracy in the timepiece is achieved with the skeleton movement while the artistic zeal is preserved with the stylish look of the watch.
The Open Worked Self Winding Royal Oak carries the essences of the long lived Audemars Piguet tradition of achieving high standards in the skeleton movements. The elegant finishing of the timepiece is further elaborated with the shiny case and the bezel.
