collection Audemars Piguet Royal Oak
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak stands as an iconic timepiece in the world of luxury watches, renowned for its distinctive design and innovative features. Introduced in 1972, the Royal Oak was a revolutionary creation by watch designer Gerald Genta, commissioned by Audemars Piguet to design a watch that would break away from traditional luxury watch designs.
The Royal Oak gained immediate attention for its octagonal bezel with exposed screws, an integrated bracelet, and a bold industrial aesthetic. The use of stainless steel, a material uncommon in luxury watches at the time, further distinguished the Royal Oak as a symbol of avant-garde luxury. The name “Royal Oak” is said to have been inspired by the oak tree at Boscobel House in England, where King Charles II sought refuge during the English Civil War.

The watch’s debut at the Baselworld fair marked a turning point for Audemars Piguet, as the Royal Oak defied conventional norms of luxury watchmaking. Despite initial skepticism, the Royal Oak’s bold design and high-quality craftsmanship eventually garnered widespread acclaim.
Over the years, Audemars Piguet expanded the Royal Oak collection to include various sizes, materials, and complications, including chronographs and perpetual calendars. Limited editions and collaborations with artists and designers have further elevated the Royal Oak’s status as a collector’s item.
