Audemars Piguet has had a busy 2022. From releasing its line-up of 10 rainbow-inspired Royal Oak models to celebrating the Royal Oak’s 50th Anniversary, this third of the Holy Trinity is setting the bar high.
In the last couple of months, they also quietly dropped two new Royal Oak Perpetual Calendars and a Royal Oak Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon. The new models showcase modern features and luxurious updates, without disrupting the continuity of the Royal Oak bloodline.
“The alliance of innovation and tradition”
AP takes an uncompromising approach to craftsmanship - and has done since originating in Le Brassus in 1875. Throughout its lifespan, Audemars Piguet has produced some of the most complicated mechanisms ever seen. Today, it blends rich tradition with forward-thinking, as it continues to win awards and be worn on the wrists of celebrities including Jay-Z, Serena Williams and LeBron James.
The Royal Oak is a modern icon defined by a steel case, octagonal bezel, Tapisserie dial and integrated bracelet. It’s an example of the brand’s rare expertise and it belongs in any good timepiece collection.
The new Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar
The Perpetual Calendar is home to the most classic complication in watchmaking. The latest iteration stays true to that, but this time we’re treated to a white gold case and matching bracelet. The Grande Tapisserie dial has a rich, vivid purple hue, with Royal Oak hands that have a luminescent coating.
The Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar in all-blue
“Entirely dressed in blue” is the introduction this model received in its recent unveiling. It’s another Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar, (reference 26579CS) - only this time its case and bracelet are completely crafted in blue ceramic. A first-ever for AP, the matching blue Grande Tapisserie dial and subdials reflect the serenity of a starlit sky.
The new Royal Oak Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon
The brand-new Flying Tourbillon (reference 26730BC) is a luxurious progression. It’s a 41mm 18-carat white gold model, with a bezel that’s paved with 32 baguette-cut diamonds. It has a grey Grande Tapisserie dial adding to a sleek, monochromatic look, with a glare-proofed sapphire crystal and case back.
Naturally elegant and decidedly modern, this piece has hour markers crafted from white gold and Royal Oak hands made with a luminescent coating.
