Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Automatic 18K Yellow Gold Watch

Audemars Piguet is an old Swiss brand that has a large production experience. The company was established in 1875 by Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet. In our days, Audemars Piguet is still one the oldest active Swiss watch-making brands that keep the traditions of their founders.

In 2012, there are 40 years after legendary company Audemars Piguet had produced simple sport luxury watch Royal Oak. This first model was released in the stylish steel case and was more expensive than gold Rolex and Patek Philippe. Such grandiose success of Royal Oak, which design was created by master of watchmaking Gerald Genta, gave the birth to the whole class of sport luxury watches that are improbably actual today.

It is interesting to note that until recent time this luxury watch model was equipped with the ultrathin mechanism 2120 that was developed for Audemars Piguet by Jaeger-LeCoultre manufacture. And only seven years ago Audemars Piguet created its own automatic caliber 3120. This automatic movement is manually decorated according to the highest standards of the Audemars Piguet manufacture. The masters of the brand payed especial attention to the rotor that has engravement with the logo of the company.

The very design of the Royal Oak Automatic watch reminds of the first models in the line. The case is executed in the form of octagon. This is a feature of all the Royal Oak wrist watches.  Audemars Piguet decided to save the pattern of Grande Tapissiere on the dial, the form of luminescent hour and minute hands and general form of the gold toned hour indexes. As before, at 12 o’clock the company logo is placed. So this wrist watch is the modern embodiment of the legendary Royal Oak 1972.

The case, bracelet, hands and hour indexes are made of 18K yellow gold. The crown and deployment clasp are made of stainless steel. However it doesn’t spoil the look of this Audemars Piguet Royal Oak. This luxury watch is a perfect union of classics and sport style. By the way, only at our site you may buy this luxury watch model with strongly reduced price.
