Why We Love it

This slim and elegant piece couldn't be any further removed from the bulky brute of the Royal Oak Offshore line that the brand is perhaps most commonly known for amongst today's collectors. Hearkening back to a simpler time, it’s representative of an era in which the maison made so few timepieces per year that many were unique pieces, or part of incredibly limited series.

This particular piece features a 35mm oversized case with a thin profile and softly rounded edges, an eye-catching sunburst champagne dial highlights large 'exploding' printed roman indices and a matching pencil handset, and an excellent signed black alligator leather strap with a matching yellow gold pin buckle.

Oh, and did we mention that it is powered by the very same Calibre 2121 automatic winding movement that found fame in the first series 'Jumbo' Royal Oak?

With its timeless and endlessly appealing looks - combined with extensive pedigree, this is a great opportunity to snag an excellent heirloom quality timepiece from one of the very best in the business!

Overall Condition

The case is in outstanding condition overall showing light even patina throughout and light signs of wear consistent with age and use. Sunburst champagne dial with printed 'Roman' indices is in very good condition showing light degradation around edges with matching handset. Unsigned crown.

Brand Story

+
There are certain watches that define a brand, informing its design ethos and becoming nothing short of iconic in the minds of collectors. For Audemars Piguet, that watch is the Royal Oak, in all its multitudinous incarnations. Yet the manufacture from Le Brassus did not earn its seat in the triumvirate of leading watch brands — the so-called Big Three — on the success of the Royal Oak alone.

In fact, both Jules Audemars and Edward Piguet came from long lines of watchmakers, and made their reputations long before the Royal Oak was conceived. Their reputations rested on their ability to create incredibly elegant timepieces in numerous styles. While some of these timepieces were simple, elegant dress watches, others were one-off or short-series pieces produced at the rate of a handful per year. (Some years, Audemars Piguet only produced a few hundred watches in total.) Calendar watches, chronographs, minute repeaters — all the delights of haute horlogerie were part and parcel of the AP oeuvre long before the Royal Oak made its debut in 1972.

Technical innovations from AP abound and include the first minute-repeating movement, the first skeleton watch and an ultra-thin automatic tourbillon. Newer collections, such as the Code 11.59 from 2019, see the maison continue to develop new and exciting watches and calibers, the likes of which aren’t based upon tired horological tropes from models past. (Though if vintage reissues are your bag, AP does have a special “Remaster” line — currently consisting of just one model — that reimagines some of its classical, complicated pieces from the mid-20th century.)
