Launched in 1972, the Royal Oak by Audemars Piguet was the first luxury watch to treat stainless steel, and meticulously craft, polish and decorate it, like a precious metal. Since then, this iconic line has been offering exceptional timepieces by incorporating traditional and unconventional materials like platinum, carbon, alacrite, bronze, rubber, ceramic, titanium, tantalum, etc…
Now Audemars Piguet breaks the rules again by returning luxury watchmaking to its most elemental material: yellow gold, the universal emblem of indestructible beauty, energy and light. To be unveiled at SIHH 2016 haute horlogerie exhibition, the new Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar celebrates the timeless allure of yellow gold by combining it with the most classic and romantic complication.
