Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra-Thin Yellow Gold
When the original Royal Oak first appeared in 1972, it was notable for several reasons - it was the world's first luxury sports watch; it was imposing, yet impressively thin; and, despite being the most expensive watch of its type on the market, it was available only in stainless steel. That changed in 1977 when the first yellow gold 39 mm Royal Oak became available, bringing a whole new character to what would soon be regarded as an iconic design.
In 2016, classic yellow gold returned to Audemars Piguet’s product portfolio and was presented in a select group of Royal Oak models. Today, to mark the 40th anniversary of the first precious metal Royal Oaks, Audemars Piguet has created a new series of Extra-Thin versions in yellow gold.
The blue dial features a lighter shade –similar to the yellow gold models released last year, as it beautifully contrasts with the case and bracelet. Meanwhile, the champagne dial blends with the other yellow gold timepiece, creating a monochromatic aesthetic of beauty and warmth.
Also available with a Yellow-gold toned dial, reference 15202BA.OO.1240BA.02.
