Audemars Piguet Royal Oak: An Icon of Modern Horology

Current Status

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak remains a towering figure in the luxury watch market, symbolizing the pinnacle of design innovation and horological mastery. Since its debut in 1972, the Royal Oak has challenged conventional aesthetics with its distinctive octagonal bezel, integrated bracelet, and the visible beauty of its movement through a sapphire crystal case-back. Today, it continues to captivate collectors and enthusiasts alike, offering a range of models that embody the fusion of rugged elegance and technical perfection.


The Royal Oak was born out of a time of crisis for the Swiss watch industry, which was grappling with the Quartz Revolution. Audemars Piguet, seeking to redefine the luxury watch, commissioned designer Gerald Genta to create something entirely unprecedented. The result was the Royal Oak, the world's first luxury sports watch made of stainless steel, marketed at a price point previously reserved for precious metal timepieces. Its introduction marked a paradigm shift, cementing Audemars Piguet's status as a leader in watchmaking innovation.

Different Models/Series

Over the years, the Royal Oak has diversified into a wide array of variations, including:

  • Royal Oak Selfwinding: Classic models featuring the iconic "Grande Tapisserie" dial pattern and available in various materials and sizes.
  • Royal Oak Chronograph: Combining the functionality of a chronograph with the timeless design of the Royal Oak, offering precision and elegance.
  • Royal Oak Offshore: A bolder, more rugged iteration of the original design, catering to those seeking a more pronounced statement piece.
