About Audemars Piguet Royal Oak:

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak is a legend!

Designed by Gerald Genta in the 1970s, both “Audemars Piguet Royal Oak” and “Patek Philippe Nautilus” bear a resemblance to each other. While Patek Philippe is a more diversified brand, Audemars Piguet’s fame and prestige stand and fall with the “Royal Oak Collection”. It’s the “Royal Oak Collection”, and within it – the “Royal Oak Offshore” (which offers the divers watches), that truly has defined the brand since the 1970s. When people take an interest in Audemars Piguet, you can be fairly certain that they refer to the “Royal Oak Collection”.

Characterized by the completely unorthodox octagonal case design dating back to 1972, “Audemars Piguet Royal Oak” is one of the most recognized, desirable and popular collections among the extreme luxury watch brands.

The unique, unusual and highly unorthodox design is quite divisive among watch lovers, in the sense that people either deeply like it or deeply dislike it.

What we can say with complete certainty is that Audemars Piguet Royal Oak has a unique and distinct look, feel, and design to it.

You can never mistake an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, for anything else but an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak!
