Audemars Piguet at the SIHH 201
Audemars Piguet will be celebrating 40 years since their first prestige sport watch. As part of that celebration, its famous Royal Oak Chronograph will be designed in a new 41 mm case.
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph 41 mm with its pinnk gold case retains all the key attributes that have made the Royal Oak a truly legendary watch. Like the 1972 model, the latest Royal Oak chronograph features a subtle interplay of alternating satin-brushed and polished surfaces, as well as the eight white gold hexagonal screws on the octagonal bezel.
The black dial of this chronograph features a “Grande Tapisserie” pattern. This motif is crafted by Audemars Piguet using historical machines according to the ramolayé or pounced ornament technique. This rare and unique process that Audemars Piguet is proud to both possess and master, enables simultaneous cutting of squares interspersed with a gridwork pattern of fine grooves.
