Audemars Piguet Openworked Extra-Thin Royal Oak Limited Edition Watch

40th Anniversary of Legendary Model


40th Anniversary of Legendary Model  

As a pre-SIHH 2012 exclusive, Audemars Piaget is presenting a Limited Edition of only 40 pieces for the 40th anniversary of the legendary model Openworked Extra-Thin Royal Oak  first presented in 1972.

The Roal Oak, created by the late Gerald Genta, a designer of consummate importance to the industry as also from his sketchpad came Patek’s Nautilus, Omega’s Constellation and Seamaster models and the IWC Ingenieur, took its name and design inspiration from the British Royal Navy’s Royal Oak war ships and its porthole-shaped bezel with eight hexagonal screws became an instantly recognisable characteristic of the piece.

This 2012 Limited Edition Openworked Extra-Thin Royal Oak reinterprets the original codes and values of the collection, the better to transcend them. The 39 mm diameter of this Openworked Extra-Thin Royal Oak is identical to that of the 1972 Royal Oak. Considered outsized and extravagant at the time of its launch, it shaped the trend for larger watches and now represents a medium-sized diameter.
