12 Month Warranty

This watch is in excellent condition, with light marks and scratches throughout the case appropriate for a watch of this age. There is no guarantee for water resistance on this watch.

This watch defies popular expectations for an Audemars Piguet, eschewing the octagonal case of the Royal Oak for a more traditional round yellow gold case. It also features a dual-time, date and power reserve functionality on a very well-balanced dial.

AUDEMARS PIGUET

Audemars Piguet was founded in Le Brassus in 1875, a rural part of Switzerland. The company became famous for making high complications, with the myriad complicated pocket watches in its museum being testament to its expertise. The company went from strength to strength, producing the world's first skeletonised wristwatch in 1934 and the world's first perpetual calendar wristwatch with a leap year indicator (allowing for user adjustment) in 1955.

By the late 1960s and early 70s, however, the company was beginning to lag behind in terms of innovations. To sidestep the atrophy that would go on to destroy so many other watchmakers, Audemars Piguet decided to do something bold and released the Royal Oak.

Costing 10 times more than a Rolex Submariner did, the watch was unashamedly luxurious. This watch spawned a new genre of watchmaking, and arguably saved not only Audemars Piguet, but the entire watch industry from a slow death.
