From 1881 Audemars Piguet never ceases to impress with a rich history of creating bold, even audacious, timepieces underpinned by traditional watchmaking at its finest. From 1972 it has mainly been known for Royal Oak models, a totally revolutionary luxury sports watch but some other precious and incredible creations followed. We are very honored to be able to offer you a unique and never on the market reference 14954BC.SS.8034BC.01 totally inspired by the Royal Oak model. This very watch is superb in every single aspect: first of all has been manufactured in pure 18k white gold with a solid bracelet of the same material. Each link of the bracelet is tied together by two square sapphires that recalls the decoration of the outstanding bezel. The octagonal ring equipped on this snap on the back case is absolutely unique and never seen before on an Audemars creation and is composed of 40 sapphire with rectangular cut and further embellished by 8 brilliant cut diamonds at each angle of the bezel. As if it wasn’t enough, the dial is a further hymn to opulence with a pavè set of diamonds with 8 brilliant cut sapphires and 3 with baguette cut. The watch is also sold with its Certificate of Origin confirming its production on 19h August 1996. This is a unique opportunity to purchase an astonishing creation from one of the most renowned brands and absolutely exceptional for preciousness and quality.
