The Royal Oak is undoubtedly the most iconic watch ever produced by Audemars Piguet, and is the result of the studies and projects of the great watchmaker Gerald Genta, also designer of the Patek Philippe Nautilus and of the Cartier Pasha. In addition to the historical origins, this timepiece came and is still produced in various materials, complications and dimensions. The present example is a beautiful, automatic, mid-size model with an 18k pink-gold case in excellent condition integrated with the original bracelet. A sapphire crystal protects the splendid white diamond-set tapisserie decoration dial with hands while a date window opens at 3 o’clock and attracts our attention.
