When hearing the name Audemars Piguet, thoughts immediately go to the legendary Royal Oak. Iconic as very few other models have been in the history of horology, it is the umpteenth creation of the immortal designer Gerald Genta. Launched at Baselworld in 1972, it represented a real novelty in the Audemars universe as it was the brand’s first true sporting pride. It was the first luxury watch in steel with integrated bracelet in order to offer its customers a precious but at the same time sporty alternative. After 50 years since, the Royal Oak was presented to the world, Audemars Piguet released the new reference 15510ST to commemorate this model keeping the same iconic shape with some upgrade: it comes with the movement named caliber 4302 used in three hands and date timepieces of the current collection and offers 70 hours of power reserve. The case and the immediately recognizable bezel are very impressive with a diameter of 41 mm and a thickness of 10.5 mm and upgrade the original design to contemporary expectations. The dial reminds the original one put on the ref. 5402 with the “Grande Tapisserie” pattern but in grey, white gold applied hour markers, Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating and the AP signature at 12, while at 3 o’clock is located at the date window.
