Audemars Piguet for the last few years has kept their Royal Oak collection manufactured with rose gold.  The new Royal Oak collection is manufactured in yellow gold.  The new product has been highly anticipated in bringing back yellow gold to the forefront of their product barrage.  This collection will include the Perpetual Calendar, Chronograph, Quartz, and the Selfwinding.

Powered by the Audemars Piguet calibre 2385, this three-counter chronograph energises the original Gerald Genta design from the early 70s. The 41 mm case houses a “Grande Tapisserie” dial in either silvery white or in the new paler blue, an angled date display at 4 o’clock, small seconds at 6 o’clock, yellow gold applied hour-markers and Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating.

Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar
The Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar combines yellow gold with the most classic complication in all of watchmaking.  Day, date, month, astronomical moon, with the week of the year displayed on the dial’s outer chapter ring and the essential leap year indication hold pride of place on the “Grande Tapisserie” decorated dial.

The glow of gold in the new Royal Oak Quartz 33 mm edition is accentuated by the glittering 40 brilliant-cut diamonds (0.73 carats) on the bezel, and the “Grande Tapisserie” pattern on the silver or the new blue dial.  Additional signature codes are also in place: 18-carat yellow gold case, yellow gold applied hour-markers and Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating, as well as the stunning exhibition caseback in glare proofed sapphire crystal.

Conceived along the refreshed lines of 2012’s 40th Anniversary model, the new Royal Oak Selfwinding has a 37 mm case in 18-carat yellow gold and a silver-toned or blue dial in finely wrought “Grande Tapisserie”.
