Royal Oak Frosted Gold Double Balance Wheel Openworked

Audemars Piguet



Immediately recognizable from across a crowded room, Audemars Piguet's Royal Oak is a legendary watch. First designed by the famed Gerald Genta, the watch has enjoyed nearly 50 years of attention since its unveiling in 1972. The newest iteration is created using the ancient Italian jewelry technique of hand-hammering the gold for a unique frosted finish. The 18-karat white gold 37mm case and bracelet are entirely hand finished for a textured sheen that is smooth as silk. The bezel is polished and is set with a rainbow of 32 individually set baguette-cut stones.

Where to buyAudemars Piguet in New York

Born in the abundantly natural landscape of Vallée de Joux, Geneva, Audemars Piguet presents timepieces that are raw in their alignment with nature. Utilizing the earth's space for their ateliers, the farmers occupying Vallée de Joux in the 18th century tirelessly practiced horological craftsmanship to produce some of the most complicated mechanisms ever made. Nurtured through these natural resources, the iron ore found within the ice and rocks of this region is what sustained the evolution of its timepieces and rise to renown.Following the footsteps of its founders, Audemars Piguet continues to practice forward-thinking. Launched in 2019, its Code 11.59 collection ceaselessly impresses through its contemporary, double-curved sapphire crystal face and the shapeshifting illusion of its circular and octagonal blend. The most famous of Audemars Piguet collections, however, is the Royal Oak of which the Flying Tourbillon Extra-thin RD#3 has taken the spotlight. This self-winding watch measures 8.1mm in thickness and features a bidirectional central oscillating weight that celebrates the line's 50th anniversary.
