Audemars Piguet Royal Oak ChronographFebruary 24, 2021
When Audemars Piguet unveiled the Royal Oak in 1972, luxury timepieces were usually small and made of gold, but the brand broke these rules, forever defying with conventions, with this first luxury sports timepiece honed from steel. Its powerful look ushered in a revolutionary avant-garde style, that has since become its trademark. The new Replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph is presented with a choice of smoked blue, green or grey dials, each incorporating the Manufacture’s “Méga Tapisserie” pattern and new Arabic numerals which supplant the customary applied hour-markers. Each model also includes a black ceramic case and textured rubber strap.
If you’re looking to purchase an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph, you can choose from one of two case sizes: 39 or 41 mm. Both cases are best suited for somewhat smaller wrists. Earlier 39-mm models are listed under the reference number 25860 and cost about 18,300 USD pre-owned.
An extremely flat chronograph with a porthole design – that is the essence of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph. The sporty luxury watch from Audemars Piguet first came to market in 1997 in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the legendary Royal Oak. The relation between the two timepieces is unmistakable:
At 41mm wide the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph is a hefty timepiece made from a lot of high-quality stainless steel. Recall that the “Jumbo” version (as it is often called) of the Royal Oak is just 39mm wide.
