It’s 50 years since Gérald Genta’s designs for Audemars Piguet were introduced and this is one of latest and most highly sought-after versions of horology’s sporting design classic – The 41mm Royal Oak. The steel bracelet with iconic folding clasp is still there, but a new movement – the 4302 with 70 hours Power Reserve – combines with subtle design changes to the indexes and date window to create an even greater icon.
With its instantly recognisable octagonal shape, the latest ‘Oak’ makes a great statement not only in any sporting environment but also in every kind of formal situation.
