Editor’s Note

Debuted in 1972 during the "quartz crisis" and penned by legendary designer Gerald Genta, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak has gone on to be an enormously influential timepiece. It effortlessly blended haute horology and sportiness, with a steel case, the thinnest self-winding mechanical movement available at the time, and a taste-redefining look. From the diver-inspired octagonal bezel and visible screws and gasket to the tapisserie dial, it was soon adopted by trendsetters worldwide, leading to a lasting legacy. This oversized book details both the technical and cultural details of its rise to prominence in the watchmaking world, accompanied by countless illustrations and photographs.
