Despite the fact that Audemars Piguet has been spending a great deal of its effort building out the Code 11.59 collection, the Royal Oak will always be the brand’s flagship model. For many people, Audemars Piguet is the Royal Oak, and while the brand certainly has the desire to make sure that it does not become entirely synonymous with a singular design, you can virtually guarantee that there will never be a single year that passes in which we won’t see some type of new Royal Oak watch.replica audemars piguet That said, having an iconic design can sometimes be a bit of a double-edged sword, as changing it too much runs the risk of making it lose the very same traits that define it as an icon.
As a result of this, nearly all Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watches have (more or less) offered the same core design since the early 1970s, with their dials, materials, case sizes, and complications being the only real tangible differentiating factors. As part of the brand’s latest batch of new releases, Audemars Piguet has unveiled a new version of the 37mm Royal Oak that is crafted entirely from yellow gold and fitted with a natural turquoise stone dial.
To call the new 37mm yellow gold Audemars Piguet Royal Oak (ref. 15550BA.OO. 1356BA.01) a new model is a bit of an exaggeration, as it is essentially the exact same watch as the existing 37mm version of the time-and-date Royal Oak Selfwinding, just crafted from a different metal and fitted with a new dial. Just like its siblings, the case measures 37mm in diameter by 8.9mm-thick, and it offers the classic design of the Royal Oak with its integrated lugs, octagonal bezel, and eight exposed screws.
Similarly, both the front and back sides of the case are fitted with flat sapphire crystals, while a signed crown at 3 o’clock offers access to the movement and helps to create 50 meters of water resistance. In terms of its overall aesthetics, the new yellow gold 37mm Royal Oak is about as classic and traditional as can be. However,replica watches uk the key detail here is that this new model is crafted from 18k yellow gold (rather than rose gold), and this is something that had been previously missing from the 37mm-wide Royal Oak lineup since 2019.
