When launched in 1972, Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak redefined “cool.” Its first version made entirely of black ceramic achieves a similar effect 45 years later. Applied to the proportions originally determined by the master, Gérald Genta, this new object of desire becomes a natural choice for the King of Cool.
Its brushed and polished surfaces, in both case and bracelet, take five times longer to produce than with steel. If this were not enough, the eternal spirit of the ref. 5134 perpetual calendar caliber makes it a veritable time machine that looks both counter-cultural and classically elegant at the same time. Anytime. Anyplace.
