Audemars Piguet watches feature distinctive designs along with considerably sophisticated craftsmanship. It is no wonder the AP watches will sometimes go for upwards of six figures. However, Watch Aficionado has several options that are within the five-figure range, making them less out of reach than you may think. Here are the five AP watches you can consider purchasing if you are new to the world of luxury timepieces.
Royal Oak Self-Winding
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak may seem like a standard luxe watch today, but it was quite the bold timepiece when it was first released in 1972. This is an iconic watch whose design is quite discernible amid a field of other timepieces. The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak is, in fact, the most well-known of all watched by this Swiss watchmaker.
Royal Oak Offshore Diver
Another extraordinary Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch is the Offshore Diver. This is something of an upgrade to the previous Royal Oak timepiece we spoke about. When it was first introduced, it was absolutely shocking, yet it became widely adored. The Offshore Diver has become one of the most popular Offshore watched by Audemars Piguet. The case is truly built with divers in mind, providing water resistance for up to 300m in depth. The featured Mega Tapisserie dial is larger than the Royal Oak Self-Winding watch mentioned earlier, providing greater legibility.
Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph is a newer model in the Royal Oak life that has become incredibly popular. It features a ROO chronograph in a sleep slate gray case that is attached to a hand-stitched hornback alligator bracelet. There are black ceramic pieces that have replaced what used to be rubber accents. There are also brand-new Mega Tapisserie dials that buyers of this watch adore. Snailed subdials add to the textured design as well. Additionally, it is easier to tell time with this updated model, which is obviously a key element of any watch that should be easy to see. As with the Millenary 4101, there is a sapphire display back. However, the crown feature of this timepiece is the chronograph, with its 22K gold winding rotor.
Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph (44mm)
There is a slightly larger version of the previous 42mm watch. If you would like something a little bolder, than the 44mm version is the option for you. There are also a few other distinctions. The Mega Tapisserie features white gold hands. There is also a tachymeter if you should require such a feature. Finally, there are oversized rectangular pushers instead of tiny round pieces that the smaller-cased model had.
