    Introduced in 1972, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak has become, throughout the years, one of the most recognizable and iconic timepieces in the watch industry. Designed by Gerald Genta, the creator of many signature designs for various watch manufactures, the Royal Oak collection takes its inspiration from British Royal Navy battleships, themselves christened for the tree where King Charles II hid from his enemies. Originally created in stainless steel, the octagonal shaped bezel secured by eight visible screws have gone through many variations while retaining its distinctive allure and quality, This strong identity has captivated trend setters and collectors since its creation, making it today a must-have for contemporary watch lovers.
