Lot Essay

This stunning and incredibly impressive unique fully diamond-set white gold Royal Oak offers a huge presence both technically and aesthetically. This watch represents the best work of craftsmen with pavé diamond setting on the case comprising approximately 786 diamonds of 14 different diameters with a total weight of around 13.68 carats. The combination of minute repeating, perpetual calendar with phases of the moon, numbers of the week and a split seconds chronograph with register is doubtlessly one of the most ambitious achievements in modern watch engineering.

The Grande Complication is one of the stellar models of AP’s legendary Royal Oak series, epitomizing the luxury sports wristwatch and continuing to captivate watch collectors and aficionados with undiminished power. From its introduction in 1972 to the present day, the Royal Oak model with its unique octagonal porthole bezel and hexagonal white gold screws whose slots form a perfect circle around the bezel struck a chord with watch lovers, and so began a dynasty of timepieces ranging from basic time and date models all the way to the present model, the Royal Oak Grande Complication with more than 600 parts and numerous functions.
