Audemars Piguet’s “Royal Oak” celebrates its 50th anniversary
Written by Bill Prince, cultural journalist and former deputy editor of a British magazine GQ, this book offers a journey through six decades of innovation in the fields of art, architecture, fashion, music and cultural history, drawing a parallel with the evolution of this watch that we no longer present. He returns in detail to his history, discovers new archives and transcribes the exclusive testimonies of friends of the house. With his lyrics, he revives the culture shock he created Royal Oak when it was very controversially launched in 1972. With its hand-finished stainless steel case housing the smallest automatic mechanical movement of the time, it elegantly redirected the codes of the sports watch. The book looks back at the rise of this iconoclast who became an icon among the most valued models of fine watchmaking. Something to delight fans hours and especially fromAudemars Piguet !
