To mark the 40th anniversary of the Royal Oak in due style, Audemars Piguet has launched a publication of a 300-page book on the history of this legendary model. A richly illustrated book, it features the 137 year long history of Audemars Piguet and details the life of the iconic model from a historical point as well as through the eyes of various watch aficionados who have come to adore it since its birth in 1972. In her foreword, Jasmine Audemars, President of the Board of Directors, describes that it was “intended as a tribute to its creator Gérald Genta; an expression of gratitude toward all the men and women who have contributed to its success; and the pledge of a fine future”. The book is brimming with appealing anecdotes and personal touches from both past and present, along with historical facts vividly retracing four extraordinary decades in the history of Audemars Piguet and of the watch industry as a whole.
