Well, let’s take a look at five of the best Audemars Piguet watches, recognised for their unbeaten aesthetic attributes.

1. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Rose Gold Extra-Thin Ref. 152020R

Adding an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Rose Gold model to a collection is like securing the grail of all grails. The Royal Oak Extra-Thin Ref. 152020R comes with a 39mm case, a blue petite tapisserie dial, and a display case back. However, the dial flaunts a matching deep blue calendar wheel, luminous applied baton hour markers and iconic double baton marker at 12-hour marker.

Interestingly, this Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Blue Dial watch sports an elegant bracelet construction where the parts are arranged in diminishing order. AP graduated them into seven different sizes with alternating links and studs. Moreover, the versatile 39mm case houses the brand’s legendary Calibre 2121 movement. It offers 40 hours of power reserve and a frequency of 19,800vph.

2. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph Ref. 26320OR

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph debuted first nearly 20 years ago. Today, it is available in about twelve references and comes in a bulkier 41mm case size. Nonetheless, this timepiece is yet a fan favourite. AP offers the Royal Oak Chrono in several precious metal options. However, the 18ct pink gold edition of Reference 26320OR takes things to a higher level. It sports a solid gold case and an exquisite brown alligator strap.

The watch flaunts a well-balanced, clean silver Grande Tapisserie dial. And it serves as a perfect base for the 18ct pink gold hands and matching applied baton hour markers. However, the three sub-dials flaunt flat borders and snailed centres. An alligator strap completes the sophisticated look of this Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph timepiece. Moreover, it is powered by the in-house Calibre 2385.

And its one-of-its-kind design features two balance wheels sitting parallel to one another and interconnected through a central component.

The skeleton bridges and plates display exquisite finishing with chamfered edges, dressage, mirror polish screw holes and more. Moreover, the dial is a blend of contrasting colours. For example, the bridges and hands come in pink gold; whereas, the double balance wheel is yellow gold.

4. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver

This Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore is an automatic watch that AP initially designed for divers. People typically categorise the Royal Oak Offshore as fairly pricey Audemars Piguet watches. However, this particular model has outstanding features like a rotating inner diver scale bezel.

The watch is water-resistant to 300m, thanks to the tightly screwed stainless steel case and robust sapphire crystal.

The Royal Oak Concept GMT Flying Tourbillon is the first flying tourbillon timepiece within the brand’s catalogue that packs another movement powering the Royal Oak Concept Flying Tourbillon for ladies. The watch features the sand-blasted titanium central bridges on the dial side with gold-toned, polished facets. Interestingly, you can see the glimpse of the Calibre 2954 via the openings between the multiple indications.

However, the dial features a disc at the 3 o’clock side that indicates the second time zone. The watch also has a crown guard incorporating the pusher at the 4 o’clock side. It advances the disc of the second time zone that shows 12 hours by an hour.
