Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Royal Oak, Audemars Piguet teams up with Assouline to cover the full story.
In the modern-day luxury watch world, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak is recognized as one of the most desirable timepiece models in the industry. While collectors now jump at the opportunity to get their hands on any new or vintage reference, the Royal Oak has not always been perceived as the brand staple that it is today. Telling the tale of its journey to stardom, Assouline is proud to partner with Audemars Piguet on a special edition publication celebrating the Royal Oak’s 50th Anniversary. The luxury publishing house presents ‘Royal Oak: From Iconoclast To Icon’ written by Bill Prince, a 296-page timeline documenting the complete history of the iconic watch and the values that both brands share.
Although the book covers the dramatic rise of the Royal Oak after pushing the boundaries of watch design in 1972, it also features new archival materials uncovered by Audemars Piguet. The layers of informative text are illustrated with imagery from six decades of groundbreaking art, architecture, fashion, music, and cultural history. Prince highlights “Generation Royal Oak” watch connoisseurs with celebrity cameos like Kevin Hart, Bjarke Ingels, Elle Macpherson, Mark Ronson, Serena Williams, and Ning Zetao. Perfect for any watch collector or enthusiast, the all-new Assouline x Audemars Piguet ‘Royal Oak: From Iconoclast To Icon’ book is currently available for $250 by clicking on the link below.
