Description

In the annals of watchmaking, few names evoke reverence quite like Audemars Piguet. The mention instantly conjures images of the legendary Royal Oak, an emblem of craftsmanship, precision, and luxury. Spawned from the visionary prowess of the incomparable designer, Gerald Genta, the Royal Oak isn’t just a watch—it’s a statement. Since its grand unveiling at Baselworld in 1972, it has solidified its status as not just an innovation in the Audemars collection, but a cornerstone in the horological world.

We present to you a pristine specimen from the 1990s, the Royal Oak Reference 56346ST. It perfectly epitomizes the quintessence of the Royal Oak lineage. The iconic octagonal bezel, held firmly with eight meticulous screws and adorned with 32 glistening diamonds, radiates an air of opulence. The robust stainless steel bracelet speaks of durability while echoing the grace of the timepiece. It’s not just a watch—it’s a work of art.

What sets this piece apart is its spectacular preservation. A testament to its past owner’s care, the bracelet and case are untouched by time, devoid of any evident wear. Nestled beneath the protective embrace of the flat sapphire crystal lies a dial that can only be described as sublime. The profound blue of the lapis lazuli, punctuated by diamond hour markers, is a sight to behold. Gold hands sweep elegantly across, pointing to hours and minutes, and the date window at 3.

Powering this horological marvel is a quartz movement, Caliber 2612, its authenticity reaffirmed by the deep engraving on its back. This 1994 Royal Oak isn’t just a timekeeper; it’s a piece of history. With its dial, case, and movement all signed, and accompanied by an Extract from the Archives, this is a treasure for connoisseurs and collectors alike. The Royal Oak Reference 56346ST is more than just a watch—it’s a legacy.

 

 

Audemars Piguet – bio

Audemars Piguet is a Swiss manufacturer of mechanical watches founded in 1875. They began in the Vallée de Joux. Jules Louis Audemars formed a partnership with Edward Auguste Piguet. Audemars created complicated blank watch movements for other manufactures to use. Piguet specialized in the final regulation of watches. They then split responsibilities when they began their own company. Audemars was in charge of production and technical aspects while Piguet focused on sales and management. One of their first achievements was creating the first repeater wristwatch in 1892 and in 1972 the iconic steel “Royal Oak”.
