Audemars Piguet claims that the design of this new reference comes as close as possible to the original model, which celebrates its 40th birthday this year. Inside the 39mm diameter stainless-steel case is the in-house self-winding calibre 2121, which has a minimum power reserve of around 40 hours. The blue dial bears the familiar “petite tapisserie” pattern with white-gold applied hour markers and luminescent Royal Oak hands. The look of this classic three-hander is completed by the Royal Oak tapered stainless-steel bracelet.
