Thin, thinner, thinnest: the latest record breaker from Audemars Piguet
The 12 o’clock moon phase of the new ultrathin prototype pays homage to the company’s. First perpetual calendar wristwatch that came out in 1955.

REINVENTING THE CALENDAR WATCH
Complications and ultra-thin models: two time-honoured Audemars Piguet specialties meet in the Royal Oak RD#2. It has taken five years to develop the new ultra-thin 5133 calibre with perpetual calendar.
The challenge has been to re-engineer a three-storey movement into a single level, making it ultra-thin while combining and re-arranging functions to boost ergonomy, efficiency and robustness. This patented system features a recordshattering 2.89 mm central rotor. At just 6.30 mm, the redesigned case shaves almost 2 mm off the Royal Oak Extra-Thin Jumbo, making the Royal Oak RD#2 the thinnest selfwinding perpetual calendar on the market today. This is the latest chapter in Audemars Piguet’s quest for world firsts which goes back over a century.
