Aside the black and white versions, this AP Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar makes its mark as yet another incredible work of art.
With generations of innovative brands working at engineering the future of watchmaking, the industry continues to incorporate new ideas, designs, and materials to assist with the challenge. Although the use of precious metals like gold and platinum differentiate themselves from everyday stainless steel examples, full ceramic variations are becoming more popular for industry-leading watchmakers. The luxury horologists at Audemar Piguet introduced its first all ceramic Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar in 2017, which came in stunning black and white versions. Five years later, AP is back to unveil the new Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar in a vibrant blue finish during Geneva Watch Days. Considering that the past models still increase in value and demand, this new example from Audemars Piguet is sure to be one of the hottest watch releases of the year.

The Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar features a robust 41mm case made from blue ceramic, with Audemars Piguet’s notorious octagonal fixed bezel and contrasting titanium screws. A Grande Trapisserie pattern dial takes on the same monochrome finish, incorporating white gold hour makers and hands. Supplying power to the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar is Audemar Piguet’s in-house Caliber 5134 self-winding movement, which operates its perpetual calendar, week indication, day, date, astronomical moon, month, leap year, hour, and minute functions. Set with a powerful 40-hour power reserve, the inner workings of the movement is displayed beautifully through a clear sapphire backcase. The most noticeable characteristic of the new Royal Oak is the matching blue ceramic bracelet and folding clasp, which forever encapsulates it as another magnificent piece of history from Audemars Piguet. The new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Blue Ceramic is currently available through an authorized dealer with price upon request.
