The name of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replica Watches and the unique octagonal bezel of the watch are the honor of a series of eight Royal Navy ships in the UK. The names of these ships are taken from an ancient hollow oak tree, nicknamed the Royal Oak, which King Charles II hid while avoiding Round Head in the Battle of Worcester in 1651. Knowing this story will make this watch more charming! The name of the Royal Oak is not the only nautical nod. The original stainless steel design was inspired by old-fashioned metal diving helmets with exposed screws, a slightly bulky appearance from this period, and a unique case that was certified as a 150-foot-depth exposed waterproof gasket to reveal its origin. The original Royal Oak design in 1972 used blue small pastry design patterns with a comfortable streamline integrated bracelet instead of a leather strap. The original Royal Oak movement used the automatic 2121 movement. The movement is based on the Audemars Piguet 2120 movement, which is still used in the Royal Oak Jumbo (No. 15202).
The original Royal Oak watch was priced at 3,300 Swiss francs (more expensive than a Patek Philippe gold watch, ten times the price of a Rolex Submariner in 1972), which is the best high-level watchmaker! At that time, Royal Oak ref. 5402 is considered very revolutionary. In fact, many critics want to know whether this design will stand the test of time. It turns out that the Royal Oak is one of Audemars Piguet’s most iconic designs-and one of the most famous Audemars Piguet Replica watches in the world. As time passed, Audemars Piguet introduced Royal Oak watches in different finishes, and the ladies Royal Oak models also caused a sensation when they were first offered. Different options, such as date function, chronometer, perpetual calendar, moon phase and so on. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Royal Oak, designer Emmanuel Gueit was hired to create some new products: The Royal Oak Offshore. This watch was launched in 1993 and uses a 42mm case instead of the traditional 39mm case. Gerald Genta didn't like the new design at all, but it was very successful and still sought after.
