INTRODUCING: An Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph to celebrate The Hour Glass' 40th anniversary

It's a truism to say that the watch industry loves an anniversary, and while mostly it's the watch brands doing the celebrating, this time it is a retailer celebrating the big 4-0. Boy, are they celebrating in style.  The Hour Glass is one of the major retail figures in the Asia-Pacific region, with more than 40 boutiques (including three in Australia). The first of these boutiques opened in Singapore back in 1979. The brand is celebrating their 40th anniversary by…

OPINION: 3 stress relief ideas if the new Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 collection is causing you discomfort

Feelings. We all have them. They make us human. They make us who we are. But sometimes they can get the better of us. Like, remember when Tudor released the Black Bay chronograph? Boy, that seemed controversial at the time. And then there was the new Rolex Air-King. Holy smokes!

Or maybe the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak. Brought to life by Gérald Genta, when he famously sketched the design for the "unprecedented steel watch" on the eve…

HANDS-ON: The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked

One of the finest openworked watches on the market right now (and one that, paradoxically, didn't make our list of skeletonised watches) is the Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked from Audemars Piguet. Visually, this pink gold case with predominantly steel movement architecture is everything you'd expect — that classic RO case and bracelet looking boss, with a deep, complex openworked dial. And while legibility is the main concern here (there's not a heap of contrast between the movement and…

INTRODUCING: The Audemars Piguet Ladies' Royal Oak turns 40 in style

OK, we're calling it: 1976 was one of the best years in history – for so many reasons. For a start, that's when Stevie Wonder's Songs in the Key of Life was released. It was also the year Rocky and Taxi Driver hit cinemas, and superhotties Benedict Cumberbatch and Audrey Tatou entered the world. In conclusion: a very good year. Audemars Piguet would agree. It was 1976 when they unveiled the brand new ladies' Royal Oak (four years after the…
