Audemars Piguet: Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar
Audemars Piguet has gone the route of old-school horological luxury, releasing a new version of its Perpetual Calendar in classical yellow gold. The 41mm timepiece features a clear sapphire case back to view a new Caliber 5134 movement (minimal guaranteed power reserve of 40 hours) and screw-locked crown water-resistant to 20 meters. A blue dial complements the yellow gold, featuring the familiar “Grand Tapisserie” subtly raised three-dimensional squares. The calendar displays are on prominent subdials at 9 o’clock (day), 12 o’clock (month and leap-year), and 3 o’clock (date). In addition, an astronomical moon-phase display appears at 6 o’clock and the week of the year is indicated on a numbered 1-52 chapter ring surrounding the dial. The applied hour markers, like the case, are in yellow gold and the hands are treated with luminous coating.
