Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15400
One of the most popular AP Swiss replica watches today is the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15400. It is the largest Royal Oak watch ever made with a diameter of 41 mm. The design is the result of the manufacturer’s continuous evolution of the Royal Oak line.
Royal Oak was launched in 1972 and has gone through different design modifications that include 12 models with 39 mm diameter, 12 with 36 mm, and 15 with 33 mm diameter. There was even a model that was rectangular.
The original Royal Oak was designed by the legendary watch designer Gerald Genta, who also worked with Universal Genève, IWC, and Patek Philippe, just to name a few. Throughout his career, he has made iconic watches that include Bulgari Bulgari, IWC Ingenieur, Omega Constellation, and the Patek Philippe Nautilus.
The Royal Oak managed to save Audemars Piguet from uncertainties during the time when the cheaper quartz movement was introduced in the market. It is also the Royal Oak line that established Audermars Piguet as one of the premier watch brands today.
