Audemars Piguet “Royal Oak RD#2”
PERPETUAL CALENDAR ULTRA-THIN
THIN, THINNER, THINNEST: THE LATEST RECORD BREAKER FROM AUDEMARS PIGUET. THE 12 O’CLOCK MOON PHASE OF THE NEW ULTRA- THIN PROTOTYPE PAYS HOMAGE TO THE COMPANY’S FIRST PERPETUAL CALENDAR WRISTWATCH THAT CAME OUT IN 1955
REINVENTING THE CALENDAR WATCH
Complications and ultra-thin models: two time-honoured Audemars Piguet specialties meet in the Royal Oak RD#2. It has taken ve years to develop the new ultra-thin 5133 calibre with perpetual calendar.
The challenge has been to re-engineer a three-storey movement into a single level, making it ultra-thin while combining and re-arranging functions to boost ergonomy, ef ciency and robustness. This patented system features a record- shattering 2.89 mm central rotor. At just 6.30 mm, the redesigned case shaves almost 2 mm off the Royal Oak Extra-Thin Jumbo, making the Royal Oak RD#2 the thinnest selfwinding perpetual calendar on the market today.
This is the latest chapter in Audemars Piguet’s quest for world rsts which goes back over a century.
