Audemars Piguet enlarges Royal Oak self winding collection with new 34 MM models

Audemars Piguet has introduced a new Royal Oak Selfwinding model in 34 mm for the smaller wrists.  Four references in stainless steel and/or 18-carat pink gold complement the Manufacture’s current Royal Oak Selfwinding and Quartz collection.

The two steel models are enhanced by a silver-toned or blue-grey “Grande Tapisserie” dial. The blue-grey watch is adorned with a diamond-set bezel. The new 34 mm line also features an 18-carat pink gold model with diamond-set bezel and silver-toned “Grande Tapisserie” dial.

In addition, a two-tone model has also been featured. It combines a stainless steel case and bracelet with an 18-carat pink gold bezel and bracelet links. This model comes with a silver-toned “Grande Tapisserie” dial.

These references are powered by a new selfwinding movement, calibre 5800, endowed with a dedicated oscillating weight specifically developed for this new 34 mm version.
