Audemars Piguet is one of the biggest names in the field of luxury watch-making and while many different AP models have existed over the years, a select few lines have been able to maintain strong popularity as new releases emerge and as technology continues to advance. One of the very best examples of this is the Royal Oak collection.

In this article, we take a much closer look at the Royal Oak line, exploring its history, while also taking a more in-depth look at model updates throughout the years and the most popular watches in the collection’s history.

Brief History of the AP Royal Oak Watch

Audemars Piguet History Baselworld 15300 15400 15500

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak collection was introduced in 1972 at the Swiss Watch Show, which would later become known as Baselworld. It was released against a backdrop of rising concern among Swiss luxury watch manufacturers about ‘Quartz’ technology, and is widely recognized as the world’s first luxury sports watch.

Defining characteristics of the Royal Oak included a hexagonal bezel and exposed screw heads, with the overall design taking inspiration from traditional diving helmets. The first model introduced was the Royal Oak Ref. 5402ST, which featured a 39mm case, measuring just 7mm in thickness and this helped to provide the sports watch with the sense of sophistication and luxury that, until that point, had been reserved for luxury dress watches.

This model also introduced the self-winding Caliber 2121 movement, which delivered excellent precision, shock resistance and full integration with the timepiece’s date display function. In the years since, models have introduced a variety of new complications, including perpetual calendar and moon phase indicator options.

Rolex Audemars Piguet Patek Philippe Skyhigh Prices Costs Bubble

Anyone with an interest in luxury watches, such as those produced by Rolex, Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe, knows to expect to have to pay high prices for the top brands. However, one of the noticeable trends throughout 2020 and 2021 has been a rapid increase in prices, even above what you might typically anticipate.

Therefore, if you are getting into the watch market yourself in 2021 or 2022, or looking to purchase a luxury timepiece for a friend or loved one, you are likely to have plenty of questions regarding the prices you see. Why are these watches so expensive? Why are watches selling way above retail price? Should you try to buy on the grey market?

In this article, we explore the answers to these questions and more, and outline what is behind prices skyrocketing.

The Issue of Supply and Demand

One of the reasons why luxury watches are typically so expensive is because the supply of many timepieces does not come close to matching the demand. In other words, there are more people who want to buy luxury watches than there are luxury watches on sale. This can lead to situations where customers enter Rolex retailers to see very few watches to no watches on sale and it is common to find that you are unable to actually purchase a watch you may have seen on their website.

And we wanna put them side by side so that you can do it from home and decide, do I wanna go with black or do I wanna go with blue?

Blue dial or Black Dial?

Roled Two Tone Submariner Blue Dial Bezel Comparison

Now I’m gonna give you some hints from my personal taste on this. Because I’ve seen more than 10,000 watches and most people, in general, when they’re picking up the two-tone Submariner, they’re looking for the blue one. The blue one you see on the right. And that’s because blue, it’s more of a special color than the black one and it’s specific to just the two-tone and the white gold. Whereas black, you see here, it can look similar to both the stainless and the yellow gold.

Differences in text:
