Audemars Piguet returns with a new take on its most popular model, the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar. Available in four different versions — stainless steel and rose gold with either a navy blue or “Grande Tapisserie” silver dial — the reference 26574 features a larger case than its predecessors (up from 39 mm to 41 mm) so as to make both the dial and its indicators more legible. As per usual, the dial showcases day, date, astronomical moon, month and leap year displays while the 52 weeks of the year have been added in the form of an outer chapter ring and third center-mounted hand. Powering the design is a brand new caliber 5134 movement, which can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back.
The Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Ref. 26574 is now available at Audemars stockists for $95,700 USD in rose gold while the steel version retails for $60,900 USD.
