This Ultra-Rare Bauhaus Brutalist AP Royal Oak Watch Could Be Yours

Aug 2, 2021

Category: Style

Despite how expensive they are (starting in the tens of thousands, even heavily used), Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak watch is still one of the most sought-after watches presently available. But there are even scarcer, harder-to-snag examples out there — like the MAD Paris-customized 1017 ALYX 9SM Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Watch you see here. The thing is, this one is actually up for sale.

Only 40 of these watches were made, which makes this a rarified chance indeed — so long as you can spring for the whopping $81,000 price tag. But what you’ll be getting is a spectacular, hand-finished, Bauhaus minimalist beauty you can appreciate and show off for years to come. Of course, the watch also still has its stupendous Swiss-made automatic movement, that iconic octagonal stainless steel case with a matching integrated link band (accented in silver and gold), and the sale even comes with a crushproof Pelican storage case to keep it safe and sound when you’re not wearing it. There’s only one up for sale, however, so you’d better act quickly.

Purchase: $81,000
