This Ultra-Thin Timepiece Just Won Watchmaking’s Most Prestigious Award

Without hyperbole, we can say that the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak is one of the most iconic and important watches of all time. Not only does it look instantly-recognizable with its signature octagonal bezel, but the brand has continually taken it to task to put new, creative spins on it. And now their constant commitment to innovation has earned them perhaps the most prestigious award in the world of watchmaking.

Announced yesterday at the 19th Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak Selfwinding Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin earned the “Aiguille d’Or” Grand Prix prize — essentially a best in show award. And a glance at this timepiece instantly reveals just how deserving it is. You see, this watch is the world’s thinnest perpetual calendar automatic chronograph with a case that’s just 6.3mm thick and protects a mind-boggling 2.89mm-thick movement. Pair that with its hybrid titanium-platinum construction, a 40-hour power reserve, 20m water-resistance, and an exhibition back and it’s plain to see that this is one of the finest timekeepers ever envisioned.
