The watch: the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak with a green dial
The best thing about this watch: This proves that everyone’s favorite felt frog is wrong: she is easy to be green.
The backstory: Next week, watch collectors around the world will gather around their computers for Watches & Wonders, the show for new timepieces redesigned for the pandemic. The event will certainly be a godsend of new pieces, as Patek Philippe and Rolex will join in this year’s festivities. And the contenders for the best new watch of the year are already multiplying. Last week Omega anticipated the hype and released a new line of vintage-inspired Seamasters. Also on the program: a range of new Royal Oaks with a green dial. The classic no-frills version comes with a “sunburst” dial, while other iterations sport flat green dials but make up for that with other bells and whistles. There is a gold chronograph and a quartet of pieces fitted with a tourbillon in gold, rose gold and titanium, one with emeralds around the bezel and the other without. All of them are sure to be fan favorites.
This watch counts in the world of watches because: When we talk about a watch of the magnitude of the Royal Oak, any new edition will hit the headlines. Audemars Piguet’s most coveted and popular model – the simple Royal Oak known as the 15202 – is now available in a new standard color. The beauty of the Royal Oak has always been its versatility, and AP created a version of the watch with colorful green dials in the ’70s before dropping the shadows. The brand made a very limited edition green dial watch with a perpetual calendar in 2018, but foliage enthusiasts and geniuses had few options to choose from outside of that. The green Royal Oaks are now entering the main line of Audemars watches.
