Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 18k Rose Gold And Tantalum With Silver Date Dial Reference 14486TR
Offered here is a beautiful example of the highly appreciated 18k rose gold and tantalum 36mm AP Royal Oak. The reference 14486TR has a date display at 3 o’clock. Manufactured in 1988.
It has been nearly 50 years since the creation of the original Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and this now iconic watch is more popular than ever.
First unveiled by Audemars Piguet in the 1970s and designed by Gerald Genta who also designed the Patek Philippe Nautilus, the Royal Oak has become a classic with its distinctive features and its role as a pioneer for a luxury sports watch.
DESCRIPTION AND DETAILS
This stunning Royal Oak is cased in a rare material known as tantalum, a blue-grey metal with strengthened durability which perfectly matches the pink gold bezel and links. Audemars Piguet started using this special metal in their production in 1988, both for Royal Oak cases and bracelets.
Tantalum became very difficult to work with and other brands quickly ceased using this material while Audemars Piguet went on to produce different Royal Oak models with various combinations such as pink gold and tantalum, yellow gold, and tantalum, as well as tantalum and stainless steel.
Tantalum has proven to be a suitable alternative for people with allergies to steel, it also does not change its colour over time and has a high resistance to acids. Due to its rather high density, it also gives the watch a certain weight like a precious metal piece.
These extraordinary Royal Oaks have gained a lot of interest over the last few years and developed into being very collectable as the production numbers were believed to be less than 1000 examples.
This Royal Oak 18k rose gold and tantalum example is overall in excellent condition and must have been adored by its previous owner.
The Tapisserie silver dial is a beautiful colour and the rose gold baton markers, and matching hands reinforce the individual design of this Royal Oak.
The bracelet is in good tight condition with minimal stretch and free from any significant scratches and wear. The rose gold polished bezel ring and sapphire glass are free of any dings or scratches and enhance the overall appearance of this stunning 36mm Royal Oak.
This uncommon Royal Oak is accompanied by its Audemars Piguet box and Extract From The Archives Certificate.
