    • Audemars Piguet is making an entrance in 2022 with 42 brand new Royal Oak luxury watch models to celebrate its 50th anniversary. What changes have they made? What prices are they asking? Finally, Would I purchase the new models, and would I change anything about them? Please let me know in the comments below, if money was no object, would you purchase a new Royal Oak? Since the first reference 5402 released in 1972, the Royal Oak has changed very little. Wow, how extraordinary. Inspired by a traditional diver’s helmet, the Royal Oak was characterized by an octogonal shaped bezel secured by eight visible gold screws, a blue petit tapisserie dial, and an integrated bracelet with intermediate links. In 2022, the introduction of the Royal Oak Jumbo Extra Thin 39mm reference 16202 was created, with almost identical design queues to the original model, in celebration of 50 years of haute horology. The biggest change is the new caliber 7121, which has replaced the original caliber 2121. The new caliber includes a 55hr power reserve compared to the original’s 40hr reserve. The movement now beats at 4 hertz versus the outgoing models 3 hertz. The new model now features a quickset date function. After 5 years of development, the new 3.2mm movement features bi-directional winding and a balance wheel fit with inertia blocks to avoid unnecessary friction.
