When it comes to titans of Swiss watch making, Audemars Piguet is certainly at the top of most people’s lists. Within the AP landscape, the Royal Oak is iconic and instantly recognizable. In today’s edition of the Watch Video Rewind, we have a video of that very watch being made – the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak.
In the video, we see things go from a sketch, to the cutting of carbon fiber to create the case, on through the creation of some components and then, of course wrapping things up with the final assembly and a variety of quality checks. Somehow, I just never get tired of watching these sorts of videos. I especially liked the wooden “screwdriver” used for getting the caseback screws set in place. If you’ve got your own favorite, feel free to let us know.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
