Audemars Piguet- Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar watch is an exquisite high luxury timepiece which is intimately tied to the long and illustrious history of Audemars Piguet as a manufacturer of exceptional and highly complicated haute horlogerie. This shining example of watchmaking art combines a celebrated, iconic watch design with one of the most cherished implementations in the repertoire of elite watchmaking--the perpetual calendar. This tricky complication provides indications for day of the week, date, month, leap year, and phases of the moon. The perpetual calendar's complex mechanism of cams and levers is mechanically programmed to make automatic adjustments in accord with the various lengths of the months, including February, which is affected by the cycle of leap years.
