Impression of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 40th anniversary event. Held in Paris and photos shot for Fratellowatches. With an invitation in our pocket we went to Paris to be part of this global event, celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Royal Oak model, by Audemars Piguet from Le Brassus in Switzerland.
Design, photography, sound and film come together for a stellar Royal Oak 40th anniversary worldwide exhibition. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Audemars Piguet’s iconic timepiece Royal Oak, the world’s first ever luxury sports timepiece which sparked a complete paradigm shift in the watch industry, the Swiss Manufacture from Le Brassus in the Vallée de Joux has put together a unique, ephemeral exhibition. Using design, photography, sound and film from three unequivocally 21st century artists, Sebastien Leon Agneessens, Quayola and Dan Holdsworth, the Manufacture has curated an exhibition of 100 exceptional timepieces set against the backdrop of a stage that underscores Audemars Piguet’s origins, mastery and artistry.
