Breaking News: The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin Wins the Aiguille D'Or At The 2019 GPHG Awards

Today’s winning watch is made from titanium with a platinum bezel and polished platinum bracelet interlinks. Like the RD#2, the Royal Oak Selfwinding Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin measures just 41mm x 6.3mm with a perpetual calendar movement that clocks in at just 2.89mm thin. These record-breaking proportions were achieved by taking the classic, three-level perpetual calendar construction and and compressing everything into one layer, as seen in the below image. The Royal Oak Selfwinding Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin is an incredibly impressive watchmaking achievement, and one that clearly impressed the Grand Prix jurors in Geneva.
