The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak is the timepiece that is most commonly seen on prominent wrists in Hollywood. Getting this premium timepiece is kind of a rite of passage in those exclusive celebrity circles. This vintage timepiece has been worn by everyone, from Will Smith and Travis Scott to Drake, and John Legend.

This timepiece may be the reason Audemars Piguet watches are still in production. According to legend, the corporation was on the verge of bankruptcy. That is what prompted certain executive decisions to create a watch unlike any other AP has produced up to that date. The design of the watch was influenced by a dive helmet. While that may sound strange, you can see it in the AP Royal Oak. Presently, it is extremely conceivable that the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak is worn by more celebrities, athletes, musicians, and other well-known people than any other selection.
