The Mini Royal Oak is back with three 23 mm models in 18-carat yellow, white or pink gold.

Inspired by the Manufacture’s rich history of miniature and jewellery watches, this trio of petite watches offers a creative and contemporary interpretation of the 20 mm Mini Royal Oak launched in 1997 by rethinking the proportions, architecture, design and performance of the smallest Royal Oak ever made.

The Royal Oak Mini models combine the strong geometry of the original Royal Oak designed by Gérald Genta in 1972, with the delicacy and refinement of the Frosted Gold, which gives the case and bracelet a powerful shimmer.

The jewellery aesthetic of these dainty creations continues on the dial. The tone-on-tone Petite Tapisserie enhances the play of light created by the Frosted Gold. The luminous dial is complemented by facetted gold hour-markers that match with the colour of the case and are filled with luminescent material for optimum visibility in the dark.

These mini creations pay tribute not only to Audemars Piguet’s long tradition of miniature and jewellery watches, but also to the women who have left their mark on the history of the brand, including Jacqueline Dimier to whom we owe the first Royal Oak for women, and Carolina Bucci, the mastermind behind the Frosted Gold finish.

The Royal Oak Mini Frosted Gold models are powered by the quartz movement, Calibre 2730, one of the best in class for watches of this size. With a battery life of over seven years, this movement is ideal for a contemporary lifestyle. In addition, Calibre 2730 is equipped with a “switch”: by simply pulling on the crown, the wearer can temporarily deactivate the battery. In keeping with the tradition of Haute Horlogerie, this quartz mechanism is finished with refined decorations.

Small, charming, creative, almost frivolous, the new Royal Oak Mini watches revive a feminine myth born in 1997. They demonstrate the extraordinary plasticity of the Royal Oak collection, which transcends decades, gender, trends and dimensions.

From timeless classic and jewellery pieces to avant-garde artistic creations, these timepieces reflect the technical and aesthetic challenges of their respective eras, often anticipating the evolving tastes and expectations of their female clientele.
