Tick-Talk of the Town: Rare Royal Oak UAE Watch Surfaces for Sale

In a world where watches are more than just devices to keep time, a rare gem has just surfaced.

Diamond Watches London (DWL) has just become the bearer of a horological treasure – a limited edition Audemars Piguet Royal Oak UAE watch. Among the 75 pieces ever made, this is the only one available on the open market at present.

This isn’t just any Royal Oak; it’s a nod to both tradition and Middle Eastern pride. Crafted with the design ethos of Gerald Genta from 1972, this watch marries heritage with a dash of modern panache.

Its standout feature? A turquoise dial, reminiscent of the Yas Marina F1 Grand Prix circuit in Abu Dhabi.

But the allure doesn’t stop there. This watch comes adorned with AP’s famed “Grande Tappisserie” pattern, a perpetual calendar, and a trio of subdials. The numerals and lettering stand out in stark white against the vibrant dial, ensuring you won’t need to squint to tell the time.

Originally released in 2020 for the who’s who of the UAE, this timepiece was a hat tip to the region’s VIPs. It was also a subtle flex by Audemars Piguet, showcasing their commitment to crafting unique pieces for different parts of the world.

The Royal Oak series shook up the luxury watch market when it launched. From pioneering the stainless steel sports watch trend to making integrated bracelets the in-thing, it’s no wonder that this particular edition, the Royal Oak UAE ref. 26613ST, was snapped up before you could say “time flies.”

As for the price, it’s a classic case of ‘if you have to ask, you probably can’t afford it,’ but let’s just say it’s available on request. And yes, it comes in a special turquoise box, because why not?
