Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 56175TR

  • Free worldwide delivery

While the Royal Oak is a true design icon, not everyone can pull off its grandiose looks. That’s why we love the more modest mid-size options Audemars Piguet has consistently released over the years.

One of the coolest among them is the ref. 56175TR. Housed in a 33 mm case, it is the perfect size for the modestly-wristed watch lover. But don’t let the dimensions fool you. The octagonal shape, integrated bracelet, and broad bezel ensure that it wears quite a bit larger than a ruler would suggest. On top of that, the watch sits low on the wrist due to a case height of only 5.8 mm, courtesy of Audemars Piguet’s thin cal. 2612 quartz movement.

The iconic Gerald Genta-designed octagonal case and integrated bracelet are crafted from an unlikely combination of materials: tantalum and 18K rose gold. The use of tantalum—a hard and corrosion resistant metal—for the case, gives the watch a cool blue-gray sheen. In turn, the rose gold bezel, crown, and connector links on the bracelet infuse the watch with visual warmth. A beautiful slate-gray dial with vertical brushing that is contrasted by applied 18K rose gold details and rose gold printing further enhances the two-tone effect.

This ref. 56175TR dates back to 90's and is in excellent condition, having just returned from a full service at our trusted Audemars Piguet service center. The watch is accompanied by the corresponding Audemars Piguet service papers and a pouch.


Audemars PiguetAudemars Piguet is among the holy trinity Swiss maisons d’horlogerie alongside Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin. Audemars Piguet has a storied history of producing high-complication watches. It all started in 1875, when Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet founded the company in the heart of the Vallée de Joux, Le Brassus, Switzerland. This pure, rough and wild landscape, with deep, dark forests, ice-cold waters and the omnipresence of rocks and hills, provided inspiration and raw materials for the Swiss watch manufacture to develop the finest watches. Since its inception, Audemars Piguet has specialized in rare, valuable and highly-complicated watches like perpetual calendars, chronographs and chiming watches. Nowadays, the emphasis of Audemars Piguet lies on the iconic Royal Oak line.Royal OakIn 1970, Audemars Piguet instructed Genta to come up with an unprecedented steel watch. As the story goes, he found inspiration whilst seeing a diver at work with an old-fashioned diver’s helmet near Lake Geneva. Staying up all night, Genta drew the design for a circular case with an angular, octagonal bezel, eight visible screws, and an integrated bracelet. The Royal Oak was presented in 1972 as the most expensive steel watch available and it caused an uproar: why was a distinguished maison d’horlogerie putting out a sports watch, let alone in such pedestrian material? Some experts even predicted that the Royal Oak would put Audemars Piguet out of business. Though it took a while to catch on, the Royal Oak is now one of the most iconic and long-lasting watch designs and has spawned an entire product line. It wouldn’t be the first time that Genta would prove a brand’s owners, customers, and industry experts wrong.
