Introducing The New Audemars Piguet Royal Oak “Jonh Mayer” Perpetual Calendar LE

The most recent and surprising collaboration in the watch industry takes place between the prestigious Swiss brand Audemars Piguet and the North American musician John Mayer, passionate about watchmaking, bringing a limited edition of the Royal Oak (RO) Perpetual Calendar. 

The new RO, which does not bring any innovation, stands out for its incredible and charming blue crystal dial. 

This exclusive edition also marks the end of the line for the Caliber 5134, based on the previous Caliber 2120/2800 from 1978 and adapted to fit the current 41 mm case. 

The textured dial is obtained through electroforming of sharp facets, which are then pressed against the white dial and finally a Blue PVD is applied. In contrast, all the text appears in white, including the previous Arabic number 31 on the date display, which used to be red, giving greater balance and symmetry to the dial. 

On the outside it wears an 18k white gold case measuring 41mm in diameter and 9.50mm thick that comes with the usual tapered integrated bracelet, sapphire crystal on both sides, crown at 3 o’clock with the brand’s signature and 20m water resistance. 

Inside, as already mentioned, the Caliber 5134 automatic movement operates, which comes with a 40-hour power reserve and a skeletonized rotor engraved with the brand’s “AP” and followed by its lettering, which can be seen through the exhibition case back engraved with the inscription “Limited Edition of 200 Pieces”. 

The exclusive watch can be found in the brand’s official boutiques and authorized retailers for a price of CHF 150,000.
