Design, photography, sound and film come together for a stellar Royal Oak 40th anniversary worldwide exhibition. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Audemars Piguets iconic timepiece Royal Oak, the worlds first ever luxury sports timepiece which sparked a complete paradigm shift in the watch industry, the Swiss Manufacture from Le Brassus in the Vallée de Joux has put together a unique, ephemeral exhibition.

Thanks for the posting the video. Very cool to see a video tour of the exhibit and the background about the artists that created it with AP.
Did you happen to notice that at the 00:28 mark of the video that they showed the AP RO Dual Time 26120? IMO it's an under appreciated piece in the AP collection.
