Be On Trend: The Hottest Audemars Piguet Watches of 2021
When talking about luxury watches, a few brand names will always strike to mind instantly. And Audemars Piguet is one of them. It is one of those watchmakers that have retained the real sense of complexity and exclusivity. Audemars Piguet is mostly referred to by its initials “AP” and represented by its most popular watch, the Royal Oak.
However, the watchmaker has strived hard over the years to diversify its creations and provide its enthusiasts with several options to suit different tastes. The stainless steel models with simple time-and-date functionality are the classic choice, and they retain excellent value over time.
Thus, let’s take a look at some of the hottest watches from AP’s most iconic collections in its current catalogue.

Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Ref. 26480TI.OO.A027CA.01
AP designed the Offshore chronograph to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Royal Oak, offering a bigger and contemporary twist. The watch made its debut in 1993, featuring a 42mm case, and it is 3mm broader than the ever-first Royal Oak.
However, despite having the classic 42mm dimension, the watch sports a little bit slimmer profile compared to some of its siblings. It has a pleasing 12.9mm thickness. So the AP Royal Oak Offshore 26480TI.OO.A027CA.01 can be the ideal sports timepiece you are looking to complement with your casual attire.
Grande Sonnerie Code 11.59 Carillon Supersonnerie Ref. 26397BC.OO.D321CR.04
Introduced in 2019, Audemars Piguet’s Code 11.59 series was an ingenious creation that awed everyone in the luxury watch industry. However, this show-stopping collection faced the loudest criticism ideally when it debuted. The dials appeared relatively dull in front of the exclusive cases.
But it is reversed in the case of Code 11.59 Grande Sonnerie 26397BC.OO.D321CR.04. You will be fascinated to know that the artist Anita Porchet custom created each dial of this series, enabling the dial design capturing the limelight.
Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin Ref. 15202ST.OO.1240ST.01
If you wonder which model is in the current AP’s catalogue closet to the first Royal Oak, the Reference 15202ST.OO.1240ST.01 would perhaps be the one. The watch features a 39mm case diameter with an 8.9mm thickness. What takes up the centre is the vibrant blue “Petite Tapisserie” patterned dial. Interestingly, it evokes the spirit of the first AP watch from 1972. However, the difference lies in the head, where small squares make the dial indented instead of raised on the current Royal Oak Extra-Thin 15202ST.OO.1240ST.01.
