The Swiss manufacturer presents its first 34 mm Royal Oak Selfwinding model made entirely of white ceramic. True to the design of the 2021 black ceramic model (77350CE), this variation is distinguished by a pristine white color contrasted by touches of rose gold on the screws, hands, indices, case back and oscillating weight.

In line with fake watches released in 2021 and 2022, this 34mm self-winding Royal Oak model features a monochrome aesthetic enriched with rose gold accents.

Building on the design evolution introduced in 2022 for the 50th anniversary of the Royal Oak, the dial features a Grand Tapisserie motif that gives it a refined shine. This brilliance is further enhanced by rose gold detailing on the luminescent indexes and hands, as well as the applied Audemars Piguet replica signature created through galvanic growth.

Rose gold is also present around the edge of the sapphire case back, through which an oscillating rose gold mass can be admired. On the contrary, the steel folding buckle is enriched with a black color achieved thanks to a DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) treatment.

Harder than black ceramic, the white variant has pushed the technical limits of Audemars Piguet's case and bracelet know-how to embrace the Manufacture's distinctive alternation of satin finishes and polished bezels.

The brilliance of the white ceramic is enhanced by eight hexagonal screws, specially crafted in 18K rose gold, which securely fasten the bezel to the case while providing a subtle accent of color. Each of the screws has also been meticulously hand finished.

Following the new aesthetic norms introduced in 2022, the ceramic bracelet uses invisible pins integrated directly into the studs to connect them to the links.

The self-winding Caliber 5800 was designed specifically for the 34mm Royal Oak collection that was introduced in 2020. It offers a 50-hour power reserve and water resistance to a depth of 50 meters. The sapphire caseback reveals parts of the mechanism components and the specific 22-karat rose gold oscillating weight. Following tradition, the movement features high-end decorations such as Côtes de Genève, circular veining, satin finishes and sunrays.
