There are thou­sands of watches out there but barely a hand­ful of true “grail” time­pieces like the Aude­mars Piguet “Royal Oak”. This clas­sic was launched in 1972 as a steel sports watch and the range now ex­tends to com­pli­ca­tions (ad­di­tional func­tions, in­clud­ing date dis­play or chrono­graph) and a $66,100 rose-gold ver­sion, shown here. An­other con­stant: hexag­o­nal “screws” se­cur­ing the bezel. The watch spans 41 mil­lime­tres, is wa­ter re­sis­tant to 50 me­ters and pow­ered by a self-wind­ing move­ment.
