Audemars Piguet Royal Oak "Extra Thin" Jumbo

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak "Extra Thin" is arguably one of the world's most coveted luxury timepieces, created in incredibly limited quantities on an annual basis, the waiting period for this model extends over a year. Originally arriving in 1972, this particularly exclusive timepiece is lovingly nicknamed the "Jumbo", despite being far from a large watch! The 39mm case houses the legendary Audemars Piguet Caliber 2121 with a date display mechanism, however a case this size was considered highly unusual in the 70's. The first customer of the now eponymous Royal Oak "Jumbo", was the Shah of Iran who received his model is full white gold.
