NET-A-PORTER announces a significant partnership with Audemars Piguet, launching selected timepieces from the brand’s Royal Oak, Millenary and Royal Oak Offshore collections. As one of the most sought-after watch brands since 1875, Audemars Piguet’s emblematic timepieces will be a true highlight of NET-A-PORTER’s already established Fine Watches & Jewelry category.
The Royal Oak, originally unveiled in 1972 has since taken its rightful place as a modern icon among watch enthusiasts with its octagonal bezel, ‘Tapisserie’ dial and integrated bracelet. The Royal Oak Offshore, introduced in 1993, is representative of Audemars Piguet’s trademark embrace of tradition and forward thinking, with its pioneering materials and daring design choices. The Millenary reveals exceptional mechanical skills in the collection’s contemporary three-dimensional design comprising an elliptical case and an off-centred dial. NET-A-PORTER will present 12 styles across the three collections in 18 carat white or pink gold.
“Following the success of the Fine Jewelry & Watch suite in 2018 and the expansion into high jewelry in 2019, we are particularly excited to be launching Audemars Piguet as the brand’s online retail partner. These truly iconic timepieces are coveted the world over, and cherished for generations. It’s exciting to be able to offer these extraordinary styles to our customer.” – Elizabeth von der Goltz, Global Buying Director, NET-A-PORTER
The launch of Audemars Piguet reinforces NET-A-PORTER’s position as the leading global destination for fine jewelry and watches.
