Audemars Piguet produced the first Royal Oak in 1972, with a custom Jaeger LeCoultre movement designed by the brilliant horologist Gerald Genta. It was named for the British battleships of World War II, which in turn were named for the oak tree in which Charles II of England hid from his enemies, the Roundheads.
