Audemars Piguet has joined forces with singer, guitarist and avid watch collector, John Mayer, to create a timeless masterpiece: the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar “John Mayer” Limited Edition.

This collaboration, born from the long friendship between Mayer and the brand, has given rise to a limited edition of just 200 pieces, which fuses the aesthetic power of the Royal Oak with the original astronomical-temporal complication of the perpetual calendar.

The heart of this extraordinary watch is the 5134 caliber, automatic movement from the Manufacture equipped with indication of the week, day, date, astronomical moon, month, leap years, hours and minutes. For the occasion, John Mayer applied his artistic sensibility to conceive a timepiece characterized by 18k white gold and a new dial called “Crystal Sky“. The deep blue background of this dial, enhanced by a crystal-like relief pattern, creates a panorama that evokes a crystal sky.

The collaboration between Audemars Piguet and John Mayer is part of a long tradition of stimulating dialogues with creative talents, combining technical complexity and distinctive design. The seven-time GRAMMY® Award-winning musician worked closely with AP teams to create a unique watch face, the “Crystal Sky,” through an atomic electroforming process that creates a shimmering pattern in deep blue.

The dial features matching blue PVD subdials for the day, month, leap year and date, with white printed details for flawless visual contrast. John Mayer made subtle changes to the perpetual calendar display, such as changing the color of the number “31” from red to white, demonstrating his attention to detail and aesthetic balance.

The overall design is completed by the laser micro-structured moon phase indicator at 6 o'clock, on an aventurine background, and the 18k white gold bezel that frames the dial. The case and bracelet, hand-finished with satin-finished and polished bevels, enhance the light through the faceted architecture of the Royal Oak.

The sapphire crystal case back, engraved with the words “Royal Oak Quantième Perpetuel” and “Limited Edition of 200 Pieces,” underlines the exclusivity of this creation. In this union between the timeless aesthetics of the Royal Oak and the creative vision of John Mayer, the watch becomes an icon of style and refinement, a symphony of timeless elegance that marks a new chapter in the history of haute horlogerie.
