John Mayer and Audemars Piguet have collaborated to create a special edition of the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar that captivates with its celestial charm and expert craftsmanship. The 18-carat white gold watch combines the Royal Oak’s iconic design with complex perpetual calendar functionality.

This collaboration highlights the convergence of two exceptional worlds, resulting in a timepiece that marks time and celebrates it.

Mayer’s influence on the dial transforms the watch’s face into a mesmerizing vision of the infinite cosmos. The dial’s texture, developed through an electroforming process, creates a crystalline sky on the wrist, with facets that scatter light to create a profound and enchanting effect.

John Mayer reflects, “My favorite watches have dials that you can stare at endlessly. A great watch dial feels like a picture window—you look into it, not at it. In the case of this QP, it’s like looking up at a moonless sky.”

Mayer continues, “There is a true sense of nature in it. And when you couple that sense of depth and vastness with the complication of a perpetual calendar, it is a very powerful combination of technical prowess and aesthetic design.”

At the heart of the timepiece is the Calibre 5134 movement, housed in a modern tribute to Audemars Piguet’s historic Calibre 2100/2800 from 1978. The Calibre 5134, introduced in 2015, adapts to a more significant case while maintaining an elegant slimness, continuing the legacy that has shaped the brand’s storied past into the present.

This special edition Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar, influenced by Mayer’s vision, goes beyond simply telling time, showcasing the interconnectedness of art, technology, and the human experience.
