At first seemingly random, the wave-like pattern of gems is precisely considered and set within the Royal Oak’s distinct design in the same way that an abstract painter might approach a canvas.

The arrangement aims to highlight the horological craft of the watch as much as the jeweller’s steady hand, particularly the way they create continuity across the entire piece.
