Tenderness Of The Iron Lady Thatcher And Audemars Piguet Royal Oak
Friends who are familiar with British history will be very familiar with the name Royal Oak. Historical data keeps track of the fact that King Charles II of Britain used to hide in a hollow oak tree on his way to escape from Britain. Two hundred years later, in memory of the above-mentioned chaos and chaos, the British Navy named its three battleships ‘Royal Oak’, and the windows of the battleships were octagonal. Even before World War II, the Royal Oak battleship was the pride of the Royal Navy.
In 1972, Audemars Piguet designed an advanced sports watch with the octagonal window of the battleship named ‘Royal Oak’.
Perhaps it was because of the relationship between Royal Oak and Britain that Mrs Thatcher was fond of the series; or it was because Mrs Thatcher practiced ‘iron-fist politics’ in political decision-making, which made her choose to match A watch style consistent with its attitude. The unique geometric structure of this watch is very high. Whether it is an octagonal case shape or eight hexagonal screws, they are the hallmarks of this series of watches. In addition, Audemars Piguet’s ‘Grand Tapisserie’ oversized checkered dial decoration brings fashion to the watch while adding an elegant tenderness to her ‘Iron Lady’ image. The two complement each other and highlight the glory.
Today, Mrs. Thatcher is far away from the crowd, and the only thing she brings to Britain is to let history evaluate it.
