These two watches are probably the best design in the 20th Century and I am sure that there is not much you can tell on how to perfect the design further more. The Royal Oak AP was the design of Gerald Genta in 1972, employed the Britsih Royal Navy Royal Oak that has an octoganal Shaped window made of Oak. 8 Tiny screws to lock up the bezel onto the dial airtight!The first time to use Stainless steel on his top of the line watch instead of precious metal. 60's and 70's is the time for all sport orientated design watches. These are ten best popular sportive watches in the 70's. They are still the Hot Top watch line of these Makes! Why!? Because 60's 70's is the best year for almost all kind of design!

I think these are the great Classic and some of them still top of the model currently!The reason is that they are the best design and best product...
As for the AP, is is a classic for sport, as a dress watch, you can wear it everyday, it is reliable, beautiful and a perpetual Pretty Watch!My one is a Solid Gold verison which I think only a few left in the world as in the 1970's Only rich people would buy a Gold Rolex, a AP solid gold? People would be a bit hesitate as I think that we a price that could buy a small Flat in HK!?In 1976 PP Developed the Nautilus Line which they had requested Gerald Genta to design for them, again Gerald Genta... Soon afterward, the GP Laureato was modified by Gerald to give some touch up on the design.So you see Gerald Genta is the best designer and what he created is two of the best Four Watch in the World , which, his design remains the Top of the line for PP and AP and they are the Classic for Tomorrow!
