About Audemars Piguet

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak was launched in 1972 with a stainless steel case, an octagonal bezel, a “TAPISSERIE” check dial, and an integrated strap. This series of models has an octagonal bezel with 8 hexagonal screws, which is a classic design feature of the Royal Oak series; the iconic guilloché engraved "TAPISSERIE" plaid decoration is made by professional technology and is hand-polished and satin Surface polished.

Why should you manually wind your Audemars Piguet watch?

The most important time to manually wind an Audemars Piguet watch is when it has stopped. Different  Audemars Piguet watches have other power-reserve times. This means that if you put your  Audemars Piguet watch on a table, for example, and then do not wear it for a few days, it will stop.

A common misconception about what to do when an Audemars Piguet watch has stopped is that you should shake it so that it gets energy again, however, this is one of the reasons why you should wind your Audemars Piguet manually in the first place as you risk damaging it The movement may wear out faster when the watch is shaken violently.

If your watch has stopped, it may even shake a little before starting, but by manually winding your Audemars Piguet you can easily get it to restart.

Audemars Piguet watch winding steps

Winding a watch is a complex job, but for many watch lovers, it's part of the fun of interacting with a watch.

Manual winding: Hold the watch in one hand and firmly unscrew the crown with the other hand until you feel it go to zero, then wind it until you feel resistance (be sure to slow down just enough Until full, if you keep winding with the same force and speed as the beginning, it is easy to damage the winding mechanism when suddenly full.) It is recommended to turn the crown at least 30 turns to keep the moving parts well-lubricated.

If you cannot find your watch model (or movement) in this watch, you can try to determine your AUDEMARS PIGUET winding mode. You should choose the combined winding mode (CW+CCW) and minimum turns per day (TPD). Then put the watch in the watch winding case and check the accuracy of the time displayed by the watch after a few days. If you fall behind, you need to increase the number of TPDs by one level.

How to adjust the time of Audemars Piguet's watch?

When we talk about winding Audemars Piguet watches, we can also briefly introduce how to adjust the time. Because if your watch runs out of power because you put it down, you'll also need to replace the time and possibly other functions like the date.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar 26574

Step 1 - Start the setup process and set the time to noon

First, you need to unscrew the crown and pull it out to the set position. Then, advance the hands until the date jumps forward. After you confirm that the date has been advanced, you will set the hour and minute hands to 12 noon. Changing the calendar at different times will break the mechanism. Keep the crown in the "SET" position until you have finished setting all the indicators in the watch.

Step 2 - Set the date

Now use the stylus provided by Audemars Piguet with your watch - don't use anything other than this stylus or you will damage the corrector - to advance the date to the correct date. The date corrector is located at 10 o'clock - the top of the left strap.

Step 3 - Set the Moon Phase

This may be the trickiest step in setting up the Royal Oak Perpetual. First, you'll advance your lunar disk from where it is until it shows a full moon centered on the aperture. To do this, you must use the corrector located at 7:30 - located at the bottom of the left watch strap.

After setting the moon disk to be a full moon, check the moon phase calendar for your location (northern or southern hemisphere) and determine the date of the last full moon. Once you find that date, you must activate the corrector twice a day since the full moon date and the date you set on your calendar. In our case, we had to press the corrector 38 times.

Step 4 - Set the month and leap year

Using the corrector at 2 o'clock (top of the right strap), you will advance the month until it indicates the correct month. If you also need to adjust the leap year indicator, keep advancing the month until the leap year hand indicates 1, 2, 3, or L of the leap year as required.

Step 5 - Set the week

Using the 8:30 corrector (left strap between date corrector and moon phase corrector),

Step 6 - Set Week Indicator and Tighten the Crown

Finally, use the corrector at 4 o'clock (bottom of the right strap) to set the day to the correct number. You can check the week corresponding to your date at Calendar-Week.

When done, make sure to push or screw the crown into position 0 to ensure the movement is protected and waterproof.

Always avoid correcting dates, months or lunar cycles in the afternoon or evening. Likewise, avoid operating the annual or perpetual calendar outside of the time frame recommended by the watch manual.

Can you wind an Audemars Piguet watch?

Audemars Piguet watches should not be overwound when manually wound. Today, Audemars Piguet designs watch so that no matter how you wind them, they won't overwind. Once the maximum air volume is reached, the winder simply disengages. However, keep in mind that this is not always the case. This means that it is possible to overwind Audemars Piguet watches that do not have this technical capability. What happens if you do this is that the spring will break and need to be replaced.

Audemars Piguet has created sophisticated and complex mechanical watches with complex functions, such as chimes, sun, moon and stars, chronographs, time display between two places, temperature measurer and compass, etc. Different styles of watches have slightly different adjustment methods. Different, it is best to refer to the manual of the corresponding watch, so as not to damage your beloved watch.
