Review of Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar
Are you a busy person who tend to forget the current date and day? If yes, a Perpetual Calendar Watch is the best for you. I will show you a sporty but luxurious watch which not only has Date & Day Dials but also have Moonphase Display. Let take a look at the photo and the specifications below, then guess what kind of watch I will show you.
- Case: 41 mm x 9.5 mm – black ceramic case – glare proof sapphire crystals – 20m water resistant
- Movement: calibre AP5134 – automatic winding – 29.00 mm – 40h power reserve – 19’800 vibrations/h – 38 jewels – hours, minutes, perpetual calendar with indication of the week, day, date, month, moon phase and leap year.

The answer is very easy, right? It the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar with the Ref. #26579CE.OO.1225CE.01. The new reference 26579CE is the first all-ceramic (case and bracelet) watch from the brand. The ceramic makes the watch powerful & luxurious. Beyond the modern black aesthetics, ceramic is one of the hardest materials used to craft cases but it is also light and wearable. The case looks like a black diamond which is meticulously crafted with advanced techniques.
Like other product line of Royal Oak, the dial of Perpetual Calendar Watch is “tapisserie” pattern to make it stand out from the crowd. Slate grey dial with “Grande Tapisserie” pattern, black counters, white gold applied hour-markers and Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating, black inner bezel. All of these things create a precise design.
As a perfect Perpetual Calendar Watch, the Ref. 26579CE shows many information of day, date, month, leap year and moon phase but the layout is clear. It also shows the week, a rather unusual but quite practical feature. The combination between white, grey and black is good due to it create an elegant look for the watch.
The bracelet is made of black ceramic with titanium folding clasp. The architecture of the bracelet is indeed impressive. It is super-flexible and comfortable so it is really suitable for the watch. However, everyone wears this kind of strap so it’s little boring.
If you want to make your watch differ, I will show you some straps that I think they’re suitable for this AP watch. The watch case is black so you can easily choose the color for the strap. However, I prefer dark color so that it can keep the luxurious and elegant look of the watch but choosing a bright color still be nice.
This Black Stingray Leather Watch Strap is suitable for Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar by its black color and strong material. It creates a new look for the watch, still powerful but more energetic.
The Dark Blue Genuine Crocodile Hornback Leather Watch Strap is very easy to combine with any watches. This color belongs to royal so when you combine it with the black 26579CE, the watch won’t be as original but more luxurious.
Black & White are always elegant combination. It will be very interesting when you have a black watch with white strap, especially a Python Leather Strap. Python Leather is light and soft, it will make a sporty watch become more elegant.
Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Watch Ref. #26579CE.OO.1225CE.01 is very useful for busy person. If you like the sporty & elegant look of the watch, you can choose this for your collection.
