Genta presented his design for the Replica Royal Oak to Audemars Piguet in 1970.
As the story goes, Genta drew his design for the Audemars Piguet Replica watch in one night, after being inspired by a diver wearing an old fashioned helmet attached to his suit by eight screws.
This translated into the design of the watch, which features an octagonal shape with eight screws on the bezel. The octagonal design has remained even in the most recent incarnations of the watch, including the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Replica, introduced in 1993, and Royal Oak Offshore Diver, introduced in 2013.
