Don’t sleep on this custom because if you know luxe timekeeping like we do, the most playful Royal Oak by Audemars Piguet that have come through the ranks don’t look anywhere close to this. Thanks to the colourful mind of Charaf Tajer of Casablanca, this iconic wristwatch has gotten a candy-coated colour treatment that looks like it came out of Willy Wonka’s factory. Commissioned by Mad Paris – they have worked with several designers in the past including 1017 Alyx 9Sm’s Matthew M. Williams on a Royal Oak – this 36mm stainless steel beauty flaunts the colourblocking treatment to good effect. One example remixed candy pink with sky blue, mustard yellow, and crimson red.  Even the dial is just as wild with a one flaunting pinkish rings like a Looney Tunes opener to another stamped with the Casablanca logo on a red backdrop. No word yet on how many pieces these would run per design but if previous releases are anything to go by, we’re not expecting more than 10 to 20 of these to be circulating.
