Like the most recent models of the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar, in steel and rose gold, this watch has a 41-mm case in the classical octagonal style of the Royal Oak collection and featuring a clear, glare proof sapphire case back. It has a screw-locked crown, ensuring water-resistance of 20 meters.

The au courant blue dial is decorated with the collection’s familiar “Grande Tapisserie” pattern of subtly raised three-dimensional squares. The calendar displays are on prominent subdials at 9 o’clock (day), 12 o’clock (month and leap-year), and 3 o’clock (date). In addition, an astronomical moon-phase display appears at 6 o’clock and the week of the year is indicated on a numbered 1-52 chapter ring surrounding the dial. The applied hour markers, like the case, are in yellow gold and the hands are treated with luminous coating.
