Offered here is an attractive example of the rare and insanely popular Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, Reference 5402, circa 1970s. Designed by Gerald Genta, the Royal Oak is the focal point and main attraction for the legendary watchmaker, and these first execution models have soared in popularity – finding a nice example has become harder and harder. This particular example is a two-tone example, in stainless steel and yellow gold, given the reference “5402SA”, with the popular grey-dial variant.
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak offered here is in great vintage condition. The case has likely been polished/detailed in the past, with nice sharp edges. The dial is beautiful, with a warm grey color, with no visible wear or damage. The original tritium lume is still present in both dial and hands, aged to a nice pale yellow color. The bracelet shows little stretch from use, and will fit approximately a 7.5″ wrist, appearing fully-linked.
