Notes

In December 1875, Jules Louis Audemars formed a partnership with his childhood friend, Edward Auguste Piguet. In 1881, the two watchmakers created officially Audemars Piguet & Cie based in la Vallée de Joux. The Royal Oak was launched in 1972, in stainless steel, after Audemars Piguet called on the genius of iconic designer Gerald Genta to produce a wristwatch both elegant and sporty. In 1977, Audemars Piguet introduced the first gold model, the reference 5402BA. Production continued until the early 1980s. In a very good overall condition, which is very rare especially for a gold model, this lot is a must-have for all the Royal Oak lovers!
