Since its inception in 1972, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak has stood as a symbol of horological excellence, redefining the standards of luxury watchmaking. Revolutionary in its design and mechanical prowess, it was the brainchild of the legendary watch designer, Gérald Genta. The Royal Oak marked a departure from the traditional round-case watches of its time, boasting a pioneering octagonal case shape, exposed screws, and a distinctive integrated bracelet. This audacious approach challenged conventions, paving the way for a new era in watch design. Presented here is the Royal Oak Stainless Steel "A-Series" ref. 5402ST, representing the inaugural production of the Royal Oak. As the firstborn of the Royal Oak family, it possesses a unique charm that resonates with collectors and enthusiasts alike. The case measures at 39mm and is crafted in stainless steel, with a harmonious fusion of brushed and polished surfaces. Originally fashioned with a blue grande tapisserie dial, over time will discolor into a golden brown color due to exposure to UV light, oxidization, humidity, and much more. Each discoloration is different as the dial is exposed in different ways, which means that each golden brown dial is different and completely unique. At the heart of this timepiece beats the legendary Caliber 2121 self-winding movement, among the world's thinnest automatic movements. The integrated stainless steel bracelet of the Royal Oak is a feat of engineering, providing a seamless transition from case to strap. This iconic design is both comfortable and aesthetically captivating. With its timeless design, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Stainless Steel "A-Series" Ref. 5402ST is more than a watch; it's a symbol of heritage, innovation, and uncompromising quality. It encapsulates the spirit of the Royal Oak collection and reflects the enduring legacy of Audemars Piguet.
