  • Catalogue Essay

    Since the debut of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak in the early 1970’s, the model has deemed to be the pioneer in luxury steel sports watch of the century. Sought-after by many, the very first Royal Oak ref. 5402 features a jumbo 39mm case in size, Audemars Piguet launched the ref. 66270 with an incredibly graceful 25mm sized variant for the ladies. Adding attraction to the present reference, the timepiece is produced in an unusual two-tone combination, tantalum and pink gold. Rare in its material, it is also fitted with a matching grey brushed dial with gold date that perfectly complements the case in a harmonious appeal. No longer in production, the present ref. 66270TR offered in excellent condition is perfect for the distinguished lady of elegance.

    Audemars Piguet

    Swiss • 1881

    A specialist in the manufacture of complications since it was established in 1881, Audemars Piguet never ceases to impress with a rich history of creating bold, even audacious, timepieces underpinned by traditional watchmaking at its finest. This Le Brassus-based Swiss manufacturer is one of only two major manufacturers still owned by the founding family. Since its earliest days, AP is considered a leader in the field of minute repeaters and grande complication pocket and wristwatches. The brand is devoted to preserving the history of watchmaking in the Vallée de Joux, showcased at their superb museum in Le Brassus.

    Today, the brand is best known for its Royal Oak models, a revolutionary luxury sports watch launched in 1972. Other key models include early minute repeating wristwatches, vintage chronograph wristwatches, such as the oversized reference 5020, perpetual calendar watches and the Royal Oak Offshore, first introduced in 1993.
