I’m so grateful I was able to acquire this absolutely incredible and fresh to the market Royal Oak A series from the son of the original German owner.
His dad had bought this watch in 1974 and wore it everyday since. He was a commodity broker and retired in Bolzano Italy in the 80s.
I had been working on this deal since November, after much patience, radio silences, hide and seeks and much emailing Sven came to NY on vacation and to strike a deal.
What a magnificent and perfect tropical dial, featuring a sweet caramel color which is even and simply mesmerizing in the sun light.
I took the watch and he bought me a beer.
I also love the serial number which totals up to number 7.
To life !
