Can it get more chic and elegant than an ultra thin yellow gold Audemars late 1960s dress watch?

Featuring the fabled JLC based ultra thin caliber 2121 of Royal Oak Jumbo fame (still used to this day!) and a super sharp case and dial, it is really a nice sweet timepiece.

The 33mm diameter case appears larger on the wrist and comes in real crisp conditions. A slight metal oxidation gives the gold a beautiful warm tone. The waterproof screw back case back features ultra sharp serial engraving and hallmarks ( I believe one is a french gold import hallmark) visible as well on the side of the case. This watch looks basically unworn (though handling marks are visible).

The dore’ dial is very attractive and features a satiny texture that catches reflections and light beautifully. Looks flawless to me. The hand set is in fine conditions.

The automatic movement is running with no issues. I do not have service history for it.

On cognac color crocodile strap made in the USA perfectly complementing the time piece.

An elegant watch indeed.
