1973



A beautiful example of the iconic first series Royal Oak reference 5402 Jumbo!

A1512 series dates it to about 1973 as production started in 1972.

The case is sharp, thick with strong edges and prominent satin finish. Overall the bezel is in good conditions with some wear consistent with age. The screws on the sit flush within the metal.

The dial is overall very pleasing having acquired a lovely chocolate color with streaks of bronze here and there. The indices have a lovely cream patina matched by the hand set in great conditions. The AP logo at 6 o’clock is the icing on the cake.

The bracelet is in fantastic conditions standing erect like with no stretch. The clasp is signed Gay Freres and the buckle is the iconic one with the spelled out “Audemars Piguet” text.

The AP caliber 2121 ultra thin movement is running fine with no issues. I do not have service history for it.

A true icon of modern times!
