The early version of the Royal Oak, reference 5402 can be categorised into 4 categories, A, B, C and D. Among the 4 series of 5402, the A series is the most sought after in today’s market as it not only represents the beginning of the Royal Oak model, but it is also limited to a thousand pieces, hence its esteemed value. The first 3 series of the model has the logo “AP” positioned at 6 o’clock, however D series is the only series that has the logo “AP” replacing the luminous material at 12 o’clock.
The present watch is a very rare and an uncommon B series of the Royal Oak. The reason for its rarity does not only lies in its evenly tropical/ patina dial, which is very sought after in today’s vintage market, but also because it has a double signature at 6 o’clock. The watch has been confirmed by Audemars Piguet that the case number and movement number matches and the watch was also sold in New York in 1976.
