Catalogue Note

After the successful launch of the Royal Oak in 1972, Audemars Piguet and Jacqueline Dimier, a pioneer in complicated women’s watchmaking designed the perfect lady’s version of the Royal Oak.

In a very honest and well-preserved condition, the present watch not only is very well made and designed, the minor signs of ageing to the dial adds tremendous character to the present watch, making it more attractive for vintage lovers. The case and bracelet still retains very nice, sharp and crisp finishing. Seldom do these early steel Royal Oak come to market, especially in such original condition.
