The discontinued Royal Oak Ladies Quartz watch reference 66270ST is an often forgotten gem that is truly one of the best looking ladies watches ever made. This beautiful reference circa 1990s is fitted with a blue 'petite tapisserie' dial that has the same hue of blue as the first Royal Oak Jumbo launched in 1972.


This extra thin timepiece has a monoblock case like all older Royal Oaks. It comes with an integrated bracelet featuring a deployant folding push button clasp bearing the engraving Gay Frères, who used to be involved in the construction of the Royal Oak bracelets from 1972 until the late 1990s.
