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!

A striking Royal Oak indeed this reference 4100, the first mid size Royal Oak produced right after the jumbo 5402.
Dating to 1981 as per the archive from Audemars.
The case is sharp and crisp with strong edges and prominent satin finish. Overall in excellent conditions.
The Royal Blue dial ( I would typically call that color referencing the artist that used it the most his initials Y.K -but they got upset with me for using that moniker) is really incredible and attractive.
The bracelet is in good conditions standing erect and will fit up to a 7 inch wrist.
The automatic movement is running fine.
Accompanied by it’s extract from the archives and service travel AP box.
A really cool two tone Royal Oak!
This is an incredibly rare Royal Oak as it's a reference produced for only a short period and it's peculiarity is the design and proportion of the dial and bezel appearing way larger than it's 36mm+ diameter, actually appearing almost like a jumbo 39mm watch.
The case is sharp, crisp and in mint conditions with strong edges and prominent satin finish.
The dial is very attractive with it's micro tapisserie pattern and blue/grey dial color changing with each light and reflection.
The bracelet is in nice conditions with some stretch and featuring the unusual clasp and buckle used only for this reference. Will fit up to 7 inch wrist.
The movement is running strong with no issues and has been recently serviced by Audemars Piguet USA.
Accompanied by it's service papers and receipts and service travel box.
All in all that perfect Royal Oak, for the connoisseur only!!!
Masculine yet refined the Royal Oak with day date moon phase in yellow gold is a powerful combination.
Dating to the early 90s and coming to me in crisp conditions it's a watch not to be missed.
The case is thick, sharp with extremely strong edges and prominent original satin finish. Some signs of wear visible in the pictures.
The champagne dial is truly attractive and opulent, in pristine overall conditions. The day, date and moon phase displays are in fine conditions indeed.
The bracelet is erect and hard like new. Will fit up to a 7 inch wrist. Some signs of wear visible in he pictures.
The watch is running fine, I do not have service history for it.
Accompanied by it's original inner and outer AP boxes (big size!) and AP leather wallet.

I'm having great momentum with vintage Audemars Piguet, truly the best watches in the world.
This magnificent timepiece is from the 1960s and features the classic "Disco Volante" i.e. "flying saucer" case with an attractive guilloche' finish.
34mm in diameter and literally ultra flat make this watch extremely wearable and contemporary in size.
The case is in crisp conditions with the refined original finish and crisp hallmarks and engraved serial on case back.
The dial is in fine conditions with some minor aging.
The manual wind movement caliber 2003 is running well with no issues.
On new lizard leather strap.
A fantastic watch indeed
