1974 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 5402


“Copper Sparkle Fade ”

The only thing better than an A series 5402 is one with a tropical copper sparkle fade dial. Many watch geeks, including myself, would argue that Gerald Genta saved the AP brand with this avant guard design that still feels fresh today. This beautiful A series has the first generation dial where the AP logo is positioned on the bottom half of the dial.The watch has been polished in the past but retains its sharpness throughout the case and the bracelet. The clasp is newer and was most likely replaced during a factory service. The watch also comes with a certificate of authenticity from AP which puts the production year of this piece at 1974. Thin angular watches are all about wrist feel and you can tell immediately why this one defines the genre.
