The here offered reference 56023ST is in a very well-preserved original overall condition, featuring the iconic characteristics a Royal Oak must have: the octagonal bezel, the 8 screws and the solid bracelet. Its remarkable conservation strikes at a first glance with no evident sign on both the bracelet and on the case. Under the flat sapphire crystal glass, a superb anthracite tapisserie gray dial with a topicalization that has spread all around turning the original color to a very charming bronze one, applied luminous baton indexes, gold luminous hands, an aperture for the date at 3, an outer minute division. Famous icon and aesthetically appealing, this watch is powered by a quartz movement as the testified by the very deep engraving on the back.
