The Royal Oak represented a real novelty in the Audemars universe as it was the brand’s first true sporting pride. It was the first luxury watch in steel with integrated bracelet and since its inception was produced in a variety of materials including full gold, platinum, tantalum, and often embellished with precious stones: the versatility of the Royal Oak helped make it a model adored by the brand’s elite clientele. The present watch is a rare example of reference 6010-516 in steel and 18K yellow gold, also known as “Royal Oak Lady” considering its octagonal shape that in some ways resembles that of the iconic model by Audemars. Its remarkable conservation strikes at a first glance with no evident sign on both the bracelet and case with the octagonal bezel, slightly different from the usual “Royal Oak-style”. The stunning tapisserie gray dial with applied stick indexes is untouched and further special quality of this lot since it’s one of the most rare variants to be found. The 6010-516 is powered by a quartz movement. This AP is an attractive, super clean example and an excellent choice for the discerning smaller wrist individual.
