Audemars Piguet Royal Oak
In 1972, Audemars Piguet released, what was at its time, the greatest steel watch ever created. It was the first wristwatch in steel to be regarded as luxurious by the public, a complete revolution. Little did they realize, nearly 50 years later, they might still hold that title. Its been their steadfast respect for their design, remarkable standards of quality and most famously, a level of finishing never seen before that has earned and maintained their spot at the top. And this, the reference 4100 is a part of that rich history.
And just as importantly, its an impressively well preserved part of that history. Its integrated bracelet is not only tight but original in its finishing, the thick bevels that define its case have eluded the polishing wheel and its bezel has gone virtually un-nicked. I have held quite a few Royal Oaks but this example, this reference 4100, is “take your breath away” good. At a fraction of the price of its predecessors, it represents tremendous value and on the wrist, its a dream.
