(1972) AUDE­MARS PIGUET ROYAL OAK REF­ER­ENCE 5402ST

Plaza Watch International - - The 50 Most Influential -

This dar­ing wrist­watch marked the start of a col­lec­tion that has be­come prac­ti­cally syn­ony­mous with Aude­mars Piguet and has un­for­tu­nately left some other great mod­els in its shadow. The first luxury sports watch was made in stain­less steel and marked the first time that the watch in­dus­try per­formed alchemy if you look at the price/ma­te­rial ra­tio. Designer Gérald Genta made his name and his mark with this watch though it would not be the last model he is as­so­ci­ated with.
