1980s Audemars Piguet Royal Oak ref. 6005ST “Jumbo” with box & papers
Audemars Piguet, a reference house in the watchmaking sector, was created in 1875 in the Vallée de Joux. Driven by the vision of Audemars and Piguet, the company is known for producing bold, complicated, and luxurious timepieces, wristwatches as pocket watches. To the dismay of complicated watch enthusiasts, it is thanks to their collaboration with the greatest watch designer, Gerald Genta, that Audemars Piguet is recognized worldwide.
Introducing the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Reference 6005 ST – a unique timepiece that embodies the groundbreaking design of Gerald Genta!
Genta’s name is synonymous with iconic watch designs, and the Royal Oak is a testament to his genius. This watch revolutionized the industry by creating the concept of luxury sport timepieces and inspiring numerous other manufacturers.
Unlike the typical octagonal Royal Oak, the Reference 6005 stands out with its 32mm stainless steel case from the 1980s. It showcases a dark grey micro-tappiserie dial with applied indices and a white gold ‘stick’ handset. The quartz-powered movement is housed in a sapphire crystal and paired with the iconic Royal Oak integrated bracelet.
This 6005 model is a delightful outlier within the Royal Oak family, offering a funky and interesting design while providing excellent value.
The overall condition of this watch is excellent, the grey micro-tapisserie dial and matching handset are in equally exceptional condition. The watch comes with its original box and extrat from the archives, along with an AP service invoice.
Experience the extraordinary charm of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Reference 6005ST, a true representation of Genta’s design legacy.
