This watch is in excellent condition, with sharp bevels on the case and bracelet. There are a small number of very light scratches.

The reference 6009 is a Royal Oak, but not as you know it. While it has the recognisable angular case and bracelet form, this watch has a rectangular case shape that distinguishes it from the normal Royal Oak.

AUDEMARS PIGUET

Audemars Piguet was founded in Le Brassus in 1875, a rural part of Switzerland. The company became famous for making high complications, with the myriad complicated pocket watches in its museum being testament to its expertise. The company went from strength to strength, producing the world's first skeletonised wristwatch in 1934 and the world's first perpetual calendar wristwatch with a leap year indicator (allowing for user adjustment) in 1955.

By the late 1960s and early 70s, however, the company was beginning to lag behind in terms of innovations. To sidestep the atrophy that would go on to destroy so many other watchmakers, Audemars Piguet decided to do something bold and released the Royal Oak.

Costing 10 times more than a Rolex Submariner did, the watch was unashamedly luxurious. This watch spawned a new genre of watchmaking, and arguably saved not only Audemars Piguet, but the entire watch industry from a slow death.
