Audemars Piguet Steel Dress Watch

Why We Love It

This slim and elegant piece couldn't be any further removed from the bulky brute of the Royal Oak Offshore line that the brand is perhaps most commonly known for amongst today's collectors. 

Featuring a 34mm steel shaped case with a sunburst silver dial, applied indices and non-luminous pencil handset, this Reference 5273 dress watch dates to circa 1969 and serves as a window into the mindset of a pre-Royal Oak Audemars Piguet, who once excelled at making ultra-thin, ultra-svelte dress watches.

In excellent condition throughout, this is as much a historical horological treasure as it is an infinitely wearable companion for day to day usage or a special night out.

The Audemars Piguet Story

There are certain watches that define a brand, informing its design ethos and becoming nothing short of iconic in the minds of collectors.

For Audemars Piguet, that watch is the Royal Oak—in all its multitudinous incarnations. Yet the manufacture from Le Brassus did not earn its seat in the triumvirate of leading watch brands—the so-called Big Three—on the success of the Royal Oak alone.

In fact, both Jules Audemars and Edward Piguet came from long lines of watchmakers, and made their reputations long before the Royal Oak was conceived. Their reputations rested on their ability to create incredibly elegant timepieces in numerous styles.

Though they may not have had catchy names like the Royal Oak, or boasted complicated movements like the present-day Jules Audemars collection, their vintage dress watches nevertheless captures the attention to detail that Audemars Piguet has come to be known for.
