Audemars Piguet - Royal Oak Automatic 15400 & 15450

Audemars Piguet certainly know how to turn stainless steel into pure, covetable gorgeousness. In my opinion they make it look better than gold. The steel and silver-dialed 15400ST.OO.1220ST.02 is high on my wish list. Apart from the overall Gérald Genta design and the movement itself, the way the tapisserie dial and the bracelet bevels reflect the changing light is truly beautiful.

Ref. 15400 (41mm)

Calibre 3120
