About the model
The Audemars Piguet 6001 is an incredibly good looking timepiece with an undeniable 70’s coolness factor to it.
Launched in 1974, it was Audemars Piguet’s first watch featuring a quartz movement and was available in steel, yellow gold or white gold.
Omega had developed the ultra precise Megaquartz caliber 1510 – precise to one second a month which it shared with Audemars Piguet who labeled it as cal. 2510 and that can be found in the present reference 6001.
Design-wise the reference 6001 is almost a rectangular Royal Oak, keeping with the 8 edges to the bezel and the tapisserie dial. It even features the AP at 6 o’clock like the beloved ref 5402 A Series.
