  • Catalogue Essay

    The Royal Oak 15202 has hit all the right notes with collectors around the world, so much so that the waiting list for the steel model stretches out into years!

    Collectors consider the reference 15202 as THE modern Royal Oak to have as it shares all the attributes with regards to case size, movement and overall looks to the now iconic reference 5402.

    Originally launched in 1972 the watch had a 39mm steel case housing the slim automatic caliber 2121 (which at the time was the world’s thinnest automatic caliber only 2.45mm thick). The present example is a modern representative of this landmark line of wristwatches. Reference 15202 was launched in 2000, and then again re-issued in 2012 in celebration of the model’s 40th anniversary and is powered by the same caliber 2121 which this time, contrary to the original model, can be admired through the sapphire caseback.

    The present Royal Oak reference 15202 was purchased in 2016 and was consigned to us by the original owner with its original wrapping from the luxury watch retailer Arije in Paris. A video posted in the online catalogue gives you the opportunity to participate in the unpacking of this iconic watch, which has never been worn and comes complete with box, hang tag and guarantee.

    At the time of cataloging this reference is to be discontinued, adding to the rarity of the present timepiece.
