  • Catalogue Essay

    The Royal Oak has been synonymous with debonair chic for almost 50 years. A watch that has spoken, and still speaks, to collectors, enthusiasts and aesthetes for close to two generations.

    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.

    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.

    Bought in December 2018 and hardly worn, the present Royal Oak reference 15202 comes complete with box, guarantee, extra steel links and invoice and offers a perfect opportunity to purchase a watch that represents and icon and for which there is a waiting list.
