  • Catalogue Essay

    In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Royal Oak in 1992, Audemars Piguet launched a limited edition ref. 14802 Royal Oak Jubilee for the special occasion.

    Sold between 1992 and 2002, the reference 14802 was made in 1000 examples altogether, produced in stainless steel, yellow gold, and a very small number in platinum. The present example in stainless steel is fitted with a blue-grey dial similar to the original ref. 5402ST. Paying homage to the first Royal Oak, it retains the 39 mm case proportion yet with one important difference – the use of a sapphire case back which displays the legendary, ultra-thin cal. 2121 with an engraved rotor accompanied by the case number to commemorate this special edition.

    Numbered 303 of a limited edition of 1000 pieces, the present watch is notable for its extraordinary condition - the case has never seen polishing in its lifetime. The contrasting polished and brushed finishes remain intact while the luminous hands and indexes have aged uniformly to an attractive ivory patina that contrasts beautifully with the depth of the grey-blue dial. Coming from the family of the original owner, the watch has been carefully cherished, most probably never worn and kept in a safe until today.

    Sold in 1993, the present Audemars Piguet Royal Oak ref. 14802ST is not only extremely well-preserved, it is also accompanied by all original accessories including the original certificate and a numbered octagonal presentation box in oak wood, reminiscent of the octagonal screwed bezel of the Royal Oak itself.
