  • 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.

    The reference was made in 1,000 examples as a tribute to the original Royal Oak model. Of the 1,000 pieces released, about 700 were made in stainless steel and of those 700, it is estimated that only 200-300 were fitted with the rare, resplendent salmon dial that has become in the intervening decades, overwhelmingly desirable to collectors. The rest of the stainless steel pieces were fitted with the blue-grey dials similar to the original ref. 5402ST. With a case diameter of 39 mm, the present reference also pays homage to the ref. 5402ST, 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 622 of a limited edition of 1,000 pieces, the present watch is a time capsule distinguished by its well-preserved condition. All contrasting polished and brushed finishes remain intact while the luminous hands and indices have aged uniformly to an attractive ivory patina that compliments the vibrant salmon dial. Audemars Piguet has even taken inspiration from this very model in its contemporary catalog with the ref. 15202BC. Furthermore, all original accessories are present including the original certificate and a numbered octagonal presentation box reminiscent of the octagonal screwed bezel of the Royal Oak itself.

    As salmon dials are rarely offered in the firm’s contemporary catalog, and with less than 300 pieces ever produced, this is an extremely rare opportunity to obtain an extremely low production and distinctive timepiece, perfect for the discerning collector.
