  • Catalogue Essay

    Designed in the 1990s, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Dual Time was a timepiece built for jet setter of the era. Much like the all-time collector’s favourite Royal Oak Jumbo ref. 5402, the Royal Oak Dual Time ref. 26120 features a 39mm diameter stainless steel case as a homage to the original proportions with a contemporary touch. The stainless steel reference was launched in 2 variants, a white dial and a black dial like the present example. On top of the rich dark grand tapisserie dial, four complications are displayed in white and red accents to offer maximum legibility: a date function at 2 o’clock, a second time-zone with day and night indication at 6 o’clock, and finally a power reserve indication at 9 o’clock. Powered by the self-winding calibre 2329/2846 beating at a frequency of 28,800 vph, delivering 40 hours of power reserve. Beautifully balanced with a wealth of information, the black variant boast an attractive masculine appeal. Discontinued in 2015, the present example offered in an attractive condition is accompanied with original warranty and accessories.

  • Artist Biography

    Audemars Piguet

    Swiss • 1881

    A specialist in the manufacture of complications since it was established in 1881, Audemars Piguet never ceases to impress with a rich history of creating bold, even audacious, timepieces underpinned by traditional watchmaking at its finest. This Le Brassus-based Swiss manufacturer is one of only two major manufacturers still owned by the founding family. Since its earliest days, AP is considered a leader in the field of minute repeaters and grande complication pocket and wristwatches. The brand is devoted to preserving the history of watchmaking in the Vallée de Joux, showcased at their superb museum in Le Brassus.

    Today, the brand is best known for its Royal Oak models, a revolutionary luxury sports watch launched in 1972. Other key models include early minute repeating wristwatches, vintage chronograph wristwatches, such as the oversized reference 5020, perpetual calendar watches and the Royal Oak Offshore, first introduced in 1993.
