  • Catalogue Essay

    Since its launch of the Royal Oak in 1972, Audemars Piguet has integrated a diverse range of complications, materials and craftsmanship to the prestigious model. While skeletonized wristwatches have been a part of the firm’s decorated heritage, the incorporation of the delicate mechanism into the Royal Oak case was inevitable creating a perfect fusion of traditional and contemporary elements.

    The present Audemars Piguet Royal Oak ref. 14882TT from circa 1995 is a rare skeletonized wristwatch presented in a two tone tantalum and stainless steel 33mm diameter case featuring an exquisite hand-engraved skeletonized movement composed of 14K yellow gold. Equipped with sapphire display crystals on both sides, the eloquent cal. 2003/2 is proudly displayed for wearers to admire at all angles. Offered with its full set of accessories and preserved in excellent overall condition, the present lot is simply a stunning timepiece.

    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.
