  • Catalogue Essay

    Introduced in 2017, Audemars Piguet launched the Royal Oak Chronograph ref. 26331IP to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the firm’s first all titanium Royal Oak chronograph ref. 26320 from 1997. While maintaining similar aesthetics to its older models, the new model featured a larger 41mm diameter case with larger hour and minute registers at 3 and 9 o’clock. With an attractively curated appeal, the watch features a lightweight titanium case and bracelet fitted with a mirror polished bezel and center links which combines to a total weight of 187 grams. Displayed on a two tone grey and blue grand tappisserie dial, the harmony between the two tone case and the dial is subtle but refined nonetheless.

    Released as a limited edition of 500 pieces, the ref. 26331IP has become one of the most demanded Royal Oak models in the market in recent times. The present example from circa 2017 is offered in excellent overall condition and is further complete with its full set of accessories.

    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.
