  • Catalogue Essay

    With the 50th anniversary of the Royal Oak just around the corner, it is important to take a look at how far one of the most iconic timepieces ever created has evolved over the decades. First introduced in 1972 and designed by Gerald Genta, the ref. 5402 was at the time the most expensive stainless steel sports wristwatch with an integrated bracelet manufactured by the firm. Today, it has been substituted by the ref. 15202 the “Jumbo” Extra Thin Royal Oak retaining much of its DNA to its sibling from the 70s. Although not for long, as the firm has announced plans to replace the ref. 15202 in the near future, the reference has witnessed a surge in demand in recent years.

    Encased in a 39mm diameter case, it houses the cal. 2121 with a Jaeger-LeCoultre base, a movement that has been utilized and developed over time by the firm. Robust and reliable with a thin profile measuring 3.05mm in thickness, the calibre has given birth to many other important movements utilized in the Royal Oak line such as their perpetual calendars.

    Released in 2018 with a low production output, the Audemars Piguet ref. 15202BC.ZZ.1241BC.01 is a statement piece. fully fitted with diamonds to its full capacity, the case and bracelet is extravagantly set with 1,102 brilliant-cut diamonds weighing a total of 7.09 carats, while its pavé dial is set with 384 brilliant-cut diamonds weighing a total of 2.44 carats. Redefining the idea of the sports watch, the present example is truly a mesmerizing piece to look at and remains still a comfortable piece to wear.

    Offered in excellent overall condition with minimal wear and a lengthy bracelet, the present example from circa 2019 is accompanied by its warranty card. The perfect timepiece for both the discerned lady and gentleman collector to rave on a weekend at Nikki Beach Ibiza.
