  • Catalogue Essay

    With the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak ever growing in demand from collectors around the globe, the quest for handsome iterations of the model is on an all-time high. While the firm celebrates their 50th anniversary of the famed model, it is important to look back at the evolution of the Royal Oak, such as the milestone chronograph models that was first introduced in 1997. While the octagonal-shaped case has housed many complications over the decades, the chronograph is certainly one of the most desirable yet undervalued examples from the family.

    Introduced in the early 2000s, the ref. 26022BC.OO.D002CR.01 featuring a 39mm diameter case in white gold is further complimented by the firm’s signature grande tappiserie dial in white, matching perfectly with the tone of the white gold case. Powered by the firm’s cal. 2385 column wheel chronograph movement, it consists to a total of 304 components.

    Well-preserved and certainly attractive due to its friendly proportions the present example Royal Oak Chronograph in white gold from 2007 with a matching white dial will surely garner interest from the community of Audemars Piguet collectors.
