  • Catalogue Essay

    While the Royal Oak has offered a wide array of case materials, sizes and complications over the decades, the true essence of the iconic model has always been retained. In 2012, the firm released the ref. 15450 in stainless steel featuring a 37mm diameter case that was popular among both gentlemen and lady collectors due to its friendly and versatile size. Powered by the firm’s cal. 3120 visible through its sapphire display caseback, the dial features Audemars Piguet’s signature 'Grande Tapisserie’ pattern. Four years later in 2016, the firm released their first yellow gold variant of the reference featuring a desirable blue dial making it immediately a crowd pleaser. The variant was exclusive only to Audemars Piguet boutiques making them rarer than its regular counterparts.

    The present example Audemars Piguet Royal Oak ref. 15450BA from circa 2017 with a blue dial is offered in an attractive overall condition with a layer of patina that has developed around the bezel and case stating its prolonged period of inactivity.

  • 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.
