  • Catalogue Essay

    It is needless to say that the Royal Oak is easily one of the most iconic and sought-after luxury sports watch in history. Its origin and design is deeply cemented in collectors’ mind since 1972, a legend that turns 51 this years, the model has enjoyed numerous variations and upgrades. Perhaps one of the most jaw-dropping variation that make heads turns is the openworked Royal Oak. Nothing is more enjoyable to be able to see all the mechanics in action, each tick, each click of the teeth and pallets excites its viewer.

    Unveiled In 2010 at the SIHH (Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie based in Geneva). The new reference 15305 is powered by the caliber 3129, which is the openworked version of Audemars Piguet's in-house 3120 found in the traditional reference 15300. Kept in the same case diameter as the first Royal Oak sized at 39mm, the present ref. 15305 is a celebration of pink gold and slate grey. A beauty of its architecture can be appreciated on both sides of the watch. Through the anti-reflective sapphire crystal, the hand-finished and skeletonized ruthenium bridges and mainplate, as well as on the caseback side, the remarkable 22-carat gold winding rotor gives you a breath-taking view of this Royal Oak.

    Offered in excellent condition from the original owner, the present pink gold skeletonized Royal Oak comes with all its accessories.
