  • Catalogue Essay

    The history of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak started in 1972 being the first luxury wristwatch at the time to incorporate a stainless steel case with an integrated bracelet taking its inspiration from a ship’s porthole, which is proudly portrayed throughout its naked screws on the bezel. Designed by the late Gerald Genta, the Royal Oak was the first to incorporate such idea. In 1976, Patek Philippe introduced the Nautilus, similarly designed by Gerald Genta with its inspiration deriving from the porthole as well, making the Nautilus a direct competitor of the Royal Oak.

    Still thriving till date and gaining a cult-like following over the years, Audemars Piguet introduced the ref. 15450 in 2012 replacing the former ref. 15300. With a case measuring 37mm, the ref. 15450 is a unisex wristwatch with a beautiful dimension catering to most wrist sizes. The present example in 18K pink gold with a black tappisiere dial fitted with a black crocodile strap is an attractive combination with a subtle hint of flamboyance. Very well-preserved and accompanied by the full set of accessories, the present timepiece is an excellent one for both ladies and gentlemen.
