  • Catalogue Essay

    Without much of an introduction needed, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak has become one of the most iconic, important and sought-after timepieces in recent times. With an ever-growing cult-like following, the Royal Oak family has offered a wide array of important timepieces throughout its entire lineage, one of which is the Royal Oak chronograph. Making its debut in 1998, early examples featured a 39mm diameter case via the ref. 25860ST.

    In 2016, Audemars Piguet released the ref. 26320ST retaining its signature traits such as the grand tapisserie dial, three register chronograph layout with an enhanced 41mm diameter case. While various dial colors were released, the blue edition was exclusive only to Audemars Piguet boutiques around the world. Executed to perfection, the reference is with no doubt admired by many collectors as the “go to” sports chronograph wristwatch by the firm.

    Now discontinued, the present example Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph ref. 26320ST.OO.1220ST.03 is part of the early production to bear screw down pushers and a mono-coloured dial, later generation is fitted with pump pushers and a two-tone dial. Offered in brand new condition with no signs of wear with all its factory protective stickers intact and accompanied by its full set of accessories, this boutique exclusive reference will surely garner interest from lovers and collectors of the Royal Oak to acquire an iconic example of the coveted model to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Royal Oak, which is just around the corner.
