  • Catalogue Essay

    Since its launch in 1972, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak is still one of the holy grails of luxury sports watches today. Highly desired, the first iteration, ref. 5402 features a jumbo 39mm diameter case while the present example is a ref.15000, housed in a distinguishably smaller, elegant 33mm case. Encased in stainless steel, the watch is fitted with a rare, exquisite white porcelain dial paired with black Roman numerals, resembling the keys on a baby grand piano. Sporting a refined clean dial with a relatively muscular case, the present example is offered in excellent overall condition and will be a great addition to any outfit, no matter day or night.

    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.
