    Though technically speaking, the Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin reference 15202 is made of stainless steel, it’s virtually unobtanium. A years-long waitlist and highly selective allocation, combined with covetable aesthetics and utter refinement has propelled this watch into the stratosphere of desirability. Adding to this rarified status, Audemars Piguet decided 2021 would be the final year for the 15202, after ten years of production of this most recent generation.

    Originally launched in 1972 as the world’s most expensive stainless steel wristwatch housing the thinnest, full-rotor automatic movement (a mere 2.45mm thick – about the size of a Euro 50 cent coin) as the reference 5402, architecturally little has changed in the past half-century. The iconic octagonal profile, deep blue tapisserie dial, applied “AP” logo at 6 o’clock, and the ultra-thin caliber 2121 have endured the tides of stylistic change and emerged unscathed. The most obvious difference is the sapphire crystal back by which the wearer can admire the groundbreaking movement. The Royal Oak Jumbo is a true icon of horological design, brought to life by the talented pen of horological designer extraordinaire, Gerald Genta.

    Presented in brand new condition, from the original owner, and with its complete suite of accessories, the present 15202 even retains its protective stickers as delivered by the factory.

  • 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.
