  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched in 1972, the Royal Oak reference 5402 was the world’s first stainless steel luxury sports watch with a fully integrated bracelet. Designed overnight in response to an urgent request for an ‘unprecedented steel watch’, it was at the same time the most expensive stainless steel watch ever made.

    The present example is a modern representative of this landmark line of wristwatches. The reference 15202 was launched in 2000, and then updated in 2012 in celebration of the model’s 40th anniversary. It is powered by the same legendary caliber 2121 as the original, however this time, contrary to the original model, can be admired through the sapphire caseback. The present example is part of the early run of 15202s launched for the 40th anniversary, and accordingly, differs subtly from later production pieces. Namely, the rehaut is more curved than newer examples and the dial less metallic. Collectors consider the reference 15202 as the modern version of the original “Jumbo” Royal Oak as it shares so many attributes with regards to case size, movement and overall looks to the now iconic reference 5402.

    With 2022 being the 50th anniversary of its launch, the Royal Oak "Jumbo" is certainly one of the most popular and sought after timepieces. Adding to the attraction of this lot, this now discontinued modern ref. 15202 “Jumbo” is accompanied by its original warranty dated 2014, paperwork, and presentation boxes. It is preserved in excellent overall condition, and presents a wonderful opportunity to own one of these iconic timepieces.
