  • Catalogue Essay

    The Royal Oak has been synonymous with luxury Avant garde horology for the past 50 years. It is a model that has spoken, and continues to do so to collectors and enthusiasts for its revolutionary aesthetics for close to two generations.

    Originally launched in 1972, the Royal Oak featured a 39mm stainless steel case housing the slim automatic caliber 2121 (which at the time was the world’s thinnest automatic caliber at only 2.45mm thick). The present example is a modern representative of this landmark collection of wristwatches. The reference 15202 was launched in 2000, and then again re-issued in 2012 in celebration of the model’s 40th anniversary featuring the applied “AP” logo once again at 6 o’clock on its dial, just like the original from 1972. The reference 15202 was powered by the same caliber 2121, which in the modern version, contrary to the original model, can be admired through the sapphire caseback. Today’s collectors consider the reference 15202 as the modern “Jumbo” since it shares nearly all attributes with regards to case size, movement, and overall looks to the now iconic reference 5402.

    The present example is a wonderful variation of the Royal Oak launched in 2019 with salmon dial, and now amongst the most sought after versions of the reference 15202. Dating to 2019, the present Royal Oak reference 15202 is in nearly new condition, and accompanied by the guarantee, and presentation box. Produced in no more than 75 examples per year until discontinued in 2021, this is the perfect opportunity to purchase a highly limited and coveted timepiece.

    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.
