  • Catalogue Essay

    To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Royal Oak, Audemars Piguet launched the all-new reference 16202ST in stainless steel as a tribute to the original Royal Oak model. Measuring 39mm diameter, the watch is a faithful homage to the original reference 5402, with the biggest change being the new in-house calibre 7121, replacing the five decade-old caliber 2121.

    Measuring 39mm in diameter the model is similar to its immediate predecessor the reference 15202ST and the original 5402. The 50th anniversary’s ultra-thin caliber 7121 features a rhodium-toned pink gold ”50-years” oscillating weight, and a patented quick-set date mechanism that will delight new owners with its ease of use. Gone are the days of painful fingers from turning the crown back and forth for endless minutes every time you wished to set the date. This model also features the extremely desirable, special anniversary Bleu Nuit, Nuage 50 “Petite Tapisserie” dial.

    The Royal Oak was a revolutionary watch first offered during a turbulent time in the world of horology. It has stood the test of time and today is one of the most cherished wristwatches available. Offered in new condition by the original owner, and complete with all of its accessories, the new reference 16202ST is a wonderful tribute to the classic original, and a fitting testament to its place in history.

    All proceeds exceeding the cost for the consignor will be donated to charities supporting access to medical care for families in need and orphanages.
