  • Catalogue Essay

    The Royal Oak is a revolutionary wristwatch, which was first launched in 1972 with the famed reference 5402. It was the world’s first stainless steel luxury sports watch with a fully integrated bracelet, and at the time the most expensive stainless steel watch ever made. Designed by the legendary Gerald Genta, the monobloc case has a distinctively maritime appeal with an octagonal bezel secured by eight hexagonal screws. The model became an icon and fan favourite for its rugged, masculine, and sporty aesthetics, and since its introduction, Audemars Piguet has produced many iterations of its original Royal Oak, experimenting with different case sizes, materials, and dial treatments.

    The present reference 15202PT is a tribute to the Gerald Genta design with classic clean lines, in the original 39mm diameter “Jumbo” design, but made in platinum, while the original 5402 was only made in stainless steel, steel and gold and all 18K gold. Platinum Royal Oak “Jumbo” models are exceptionally rare, such as the reference 14802PT released in 2000 to celebrate the model’s 20th anniversary made in only 20 examples.

    The new model is upgraded with a stunning smoked green sunburst dial, which is eye catching and compliments the shimmer of the platinum case and bracelet. The vibrant green shade is obtained by adding drops of green colouring to the protective varnish, growing from a deep forest colour to an electric green, providing the watch with depth and vibrancy. This Royal Oak houses the ultra-thin automatic caliber 2121 giving the watch a sleek profile on the wrist.

    The present model was released in 2021 in 100 examples, and is complete with its certificate and presentation box. The Royal Oak is an icon in the world of horology, and this new unworn model is a luxurious representation of this most sought after model.

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