A word to connoisseurs and collectors : this year, to commemorate four decades of the Royal Oak Extra-Thin yellow gold model, Audemars Piguet is reintroducing the iconic reference 15202. This new interpretation of the Royal Oak Extra-Thin is loyal to the original model and naturally picks up the aesthetic codes that have earned this collection a lasting place in collective memory, notably including its 39mm diameter that was considered outsized 40 years ago and has now become commonplace. Likewise for its octagonal case with its eight hexagonal screws, the “petite tapisserie” dial and the bracelet perfectly integrated with its case, featuring a design distinguished by the perfect assembly of links and intermediate links arranged in descending order. Part of the collection since 1972 thanks to its enduring success, the first luxury sports watch is more vibrant than ever.
