When hearing the name Audemars Piguet, thoughts immediately go to the legendary Royal Oak. Iconic as very few other models have been in the history of horology, it is the umpteenth creation of the immortal designer Gerald Genta. Released in 1992 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Gérald Genta’s timeless design classic, Audemars officially introduced the reference 14802ST, such as the present lot in a limited edition of just 1000 pieces. The present example is absolutely remarkable for its conservation: the whole bracelet and clasp are in excellent conditions and also the back still presents the case number engraved very crisp. The case and the immediately recognizable bezel are still maintaining their original proportions. The surface of the originally black dial with the guilloché mini-“tapisserie” pattern—a texture found on all early Royal Oak dials—is still nice and well defined. It is decorated with applied baton indexes and the AP logo at 12, while at 3 o’clock is located the date window. Offered with box, certificate d’originality and additional links, the present lot is a lavish example of one of the most appreciated models ever produced.
