As we all know, the iconic Audemars Piguet Royal Oak was first introduced as a luxury sports watch in 1972. This is a familiar watch with a classic octagon, threaded bezel and chain bracelet. It is also equipped with an ultra-thin automatic movement and a beautifully decorated blue dial. When AP brought Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin 15202IP into SIHH 2018, this design remained unchanged. Its exterior is all titanium, and there is a pleasant smoky blue dial on the dial.
Long story short, the birth of the Royal Oak watch in 1972 is still the first model of a luxury sports watch. Everyone loves pioneers, especially loyal fans and collectors. Corresponding to this, 15202 is perhaps the most classic royal oak series. It uses the same 39mm case as the 1972 version, and the inside is a modified date and date ultra-thin movement, which has been updated to some extent to integrate new technology, but if we look closely, it It still retains its original structure. The model seen in 1972 We can even see the same “petite tapisserie” guilloche pattern on the dial and the integrated bracelet.
In summary, the new luxury watch really feels familiar. The new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin 15202IP looks at the same level as the original steel ST model, despite the refreshed appearance. We also like that the biggest feature of Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin 15202IP is that its case and bracelet are made of high-grade titanium alloy, making the watch light and strong. The sturdy 950 platinum bezel and the platinum links in the bracelet further add to this impressive specification. Interestingly, this changed the appearance, because the original steel model was mostly brushed and had a positive significance, because of its low density, titanium feels different from steel on the skin.
You can also see another significant update to the Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin 15202IP on the dial. The time and date display with the second hand looks beautiful, and is equipped with a platinum hand and applied markers. The “petite tapisserie” guilloche pattern is the same as the 15202ST model, except for its smoky blue tone. We like the depth of the dial, its edges appear darker, while the center is still brighter. Under bright lights, this can almost show a playful hue, especially the blue shade.
Titanium Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin 15202IP power source is the same as 2121 movement, but it is the improved JLC movement used in Royal Oak 5402 in 1972. Its thickness reaches an astonishing 3.05mm, still far ahead of its time. It is equipped with a central rotor for automatic winding, which can be seen through the bottom cover. The beautifully decorated movement jumps at a frequency of 2.75Hz and can output 40 hours of power.
