The steel Royal Oak ref. 15002
Extremely rare steel Audemars Piguet “Royal Oak” ref. 15002, manufactured in 1997.
The Royal Oak reference 15002 is an extremely elusive piece that has graced the auction market on only a handful of occasions in the past years.
Launched in 1996, it is in many manners similar to the original Royal Oak reference 5402 with its 39mm case, slim profile, tapisserie dial.
It houses the extra thin automatic cal 2121 and even has a closed caseback with the case number on the back.
Due to these similarities, reference 15002 could even be mistaken for a reference 5402 D series as both have the same dial configuration.
According to scholarship, only 186 pieces in stainless steel were ever made (as well as 27 in yellow gold) making the present example number 084 one of the earliest models.
Preserved in overall excellent condition with sharp bevels and angles to the case and bezel and a very clean crisp dial, the present reference 15002 offers an incredible opportunity to own one of the rarest steel “Jumbo” Royal Oak models ever made.
