Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo 39mm




Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex…
It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction

Want a watch that's not chunky and trendy—but not so precious that you can't wear it to the bar? Wrap your wrist with the kind of simple elegance you can sport every day, everywhere, and most of the time!
Audemars Piguet Extra-Thin Royal Oak 39 mm
The new version of the Royal Oak ref. 15202 with the petite tapisserie dial that makes me crave for it very much. It is one of my favourite Watch Design.
AP also released a larger version of the Royal Oak, measuring 41 mm in diameter, however the new version of the so-called Jumbo is by far my favorite and also the new version of what Gerald Genta designed in 1972.  The ultimate luxury SIMPLE sports watch in stainless steel. A good choice for any occasion, dress or casual, work and a pleasure to wear because of its sleek design and perfectly dependable!
This Jumbo 39mm AP Royal Oak was nominated one of the top-ten best Watch of the year 2012!
Ref 150202ST.00.1240ST.01 Stainless steel 39mm HKD$138,000.  estimated subjected to discount
Ref 15202OR.00.1240OR.01 Pink Gold 39mm HKD$475,000 list price, subject to discount.

Hi HK Snob, I am interested in the blue dial version but it is not easily available in the AD shops and I was told that only the AP own boutique carries the blue version and offers limited discount.

Appreciate your advise on the availability in HK and the price. I will be in HK in mid Jan and hope to acquire the watch if available at a reasonable price. Thanks.

Hi Hk Snob, do you know if there is anyway that I could find a used Royal Oak 15202 for HKD$120k? Many thanks

Dear Hung, I check for you.
Likely a bit too low.
