The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak ‘Jumbo’, or ref.15202ST has consistently been one of our most loved – maybe even the favorite – tempered steel extravagance sports watches. Planned by Genta, this watch as of now has seen a great deal of inclusion here at Fratellowatches (most famous subjects here , here and here ). During the SIHH 2012 in Geneva, Audemars Piguet presented a suitable replacement of the current ‘Jumbo’ ref.15202ST, the ‘Jumbo’ ref.15202ST. That’s right, nothing changes in the naming or reference number, just the actual watch changes a minuscule bit.
Changed positively, as a ton of gatherers and lovers have yearned for these progressions for a long while. With this new form, AP returned this watch to its unique underlying foundations of 1972, with the company’s logo situated at 6 o’clock. The date wheel has been painted dark (rather than white) and the tapisserie has become somewhat more modest. Furthermore, AP dropped the printed Arabic numerals over the hour markers and made these hour markers somewhat more. The white edge around the date gap also disappeared. What remained, is the size of 39mm in distance across – it wears a tiny bit bigger however – and the wonderful type 2121 (in light of the 2120, which had no date). This development is still derrived from Jaeger-LeCoultre’s type 920, as presented in 1969. Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin likewise utilized this development for quite a while, however Audemars Piguet is the production qualified for use it (in permit). The etching on the rotor changed a piece, AP appears to have added a ‘hobnail’ motif to the monstrous gold weight.
Above, you’ll see a photograph or RJ’s 2006 ref.15202ST Royal Oak, the current ‘Jumbo’ with charcoal dial. There is no update yet on accessibility and evaluating of the new AP Royal Oak Jumbo. The current AP RO Jumbo ref.15202ST has a rundown cost of 17900,- EUR. We speculate that the new AP RO Jumbo will have a much more genuine sticker price. All things considered, we are dazzled by the new Jumbo.
