To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the launch of the Royal Oak, Audemars Piguet released the Royal Oak Jubilee reference 14802 as a limited edition in 1992. Only 1'000 pieces were made in total, including different case metals such as stainless steel and yellow gold. Of the likely around 700 pieces made in stainless steel, the majority were equipped with a cobalt blue dial while far less were equipped with a highly attractive salmon tapisserie dial such as the present example.
The reference 14802 stays true to its predecessor with an attractive slim case and size of only 39 mm. Its main difference is the sapphire crystal display back enabling the wearer to gaze into the movement and admire the specially designed 21k gold rotor featuring various design elements from Gérald Genta including the iconic octagonal bezel of the Royal Oak as well as the hexagonal bolts used to secure the bezel to the case.
