Watches: Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo with “AP” at 6 O’Clock

This is the watch we’ve been waiting for.  You are looking at the new Royal Oak Jumbo, a fitting tribute to the 1972 original if there ever was one.  Sized at 39mm and using the same AP caliber 2120 that made the original the icon that it is, the new Jumbo will feature a few design traits reminiscent of the original.  You will, most noticeably, see that the “AP” logo has been moved from the 12 o’clock position back down to 6 o’clock, and the tapisserie is also smaller, just like it was on the original.

This watch will retain the reference 15202 despite the cosmetic changes, and it will only be available with a historically inspired blueish grey dial. The see-through sapphire caseback also remains, and there is new hand-finishing on the rotor.  The new 15202 will be available in stainless steel and rose gold.
