The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Japan Edition, crafted in 1997 to honor the brand’s 50th anniversary in Japan, is a masterpiece that seamlessly combines luxury and significance.

The reference 15050 is a variant of reference 15000, distinguished by the appended “50” in the reference number, signifying the presence of an open caseback for this particular timepiece.

Fashioned from 18k yellow gold, this timepiece is a symbol of opulence and meticulous craftsmanship. The unique tapisserie dial, set apart by a distinctive matte chapter ring displaying index markers, adds an extra layer of sophistication to its design.

With a refined 34mm case diameter, this timepiece appears larger on the wrist, thanks to its well-designed case shape. While the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal ensures durability and provides a clear view of the intricate dial.

Notably well-preserved, the watch retains its original bevelled edges and thick bezel (unpolished). The unpolished bracelet remains stiff and sharp, reflecting the watch’s exceptional condition.

This Royal Oak Japan Edition houses the self-winding calibre 2140, marking a departure from the quartz movement often associated with smaller-sized royal oaks. The engraved “50” on the rotor commemorates Audemars Piguet’s half-century celebration in Japan.

Presented as a full set with an undated warranty, this timepiece is not just a watch; it’s a collector’s item that encapsulates the brand’s commitment to excellence and the artistry of horology. The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Japan Edition is a rare gem that combines elegance with historical significance.

The price includes Swiss VAT of 8.1%, which can be directly deducted for export, and the shipping cost comes with full worldwide insurance. Please note that the customer will be responsible for paying any customs duties in their country.

We’ve tested the watch to ensure proper functioning. On average, it runs +1 second per day, amplitude of 220 degrees, and beat error of 0.0ms. These results were tested with one of our instruments and serve as an indication of good performance, but we cannot guarantee precision, accuracy, or waterproofness.

If you desire a complete service, we can provide it at an additional cost, with a warranty of at least one year for precision and accuracy (not for waterproofness).
