As Alexandre Ghotbi, Head of Watches for Continental Europe and the Middle East at Phillips, stated, The Ref.15202ST serves as a remarkable ambassador for the Royal Oak collection, owing to its profound influence on both the brand and the community in recent years. When AP's CEO, François-Henry Bennahmias, declared the discontinuation of this reference, it propelled its prices to skyrocket by almost 70%.
The dial design of the previous version underwent several adjustments throughout the years, notably shifting the position of the 'AP' logo. However, the turning point in its historical development occurred with the launch of Ref. 15202 in 2000, followed by a reissue in 2012 to commemorate the model's 40th anniversary.
