Offered here is a rare Nick Faldo Limited Edition of the much-appreciated Stainless-Steel 36mm AP Royal Oak in excellent condition. The reference 15190SP.OO.0789ST has a date display 3 o’clock.
Audemars Piguet, King of special editions, created three different Royal Oak watches to honour golf legend Nick Faldo. The first model came available in 1992, with reference 14790. A rose gold Royal Oak limited to 325 pieces. In 1997, Audemars Piguet introduced the Royal Oak Nick Faldo edition ref.15090, limited to 150 pieces in stainless steel. And last not but least, and probably the most recognizable Nick Faldo edition, is the 2002 Royal Oak ref. 15190, limited to 450 pieces. This last model has a platinum bezel and a stainless-steel case and bracelet. The 1997 model and the 2002 model both came with a Nick Faldo golf bag, and clubs by Mizuno. The golf clubs have the Nick Faldo signature and the AP logo, embedded in their famous octagonal shape.
Nick Faldo was one of European’s best golf players in the 1980s and 1990s, and recently presented with a Knighthood (Sir Nick Faldo) in recognition of an incredible sporting career. What most golfers probably do not know (except for the watch connoisseurs amongst them), is the long-time partnership between Nick Faldo and Audemars Piguet.
It has been nearly 50 years since the creation of the original Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and this now iconic watch is more popular than ever. First unveiled by Audemars Piguet in the 1970s and designed by Gerald Genta who also designed the Patek Philippe Nautilus, the Royal Oak has become a classic with its distinctive features and its role as a pioneer for a luxury sports watch.
The solid platinum octagonal bezel is secured by eight white gold screws and is highly polished to contrast the brush-finished 36mm stainless steel case. The Black 'Tapisserie' dial sports luminous Arabic numbers and bears the Royal Oak signature at 6 o'clock. The AP automatic 2225 calibre can be viewed through the exhibition caseback, where closer inspection of the rotor reveals Nick Faldo's personal signature.
This special limited-edition example of the Royal Oak 15190SP.OO.0789ST is in very good condition and appears to have been adored by its previous owner. The black dial is in beautiful condition and the Arabic white numbers and matching hands are all in excellent condition. The bracelet is in good tight condition with minimal stretch and free from any scratches and wear. The Platinum bezel ring and sapphire glass are free of any dings or scratches and enhance the overall appearance of this stunning 36mm Royal Oak.
This Limited-Edition Royal Oak is accompanied with its original Audemars Piguet box, manuals, guarantee and Nick Faldo edition Mizuno golf bag and irons.
