Did you miss out on that ultra, ultra rare Yves Klein RO I featured a few weeks ago? Well, fate and K2 Luxury have smiled upon your downtrodden spirits. This modern and quite rare 26613ST surfaced in the secondary market yesterday, call it your shot at redemption. It’s like the Yves Klein Perpetual just with more . . .Dubai in its blood.
Dubai watch week, back when public events were still a thing, introduced a whole swathe of the Middle East to horology investing. The market has been booming since the event was founded. In celebration and reciprocation, AP decided to release a limited-run Royal Oak Perpetual Extra-Thin worthy of top Emirate royalty. The model was really only made available to event organizers and those who had an extensive purchase history with Audemars (of the seven figure scale). They were sold out before they were even announced publicly. This is your first chance to make an offer.
The incredible turquoise Grande Tapisserie dial is an hommage to the lights of the Yas Marina F1 circuit, famed for bringing Abu Dhabi on the tourist’s map at its introduciton. The whole watch is in steel, as one would hope. The run was limited to 75 pieces, sold instantly. The case back is a display, as is often the case on modern AP LE runs. The rotor is engraved and gorgeous (google it). The piece was distributed at the start of 2020 and has been highly sought after having been spotted on a few VIPS.
The one on offer today is a safe queen with a documented history. It comes from K2 luxury, the best around. The only thing likely to stop you with this gorgeous RO perpetual is the price, likely to be measured in organs or family members sold to slavery.
Find this UAE Royal Oak Perpetual here from K2 Luxury for an undisclosed sum.
