    Aesthetically speaking, reference 25829 is immensely charismatic. While sometimes skeletonized dials can be difficult to read, the design of this model, thanks to the four cutout subdials, is perfectly readable without sacrificing the openworks feel of the skeleton dial.

    The combination of sublime technical execution and unmistakable looks has over time led the collectors community to consecrate this model as one of the most interesting, attractive and collectible complicated Royal Oak executions; the presence of the original Guarantee and box furthermore increases the attractiveness and collectability of this example of the iconic reference.

    Swiss • 1881

    A specialist in the manufacture of complications since it was established in 1881, Audemars Piguet never ceases to impress with a rich history of creating bold, even audacious, timepieces underpinned by traditional watchmaking at its finest. This Le Brassus-based Swiss manufacturer is one of only two major manufacturers still owned by the founding family. Since its earliest days, AP is considered a leader in the field of minute repeaters and grande complication pocket and wristwatches. The brand is devoted to preserving the history of watchmaking in the Vallée de Joux, showcased at their superb museum in Le Brassus.


    Today, the brand is best known for its Royal Oak models, a revolutionary luxury sports watch launched in 1972. Other key models include early minute repeating wristwatches, vintage chronograph wristwatches, such as the oversized reference 5020, perpetual calendar watches and the Royal Oak Offshore, first introduced in 1993.
