    -Reference 25808ST is cased in stainless steel and displays a triple calendar complication and a striking green/turquoise dial. A sibling of the iconic Royal Oak, the present Royal Oak Offshore is a playful and sporty update on the original and iconic design.

    -The model was launched with a series of colorful and playful dials such as yellow, blue and orange.

    -Consigned by the original owner, the present lot is offered with its original guarantee dated December 27, 2000 and was sold at the Audemars Piguet boutique in Paris. Most notably, the Paris boutique had made an internal mistake and printed 25808ST.02 on the certificate, which corresponds to an orange dial. Correspondence with Audemars Piguet confirms the present watch was indeed originally sold with a green dial, and a new digital extract will accompany the watch confirming it is a reference 25808ST.06, corresponding to the current dial.

  • Artist Biography

    Audemars Piguet

    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.
