  • 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.

Ref. 25860ST.0.1110ST.01
The Royal Oak Chronograph ref 25860ST shares the full genetic codes of the original Royal Oak, as while it can be considered a sportier version than the time only model due to the presence of a chronograph function, it retains an incredibly elegant and suave presence that makes it one of the most versatile chronographs of its generation.This reference is nicknamed "Kasparov" by collectors as the legendary chess Grandmaster Garry Kasparov wore one during his professional games and would always remove it from his wrist prior to his last, winning moves. The present example, found in excellent condition is found with an Audemars Piguet box.
