  • Catalogue Essay

    The Royal Oak can be described as the iron pillar of the manufacturer with an incredibly successful reception since launching its first model in 1972. Designed by Gerald Genta, it was the first of its kind and was the most expensive luxury timepiece in stainless steel. In 1993, Audemars Piguet introduced a modern iteration of the Royal Oak and featured a chronograph, pumped up case dimensions and was named the Royal Oak Offshore.

    In 1998, Audemars Piguet launched a limited edition ref. 25887ST.O.1010ST.01 to commemorate the Winter Olympics of 1998 which was held in Nagano, Japan. Featuring a triple calendar complication and fitted with an electrifying blue dial and only 98 examples produced, the reference is most certainly rare. The present example is numbered 85/98 and presented in excellent overall condition.

    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.
