  • Catalogue Essay

    Audemars Piguet launched their first Royal Oak Chronograph in 1998 via the ref. 25860 equipped with the self-winding cal. 2385 based off the cal. 1185 by Frederic Piguet. An important asset to the Royal Oak Chronograph, the caliber was the thinnest self-winding chronograph movement ever made measuring a mere 5.5mm in thickness. Retaining its classic and slim profile of the original Royal Oak, the ref. 26300 was released in 2008 replacing its predecessor. While its aesthetics may look very similar to the ref. 25830, the ref. 26300 features a case that was completely re-designed and rebuilt with a three-piece case similar construction as the case of the Offshore.

    The present example Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph ref. 26300 features a beautiful and sporty tri-colored dial in pearly white finished with the manufacturer’s signature grande tappisserie pattern matched with red and gray accents. Offered in excellent overall condition and complete with its full set of accessories, the present example consigned from the original owner is a perfect watch for daily wear.

  • 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.
