  • Catalogue Essay

    The Royal Oak Dual Time reference 25730TT speaks of the innovative approach on Audemars Piguet's use of extraordinary material. Rarely ever used in watchmaking, the model is crafted in a bi-metal tantalum and stainless steel— an expensive material traditionally used in the medical and aerospace fields — are known to be notoriously hard to work with but provides a high resistant from corrosion with extreme durability.

    The present example ref. 25730TT features an attractive matte black tapisserie dial that contrasts phenomenally against its two tone tantalum and stainless steel case. Presented in excellent overall condition boasting a crisp case and a lengthy bracelet, it is also full set with its original papers and presentation box. With the 50th anniversary of the Royal Oak this year, it is a great opportunity for collectors and lovers of the Royal Oak to acquire this beautiful Dual Time now.
