  • Catalogue Essay

    The year 2022 marks a very special milestone for Audemars Piguet on its most iconic collection in their arsenal, the ‘Royal Oak’. The brand celebrates the 50th anniversary of Royal Oak designed by the great Gerald Genta with the hope of capturing the hearts of a new generation of clients and collectors with the bold and futuristic design in 1972. Audemars Piguet succeeded with style, experimenting with the famous monobloc case, octagonal bezel secured by eight distinctive hexagonal screws with a tapisserie finished dial in many sizes and executions and a large range of complications.

    The iconic reference 25829 is a skeletonize perpetual calendar that is super attractive. Fitted on with the calibre 2120/2802 that features a leap year indicator a nice upgrade from the predecessors. Made through from 1996 to 2013, only 156 are made in platinum like the present lot. The spectacular look of the skeletonized dial is extremely mesmerizing. A pleasing hefty watch will most certainly put a smile on any discerning collector.

    It ticks all the boxes with the right elements that scream desirability for collecting. The present lot reference 25829PT is a timepiece that was born with the enduring case design and a complication executed with perfection and artistic mastery is further complemented with all of the accessories.
