Over the years, the collection has evolved to offer a wide selection of materials, complications, and case sizes, ensuring that it caters to the preferences of all watch collectors.

    - The Royal Oak ref. 25594 features a practical day and date function, housed within a mid-sized 36mm case. Additionally, it showcases the elegant moon phases positioned at 6 o'clock. Affectionately known as "The Owl", the arrangement of these three complications on the dial resembles the face of the majestic animal.

Accompanied by its original certificate and presentation box, this timepiece holds immense collectible value in today’s world where finding another example in such remarkable condition is exceedingly rare. Moreover, given the current market has shifted its demand for smaller watches, it serves as a perfect unisex timepiece suitable for any occasion.

This Le Brassus-based Swiss manufacturer is one of only two major manufacturers still owned by the founding family.

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.
