  • Catalogue Essay

    The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Quantieme Perpetual are among some of the most beloved and valued that the firm has produced over the decades since the mid-1980s. While most examples were cased in either a 36mm or a 39mm diameter case, it is not widely known that the second ever produced Royal Oak ref. 8638 was designed initially for the lady collector. The present example Royal Oak Quantieme Perpetual ref. 25800ST was designed mainly for ladies featuring an attractive 33mm diameter case.

    First released in 1996, the ref. 25800ST is most definitely one of the smallest perpetual calendar wristwatches ever produced. Well-balanced, attractive with good legibility, this is surely one of the most interesting and rare Royal Oak perpetual calendars of all time. Powered by the cal. 2141/2806, the movement was specifically designed for the present reference to cater towards its smaller case. The present example Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Quantieme Perpetual ref. 25800ST is offered in attractive overall condition that has been serviced by Audemars Piguet in the past.

  • 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.
