  • Catalogue Essay

    In 1984, Audemars Piguet merged two of their most iconic creations together, the perpetual calendar and the Royal Oak. Powered by the world’s thinnest legendary cal. 2120/2800 with a Jaeger-LeCoultre base, the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar was born and was a total revelation contributing to the overcoming of the quartz crisis. Early examples of the model featured a dial with the absence of a leap year indication manufactured from 1984 to 1993, and later models produced from 1995 onwards were featured with a leap year indicator.

    The reference 25820 made its appearance in 1998, powered by the cal. 2120/2802 with a leap year indication. Offered in both precious metal and stainless steel, the present example in stainless steel with a white grande tappiserie dial is a combination to please most. With clean aesthetics and strong legibility, the subtle contrast of the steel case against the white hue of the dial is second to none. The movement of the exceptional caliber is in full display from the sapphire caseback, hand-engraved with refined beauty, the rotor of the famous ultra-thin movement can be admired by the wearer. A perfect wristwatch for casual or formal wear, the versatility of the 39mm diameter case is impressive with a slim profile. Extremely well-preserved, the present timepiece is presented with its original warranty and full set of accessories. The most covet sports watch, an icon of our times, this discontinued ref. 25820 is certainly a must have in the collection of fine timepieces.
