  • Catalogue Essay

    The year 2022 denotes a momentous milestone for Audemars Piguet's most iconic collection - the 'Royal Oak'. Marking the iconic design's 50th anniversary, the manufacture celebrates Gerald Genta's audacious 1972 creation that captivated a new generation. Audemars Piguet succeeded with panache, experimenting with the famed monobloc case, octagonal bezel and distinctive hexagonal screws, paired with a tapisserie dial across sizes and executions. This encapsulated their spirit of innovation and mastery of complications.

    The revered ref. 25829 skeletonized perpetual calendar exemplifies this ethos. Fitted with the cal. 2120/2802 leap year indicator, it improves upon predecessors with refinement. Produced from 1996 to 2013, merely 156 were crafted in prestigious platinum like this outstanding example. Its spectacular skeletonized dial mesmerizes with artful openworking. Substantial yet balanced, this exceptional timepiece will bring joy to connoisseurs.

    This present example embodies the Royal Oak's enduring appeal, blending breakthrough design with artistic excellence. Born with the iconic case and perfected perpetual calendar complication and presented in barely worn condition, it satisfies every collectability criteria.
