  • Catalogue Essay

    In 1995, Audemars Piguet celebrated its 120th anniversary, and as a tradition in the watch industry, the brand launched a commemorative timepiece. The chosen wristwatch was none other than the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar. Importantly, the present ref. 25810, limited to 120 pieces, impressively incorporates the sophisticated perpetual calendar complication within the same 39mm case size as the original Royal Oak. The pink gold case is complemented by a matching pink gold dial, where the sunburst sub-dials on the watch create a beautiful contrast against the matte dial surface.

    Notably, the moon phase register on the dial bears the inscription "1875-1995," commemorating the brand's 120th anniversary. Another elegant touch is the intricately hand-engraved skeletonized 21-carat rotor, adorned with the number "120". Powering the watch is Audemars Piguet's self-winding calibre 2120, which boasts a contemporary weekly indication encircling the dial's edge and a classic leap year indication at the month register.

    The present example of the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar from 1995 is well-preserved and comes with all its accessories. It is an elegant, luxurious, and historically significant timepiece that would make a perfect addition for lovers and collectors of the Royal Oak collection.
