  • Catalogue Essay

    Among the myriad variations of the Royal Oak introduced since its inception in 1972, those with perpetual calendar stand out as one of the most coveted within the Royal Oak lineup. Several factors contribute to its allure: the incongruity of having a perpetual calendar in a luxury sports watch, the horological sophistication of the complication which has long been regarded as a pinnacle of watchmaking, the inherent rarity bestowed upon these timepieces due to their labor-intensive movements, and the exquisite aesthetic harmony of the resulting dial configuration. The present reference 26574 in stunning pink gold boasts a striking contrast with its deep blue dial, creating a visually captivating effect against the warm tones of the gold case.

    Offered in brand new condition with all original factory stickers and plastic guard in place, the watch is accompanied by its original guarantee card, winding box, and outer packaging, making it an exceptional opportunity for discerning collectors.

    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.
