This Audemars Piguet 25682OR proves that it is still possible to get into ultra-high end watchmaking at a relatively affordable price.When we think of Audemars Piguet nowadays, the first thing that comes to mind is the Royal Oak. But that obscures AP’s distinguished history of producing beautifully finished and highly complicated watches. One particularly important category are the wonderful perpetual calendar complications.An uncommon execution of the Audemars Piguet perpetual calendar could be found in the Edward Piguet collection. This line from the 1990s and 2000s was named after one of Audemars Piguet’s two co-founders and featured ultra luxurious watches in more classically minded shapes and dimensions.This ref. 25682OR is a great example with its art deco style rectangular case with soft corners and nice downturned lugs. The 18k rose-gold case material gives the watch a warm tone and the classic 27 x 35.5 mm dimensions (44.9 mm lug to lug) ensure an elegant fit.The ref. 25682 was made with a number of different dials. This mother of pearl is the rarest of them all and features elegant applied 18k rose-gold Breguet numerals and matching 18k gold leaf hands. The recessed sub dials are executed in dark pink Tahitian pearl and indicate the day, date, month, and phase of the moon.This 25657 dates back to the mid 2000s and runs on a manual wind movement. The burgundy alligator-leather Audemars Piguet strap comes with a 18k rose-gold Audemars Piguet folding clasp. The watch is accompanied by the original box and papers.

Introduction

Audemars PiguetAudemars Piguet is among the holy trinity Swiss maisons d’horlogerie alongside Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin. Audemars Piguet has a storied history of producing high-complication watches. It all started in 1875, when Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet founded the company in the heart of the Vallée de Joux, Le Brassus, Switzerland. This pure, rough and wild landscape, with deep, dark forests, ice-cold waters and the omnipresence of rocks and hills, provided inspiration and raw materials for the Swiss watch manufacture to develop the finest watches. Since its inception, Audemars Piguet has specialized in rare, valuable and highly-complicated watches like perpetual calendars, chronographs and chiming watches. Nowadays, the emphasis of Audemars Piguet lies on the iconic Royal Oak line.
