Have you ever lusted after a Royal Oak but wished it came in a more modest size? Well, your horological dreams are about to come true!
This 18k yellow gold beauty from 1986 combines the legendary looks of the original Royal Oak with a more classic 36mm case size. But that’s not all.. It’s also a bonafide complicated watch from one of the Grand Maisons d’Horlogerie!
This 25594BA features a cream-colored dial with Audemars Piguet’s iconic ‘Petite Tapisserie’ pattern, a day and date display in two large sub-registers at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions, and a moonphase indicator at 6 o’clock. The ref. 25594 has one of the most charming dial layouts we have ever seen, we like to call it the O-face.. ?
The watch has just been fully serviced by our trusted Audemars Piguet service center and comes with the corresponding service papers and an extract of the Audemars Piguet archives. The 18k yellow gold case, octagonal bezel, and integrated bracelet are in amazing condition, with crisp lines and a beautiful satin finish, though you should know that the fliplock clasp features some evidence of polishing.
Audemars 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.
