DETAILS

Case in 18k rose gold, diameter 39mm, thickness 9.3mm, transparent sapphire dial (a so-called ‘skeleton dial’), blackened gold ‘leaf’ hour and minute hands, sapphire caseback. Caliber 2120/2800SQ, self-winding, open-worked rotor with an inertial segment in 21k yellow gold, ultra-thin, with a power reserve of up to 40 hours. Functions – indication of time in hours and minutes, perpetual calendar with indicators of date at 3 o’clock, day of the week at 9 o’clock, month at 12 o’clock, and moon phase at 6 o’clock. Royal Oak bracelet in 18k rose gold, Audemars Piguet ‘AP’ double folding clasp. 

REASONS TO BUY

Ref. 25829OR comes up for auction very rarely and will therefore be a very attractive purchase for a collector, who will obtain a charming and very rare complicated mechanical watch from a world-famous traditional watch brand, one of the undoubted leaders in the haute horlogerie watch market. With the recent rush for Royal Oak Perpetual Calendars, this is a perfect chance for collectors to acquire a classic reference that communicates a certain era in the development of the Royal Oak collection – from 1997 to 2014, when the dial of the perpetual calendar had the classic indicator of a leap year, but was still without the central hand of the indicator of the week of the year, which is a customary feature of modern models made on the basis of clones of caliber 2120/2800. The collector’s value of this watch is undoubtedly enhanced by the transparent dial with leaf-shaped hands, which is very rare to the models of the Royal Oak collection, as well as the attractive all-rose gold execution.
