Launched at Baselworld in 1972 the Royal Oak represented a real novelty in the Audemars universe as it was the brand’s first true sporting pride. The origin of the name has distant roots, namely from the tree under which King Charles of England was hidden to save his life, which was called Royal Oak. The present example is a beautiful, automatic example of the ref. 25 654 with Perpetual Calendar, produced between 1982 and 1993, in a limited edition of 800 examples, including 422 in yellow gold, 272 in steel, 72 in two-tone, 33 in platinum, and one in white gold. This lot is really beautiful in all its aspect, from the two-tone bracelet with original AP deployant, passing to the case with the octagonal bezel and 8 gold screws, till finish with the dark tapiserie dial with the beautiful configuration with applied baton numerals, hands and with indication of day, date, moon phases and month. The distinctive design of this watch has now become extremely sought after and recognizable and the present lot with its sporty look is perfect for every occasion.
