For collectors, perpetual calendar wristwatches produced by Audemars Piguet are certainly worth collecting. Launched in the 1990s, the Edward Piguet collection is named after one of the two founding fathers of the manufacture—Jules-Louis Audemars and Edward-Auguste Piguet. This family of watches borrow their design aesthetic from a historic tank design wristwatch that the brand made in the 1920s and was equipped with the perpetual calendar and moon phase complication. This reference 25758OR has an evident Art Deco inspiration for the creation of the curved rectangular pink gold case that is elegant, sophisticated and embellished with 22 brilliant-cut diamonds on each side. The dial is perfectly balanced with attractive applied Breguet numbers and the gilt printing really stand out against the mat black dial. Marking an important position in the line of watches produced by the firm, perpetual calendar wristwatches from Audemars Piguet are considered by many as the worthiest in terms of craftsmanship and aesthetics plus, the example here offered is a very rare combination of pink gold and diamonds rarely seen on such watches.
