25654ST, Salmon Dial Royal Oak Quantième Perpétuel, Steel
A ref. 25654ST Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar, one of the earliest (pre-leap year indication) Quantième Perpétuels of which just 272 were produced in steel. This example features an extremely attractive and vanishingly rare mark 2 salmon dial, with no tapisserie. The 25654 embodies everything modern Audemars Piguet holds dear: bravery in ambition, classic sporting design from Genta, and masterful technical complication. For that and its sheer beauty, the 25654 is generally regarded as one of the, if not the, most desirable Royal Oaks ever.
