Our Opinion

Offered here is a beautiful example of the much-appreciated Yellow Gold 36mm AP Royal Oak. The reference 25572BA has 3 subsidiary dials at 3 and 9 for the date and day of the week, and the aperture at 6 is for the moon phase. Manufactured circa 1989.

This 18k Yellow Gold Royal Oak is known amongst collectors as the Audemars Piguet ‘Yves Klein’ dial, referring to the French Nouveau réalisme painter and monochromist recognized for the use of a distinctive ultramarine hue.

It has been nearly 50 years since the creation of the original Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and this now iconic watch is more popular than ever. First unveiled by Audemars Piguet in the 1970s and designed by Gerald Genta who also designed the Patek Philippe Nautilus, the Royal Oak has become a distinctive classic with its distinctive features and its role as a pioneer for a luxury sports watch.

The reference 25572 ’BA’ specifies the watch is made from 18k Yellow Gold.

This example has the distinctive ‘BLUE - YVES KLEIN’ Tapisserie dial, with display windows indicating the date at the 3 o’clock position, the day at the 9 o’clock position and the phase of the moon at 6 o’clock.

The 18k yellow gold hour markers along with 18k yellow-gold hands and luminescent inserts, really compliment this idiosyncratic ‘BLUE - YVES KLEIN’ dial.

The overall condition of this Royal Oak 25572BA is excellent and must have been prized by its previous owner.
The Tapisserie ‘BLUE - YVES KLEIN’ dial, gold baton markers and hands are all in flawless condition. The 18k Yellow Gold bracelet is in very good condition with minimal stretch and free from any scratches and significant wear. The 18k Yellow Gold polished bezel ring and sapphire glass are free of any dings or scratches and further enhance the overall appearance of this stunning 36mm Royal Oak.
This stunning ‘BLUE - YVES KLEIN’ Day-Date Royal Oak is accompanied by its original Audemars Piguet box, service card & service box.
