If you are looking for a modern watch that can be a forerunner of the desire to amaze on the part of the great watchmaking houses , for so many years plastered in a production that was perhaps too conservative in the style of the individual dial and thus the design of the case, We at the Bonanno Jewelers present today the Audemars Piguet 25829 ST(ST stands for steel, steel), a watch that brings together all the best of evolution in terms of style and innovation.


To best understand this Audemars Piguet 25829 ST, however, we need to digress a little, starting in the 1990s. A very inspiring decade for the way buyers, scholars, collectors but also manufacturers slowly rediscovered the charm and beauty of complex movement mechanics for timepieces, after the crisis of the innovative quartz.

A trend that would fully blossom in the 2000s. And the big maisons logically began to react to these signals. After the very conservative two decades of the 1970s and 1980s, in which dials were linear and beautiful but simple and uninnovative and the different designs limited to perhaps changing the case, we are finally beginning to see more imaginative and daring dials that win the favor of critics and the public.

Therefore, in the 1990s this avant-garde of the new leaves one speechless with the first dials that are immediately renamed skeletal, the result of this new trend that was practically nonexistent in the 1980s.

And three very important steps are taken, all the result of the maison perhaps at that time even more willing to amaze and to "spread the cards" in the market, precisely theAudemars Piguet .

In fact, in the 1990s, three models Audemars Piguet of the family Royal Oak thus featured a skeleton dial. But, you may ask, why this bold choice? Because the Royal Oak, with its masculine octagonal case, exposed screws and integrated bracelet is one of the most distinctive watches on the market!

So the three Royal Oak models, which will become nothing short of iconic like their early siblings released in the 1970s, are at this point Reference 14794, which is a time-only wristwatch, and Reference 25729, a pocket watch with a perpetual calendar and moon phases in perfect AP style.

The third is our Audemars Piguet 25829 ST which also enjoys its own pocket-sized counterpart and is a wonderful self-winding perpetual calendar watch that shows the day, date, moon phases, month and leap years.

Among other things, our Audemars Piguet 25829 ST is powered by caliber 2120/2802, to date the thinnest automatic perpetual calendar movement available on the market!

The aesthetic vision of our Audemars Piguet 25829 ST decisively steals the eye of anyone who looks at it for the first time. In fact, aesthetically speaking, our Audemars Piguet 25829 ST is immensely charismatic.

In fact, while at times these skeletal dials can be difficult to read, the design of this Audemars Piguet 25829 ST model thanks to the four cut-out dials is perfectly readable and moreover without sacrificing the openworks feel of the skeletal dial.

Moreover, this very high combination of sublime technical execution and unmistakable look has over time led the collector community to enshrine this model as one of the most interesting, attractive, and collectible complicated executions of Royal Oak.

Pure steel case 39 mm. and 9.3 mm. thick. , water-resistant to a depth of 20 m. and superbly visible thanks to the sapphire crystal and back, We at the Bonanno Jewelers await you at the headquarters to admire it up close!
