Audemars Piguet, Royal Oak Day-Date Moon Phase, Ref. 25594SA

$27,500.00 USD

Reference 25594SA is a turning point in the history of Royal Oak. Audemars Piguet decided on 36mm as a mid-sized Jumbo equivalent in 1992, and this case width lasted for ten years.
This watch has a beautiful, rich cream-toned dial with subdials for day, date, and moon phases. The "SA" on the reference number denotes that this piece is composed of stainless steel and yellow gold, with an 18K yellow gold bezel secured by eight white gold screws. The integral, articulated, two-tone Royal Oak bracelet and completed with stainless steel folding Audemars Piguet clasp. The dial displays three complications; the sub-register at 9 o'clock registers the current day, the one at 3 o'clock shows the date, and the moon phase aperture is at six o'clock. It is easy to see why so many watch enthusiasts consider the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak the holy grail of timepieces as it exemplifies sporty-casual design and Swiss watchmaking of the highest caliber.
Overall, this timepiece is in excellent condition, with only a few minor surface blemishes on the case and bracelet that are consistent with light use.

This Audemars Piguet Royal Oak ref. 25594 SA has a mechanical automatic Audemars Piguet caliber 2124 movement rhodium-plated, with fausses cotes embellishment. The rotor is mounted on a ball bearing with a peripheral mass in 22K gold. It has a round shape, 26mm diameter, and thickness of 4.55 mm. It is constructed with a smooth balance in Glucydur, 33 rubies (escapement wheel with end stone), a flat balance-spring in Nivarox 1 with an adjustment device with a micrometric screw, Kif anti-shock. The plate is perlage decorated, the bridge and rotor are Vagues de Genève decorated, and Anglage finished, the screw heads are mirror-polished.
This ref. 25594 SA powered by the self-winding caliber 2124/2825 was introduced around 1984. The 2825 moon phase and day date modifiers are put on the base 2124 auto with date window movement, a JLC base caliber fine finished and adjusted at AP.
The screw-down crown controls ALL functions - day, date, moon phase, and of course, the hour and minutes.
Defining the crown positions as follows:
P0 = crown pushed in all the way
P1 = crown out first detente position
P2 = crown out second detente position, or fully out
P0 is a neutral position and allows to wound the automatic movement manually.
P1 = moon phase setting; turning the crown upward (toward 12) advances the moon phase without affecting other settings or functions.
P2 = in this position, the crown directly controls the hour and minute hands. Thus, at 12 am indicated, the date advances, and at 1:30 am, the day of the week advances. As a result, when you set the time manually, through its 24-hour cycle, the date advances at midnight every day, while the day of the week advances an hour later.
This mechanism oscillates at the frequency of 21,600 vph (3 Hz).
Case, dial, and movement are all signed.

Exceptional service! I am so happy with my purchase. Because of the pandemic I had to rely on photos rather than visiting in person. In every way Twain Time exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend them.

Daniel Lee

I just wanted to highlight their commitment to customer service, even during these pandemic times. My entire experience was terrific - from start to finish. They are incredibly knowledgeable and really want to understand what the client wants, never pushing the sale. Regarding the condition of my watch - I was very happy to see that the watch came in impeccable condition, even better than the description on their website. I dealt directly with Ornella and found her very helpful and caring as well. I bought my watch through the phone and she took care of me during the entire process. Highly, highly recommend Twain Time.

Erik Barrios

I came across Twain Time's Instagram account and saw that they were listing a watch I had been looking for. They were very responsive to inquiries and readily provided additional information about the piece (including condition, service history, additional pictures, etc.). When I received the watch, the condition was as good as described and they encouraged me to contact them if there were any issues after the fact. I would happily deal with them again.
