Gold Audemars Piguet Ref. BA 25589 vintage wristwatch, circa 1990
A very fine 18ct gold automatic calendar wristwatch with indications for day, date and moon-phases, with Audemars Piguet strap and gold buckle
In almost unused condition, this exceptional calendar wristwatch is sold with an Audemars Piguet leather strap and an 18ct gold Audemars Piguet pin buckle. As with all our watches, this wristwatch has been fully serviced and overhauled and it is presented in a modern Audemars Piguet leather presentation box.
Ref. 25589 houses the superb Audemars Piguet calibre 2124 calendar movement which is beautifully finished with damascened plates and incorporates 33 jewels and a gold rimmed automatic rotor. The indications for day, date and moon automatically advance each day but the movement also incorporates an ingenious setting system allowing all indications to be manually corrected via the crown; this means that there are no calendar corrector pushers to the case sides ensuring an uninterrupted flow to the case’s design.
