The history of Audemars Piguet and the Royal Oak is written in watchmaking tradition. In 1972, Gérald Genta designed a new watch that disrupted the norms on which the industry was based. Over time, he gradually helped to build a resurgence within Swiss watchmaking, firmly establishing a new appreciation for steel.

Twenty years after presenting the Royal Oak, Audemars Piguet asked 22-year-old watch designer Emmanuel Gueit to design a more modern and masculine version of this iconic watch. The result was the Royal Oak Offshore, which the company announced at Baselworld 1993 as the famous "Beast" of 42mm reference 25721, a bold and large watch for its time. At its launch, it was said that the original design that Genta had created for the Royal Oak had been destroyed. The acceptance of the concept was revolutionary, and the Off-Shore model proved to be a great success. Emmanuel designed a second watch in 1996, the 25808 reference with the triple calendar complication.

The present watch comes from the original owner, has never been polished, and bears a very rare 2-digit serial number, suggesting it is one of the first pieces manufactured for this reference, making it an authentic collector's item.
