Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 25572BA Day-date “The Owl” Mint Condition
Royal Oak Day Date “The Owl” Dial
The symmetrical dial of the Royal Oak 25572BA is rendered in a creme color, which complements the gold accents found throughout the watch. It retains the more understated “Petite Tapisserie” pattern, forming the square and lozenge motif, as seen in earlier executions of the Royal Oak. Newer versions of the Royal Oak have since adopted the manufacture’s bolder “Tapisserie Evolutive” dial pattern, less faithful to the original design.
The flat “Audemars Piguet” font is also reminiscent of the one found on the reference 5402, further imbuing this piece with a certain vintage charm. Two dark silver counters stand out against the off white backdrop, displaying the day and date in an intuitive way, at 3 and 9 o’clock. These counters have developed slight oxidation over time, which creates a certain warmth as they interact with the light. Evidence suggests the dial was manufactured by Stern Créations, the storied manufacturer which also produced dials for the Patek Philippe Nautilus and the Rolex “Stella” models, among others.
