Launched in 2000 as an homage to the Audemars Piguet timepieces that have come before it, the Audemars Piguet Museum Collection Regulator 25845BC.O.0002.01, a rare find in the world of horology. Made of 18kt white gold and boasting a rectangular case design, it wears with an understated sense of style that is befitting of its status as a regulator watch, an unconventional beast in and of itself. Boasting a pristine white dial punctuated by faceted backened gold baton hands, white gold indices, and stark black quarter-hour Arabic numerals, the ref. 25845BC showcases a beautiful synergy between elegance, exclusivity, and expert craftsmanship. A regulator watch, as its name suggests, the 25845BC features a regulator dial and thus uses its central hands to display the minutes with the hours displayed in its subdial at 1 o' clock and the seconds in its subdial at 6 o' clock. Featuring a fittingly understated 18kt white gold case to match its understated white dial, the ref. 25845BC wears wonderfully on the wrist thanks to its 38mm x 29mm measurements sitting in line with modern style. Launched as a limited edition of just 2000 pieces, the ref. 25845BC is a true collectors piece that embraces traditional aesthetic and blends it with modern proportions and craftsmanship to create a truly special piece that is far outside of what modern AP has come to signify.

Watch is in overall very good condition. Case exhibits scratches along the surface. Most are superficial but there is one small nick on the 12 o'clock case side. Caseback has minor scratches but the hallmarks are crisp and visible. The screw holes have minor wear. Watch comes with original AP WG buckle.
Please Note: Due to CITES considerations, if the watch is to be shipped outside of the USA, the exotic skin strap will have to be removed.
Blending vintage inspiration with modern proportions and craftsmanship, the ref. 25845BC is a truly special piece that is far outside of what modern AP has come to signify with regards to their sports watch-heavy lineup and move away from these kinds of elegant dress watches that let only their artisanal craftsmanship do the talking.
