It was 1986 when Audemars Piguet unveiled its inaugural automatic chronograph wristwatch featuring a date indication. Originally introduced without a specific collection name, these timepieces earned the moniker “Huitieme” in certain market catalogues from 1988 onwards. The reference 25 644, a trailblazer in many aspects, was not only the pioneer AP model available in tantalum but also offered in yellow gold, platinum and steel variations like the present lot. Encased in a refined stainless steel frame, the current wristwatch showcases a warm white dial adorned with petite baton indexes and a contrasting black tachymeter scale. With hands and sub-counters mirroring the case color and positioned unconventionally at 6-9-12, the date window at three o’clock, this timepiece achieves a harmonious balance in both design and color palette. Bearing a “C” serial, this particular watch stands as an early specimen of this reference. Presented in very nice overall condition, this sophisticated steel Huitieme chronograph emerges as an ideal summer companion and stands out as a perfect purchase due to its historical importance, collectible nature, pioneering materials, elegant design and limited availability.
