Audemars Piguet: Technically the square indices indicate precious metal, since this model came in WG, YG and RG variants.

They also did a limited edition variant in platinum and steel, which has the square indices.

Audemars Piguet: Looks like a 26022BC with aftermarket bracelet

I have this model, but with the original factory strap in black. Great watch with a nice solid and weighty feel.

Audemars Piguet: Tradition d'Excellence Cabinet Piece No 4

This won't be re-released. It was a limited edition of 20. It was piece 4 of a wider series of 8 cabinet pieces, each of which demonstrated a different aspect of AP's master watchmaking ability. IMO this is the best RO ever made.

Audemars Piguet: Looks great

I may be mistaken, but I think the first green dial tapisserie may have been in the early 1990s RO date models (14800 and 66800) - those were also yellow gold. It's so great to see this colour combination back.

Audemars Piguet: Case construction

Hi - by case construction, I meant whether the hex screws and nuts are decorative (like on the 25860) or if they are functional and extend all the way through the case (like on the 26300).

Audemars Piguet: Looks great

I have the 26022 but my phone camera doesn't take good pics. Were you able to dig up any information about which 26xxx ROCs have the older case construction? I also have a 26103 and it would be good to know which construction that one has.

Audemars Piguet: Additional information would be very welcome

My understanding was the same as yours, but I recently asked a very similar question on TZ and I was told that reference 26xxx denotes the new case.

Audemars Piguet: I have the 26022

The difference is in the case construction. The 25960 uses the older style construction, where the hex screws and nuts are decorative rather than functional. On the 26022 they extend through the entirety of the case.

Audemars Piguet: Great review!

What a great post, thank you for taking the time to do such a fantastic review. The watch looks amazing. I had one question. Does your 26300 have a 25860 dial swapped into it? Or is your 26300 one of the 'rare' models that was released during the transition phase, i.e. I heard there were some initia
