  • Catalogue Essay

    In 1907, Audemars Piguet created a unique minute repeating wristwatch for the famed American industrialist John Shaeffer, Vice President of the Allied Chemical Corporation, located in Morristown, New Jersey. This timepiece later inspired Audemars Piguet's "John Shaeffer" series that was launched in the 1990s.

    The present watch is a 1990s re-interpretation of the now-iconic wristwatch. Displaying Breguet numerals and subsidiary seconds at 6 o'clock, this minute repeating model chimes with great tone and clarity. Cased in platinum, it is furthermore heavy and substantial on the wrist while being subtle and sophisticated.

    Audemars Piguet

    Swiss • 1881

    A specialist in the manufacture of complications since it was established in 1881, Audemars Piguet never ceases to impress with a rich history of creating bold, even audacious, timepieces underpinned by traditional watchmaking at its finest. This Le Brassus-based Swiss manufacturer is one of only two major manufacturers still owned by the founding family. Since its earliest days, AP is considered a leader in the field of minute repeaters and grande complication pocket and wristwatches. The brand is devoted to preserving the history of watchmaking in the Vallée de Joux, showcased at their superb museum in Le Brassus.

    Today, the brand is best known for its Royal Oak models, a revolutionary luxury sports watch launched in 1972. Other key models include early minute repeating wristwatches, vintage chronograph wristwatches, such as the oversized reference 5020, perpetual calendar watches and the Royal Oak Offshore, first introduced in 1993.
