  • Catalogue Essay

    Audemars Piguet's first automatic perpetual calendar was released in 1978 - the thinnest version in the world, at the time. The possibilities were endless, and Audemars Piguet adorned its model with a variety of dial variants, ranging from simple white versions, to a fancy "Tuscan" finish and even gem-set designs.

    Powered by Audemars Piguet's famous caliber 2120, the present timepiece is cased in platinum and incredibly striking. Displaying a skeletonized dial, the month, day and date rings are rendered in blue, contrasting against the platinum case. At 36 millimeters, the case size is perfect for any occasion, whether discreetly worn under a shirt or a more flamboyant setting.

  • Artist Biography

    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.
