  • Catalogue Essay

    The (Re) Master 01 Chronograph is everything Audemars Piguet enthusiasts and collectors had been waiting for and more. Amongst the historical Swiss brands Audemars Piguet was the only one without watches directly inspired from its glorious past (other than the Royal Oak). With the (Re) Master 01 Chronograph, launched in 2020, Audemars this changed and the brand brought back to life the reference 1533 chronograph from the 1940s (the original model was sold by Phillips Geneva on 10-11 Nov 2018) with all the design elements that made the watch such a stunner: tear drop lugs, two tone stainless steel and pink gold case, Audemars Piguet went as far as including the 45min indication on the minutes counter as well as reproducing its old brand signature: Audemars Piguet & Co, Genève.

    The 40mm case houses Audemars Piguet’s inhouse caliber 4409 automatic chronograph movement.

    Limited to 500 pieces and available only in Audemars Piguet boutiques, the (Re) Master 01 Chronograph hit all the right notes with collectors and immediately sold out. The present example in almost unworn condition is the very first example of this model to grace the international auction market and offers an incredible opportunity not to be passed.

  • 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.
