  • 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.

Ref. 26227BC.YY.D326CR.01-A
Audemars Piguet's Concept series has been at the very forefront of mechanical watch design since the turn of the millennium. Their history of gem setting is second to none, and their production of the self-winding tourbillon wristwatch is venerated in the industry. Combining this expertise in one dazzling timepiece is no mean feat, but the Concept Flying Tourbillon “Rainbow” again proves AP's mastery of the craft. With 468 gemstones of 12 different types having all been colour matched, graded, and set with precision, including on the front of the lightweight flying tourbillon cage itself. The 38mm white gold case curves elegantly and hugs the wrist tightly, right through to the gem set folding clasp. Sourced from a private collector, this 26227BC is currently the only example available for sale internationally, and comes complete with the original box, warranty card, additional rubber strap, and booklets.
