  • Catalogue Essay

    Housing the ultra thin caliber 2003, this skeletonized open face pendant watch features very intricate engravings. While the dial-side is engraved with bamboo shoots and leaves, the reverse is decorated hand engraved chase work. The sapphire crystal is signed Audemars Piguet as to not disrupt the undulating leaves.

    Given the confines of the 29 millimeter case, it is absolutely astounding, but not surprising, that Aumdemars Piguet could work at this level of craftsmanship.

  • 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.
