  • Catalogue Essay

    Manufacturers such as Audemars Piguet who have been producing wristwatches for a long period of time have witnessed many changes in trends. It is evident that the present piece is definitely something out of the ordinary. The case is rectangular with an unusual almost hooded design in between flexible lugs. The case itself is enough to captivate the mind of a collector fond of unique case designs. However, this present example is further fitted with a tourbillon in the movement, which provides the current example with an exemplified appeal.

  • 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.
