  • Catalogue Essay

    Paying homage to one of the two founders of the manufacturer Jules Audemars, the firm launched its line to commemorate the traditional craftsmanship and pioneer in the field of complications in 1982. Characterized and inspired by traditional Swiss watchmaking culture, the collection also embodies some contemporary elements creating a balanced and aesthetically pleasing design catering towards the modern collector of fine timepieces.

    Since its initial launch of its first timepiece in the Jules Audemars collection in 1982, various models with diverse complications ranging from chronographs, minute repeaters and tourbillon wristwatches were added to the collection. Distinguished by its classic round case design, the Jules Audemars collection of timepieces defies the elegant and fluid lines of a traditional case.

    The present Jules Audemars Tourbillon Chronographe in white gold deploys essence of its original founder. Encased in a large 43mm diameter white gold case with tremendous finishing and attention to detail, the polished bezel against the satin brushed case band creates a beautiful contrast and depth towards its case. Featuring a tourbillon escapement, the chronograph wristwatch allows the wearer to enjoy the intricate craftsmanship of the tourbillon escapement whilst it oscillates beautifully in its cage. Presented in excellent overall condition with an unpolished case, this present example is most certainly attractive.

    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.
