  • Catalogue Essay

    A tribute to one of the founding fathers of the manufacture since 1875, Jules-Louis Audemars, during the 1990s, the brand released the Jules Audemars collection to honor his vision of creating mechanical perfection. A series where excellence meets elegance, the brand released reference 25685, a dual-time wristwatch with date and power reserve powered by the self-winding ultra-thin calibre 2129. Designed with simplicity and legibility in mind, the elegance of Roman numerals surround the two sunken registers, each displaying the second time zone and the date, as well as large fan shaped power reserve that sits on the left of the dial. The reference were available in white and blue, with an elevated variant in black with diamond hour markers.

    The present stunning example is not only fitted with an exceedingly rare black onyx dial with gorgeous silvered over-laid text, the hours are marked with sparkling diamonds. Heightening its exuberance the bezel is furthermore bedazzled with diamonds and is worn with the intricate beads of rice integrated bracelet. Highly exquisite and a rare specimen, the ref. 25754 not only wears with incredible comfort thanks to its slim profile, but also in sophisticated style. It is worth noting that the inner bezel is also stamped with "641" matching the case number of the watch.

    Preserved in absolutely attractive condition, the present timepiece is accompanied with its original guarantee and accessories. Interestingly, likely to be an oversight during the sale of the present timepiece, the movement is miswritten with a 387’992 serial instead of its correct 387’993 serial. Nevertheless, the Jules Audemars Dual-time Power Reserve is perfect for the discerned collector who is looking for a” not-your average” dress watch.
