  • Catalogue Essay

    The Equation of Time collection features a precise reading of daily variation and displays the difference between mean solar time and apparent solar time. The dial is fitted with four subsidiary dials indicating the month combined with moon phases, sunrise and sunset displays and date combined with day. The position and configuration of these indicators are inspired from the pocket watches by Audemars Piguet manufactured in 1925. The present watch, a special edition for Hong Kong, represents an astonishing compendium of mastery and technical skills.

  • 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.
