  • Catalogue Essay

    Since its establishment in 1881, the Le Brassus-based manufacturer Audemars Piguet has been an admirable asset to the history and development of horology. Paying homage to one of the two founders, the firm launched the Jules Audemars collection in 1982 to respect the noble craft of traditional Swiss watchmaking. Encapsulating traditional craftsmanship fused along with contemporized elements, the result achieved is perhaps a timeless appeal.

    The Jules Audemars Tourbillon Chronographe is a perfect embodiment of the model line. Adopting a 43mm diameter case, the case alone features a blend of mirror polishing for the bezel and the top facet of the lugs with a brushed finish to complete the rest of the case. On the other hand, the dial has been designed rather conservatively with a perfectly symmetrical layout featuring 1-minute, 30-minute registers and a tourbillon carriage at 6 O’clock.

    Deploying a subtle and understated elegance, the present Audemars Piguet Tourbillon Chronographe in white gold is charmed by its full set of accessories and preserved in excellent overall condition. Underappreciated, this is a fantastic opportunity for collectors to acquire a high quality chronograph wristwatch by Audemars Piguet.

    The present lot is being sold to benefit The One Drop Foundation, a charity striving to provide safe drinking water to all communities.

  • 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.
