  • Catalogue Essay

    Debuting in 1992, this highly attractive Audemars Piguet minute repeater pioneered the integration of a jumping hour display - a complication pairing not seen before. The ingenious jump hour lends visual intrigue and mechanical novelty, echoing the dynamic Art Deco watches of the 1920s. The hour numerals rotate on a disk beneath an aperture, advancing precisely as the central minute hand aligns with each new hour. This clean, minimalist display, revealing only the hour through a small window, exemplifies the elegant functionalism that defined the Art Deco aesthetic.

    Audemars Piguet previously pioneered minute repeating wristwatches with jumping hours, most famously for John Wallace Shaeffer, Vice President of the Allied Chemical Corporation. This modern tribute from circa 2002 is offered in excellent overall condition, its repeater chiming with pleasing tone and clarity, in phase with the time display. The present watch carries forward the legacy of Audemars Piguet's most iconic jumping hour minute repeaters, bringing Art Deco inspiration into the modern era.

  • 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.
