  • Catalogue Essay

    When one thinks of the most wearable of grand complications, the perpetual calendar chronograph with moonphase immediately comes to mind. Immensely useful functions are beautifully and logically displayed on the broad dial, while the timing mechanism of the chronograph allows daily tasks to be monitored easily. When powered by an automatic movement, in this case the caliber 2126 / 2839 based on a Jaeger-LeCoultre ebauche and Dubois Depraz module, it becomes eminently more efficient.

    This absolutely impressive Audemars Piguet Huitiéme from 1994 is cased entirely in platinum with a solid caseback and fitted with a spectacular platinum five-link bracelet that will fit up to an 8 inch wrist. The dial is a splendid denim blue color, subtle enough to be worn every day but unique enough to set the wearer apart from the pack. Purchased by an important collector from Phillips’ Hong Kong Watch Auction: THREE sale in November 2016, he subsequently purchased all of the last remaining platinum bracelet links directly from Audemars Piguet, allowing the watch to fit even the largest wrist sizes.

    The present Audemars Piguet reference 25751PT on full platinum bracelet is further offered freshly serviced by Audemars Piguet, and is complete with its original Certificate of Origin and Guarantee.

    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.
