In 1966, Audemars Piguet in conjunction with Jaeger LeCoultre and Vacheron Constantin, started working on creating an ultra-thin automatic movement. The present lot houses one of the most historically important movements ever made. From the mid-1950s, brands were searching for ways of proving their technical mastery, not only in complications but also in creating slim movements. The present gentleman wristwatch in steel has a classic appeal given its untouched matte silver with applied black bâton indexes and hands accented with a black lacquered finish. The very thin case is absolutely elegant, the screw case back is totally shiny and almost never worn.
