Watches set with precious stones represent a small but significant part of the history of watchmaking that in modern days have gained more and more interest. The present Audemars Piguet is a combination of elegance, refinement and innovation, as well as a remarkable demonstration of skill. The integrated 18k white-gold bracelet has a very special structure of great effect, capable of being at the same time very robust but also delicate with its thin mesh. The white gold ultra thin circular case has a stepped bezel while the back has a crystal that allows you to see the whole movement. The dial is skeletonized as well with very thin baton hands and on the outer part is offered a splendid and possibly unique double pavé-sapphire ring. Fascinating and glamorous, the present watch is offered in remarkable conditions and quality.
