In 1978 Audemars Piguet revealed its first automatic perpetual calendar that was, at that time, the thinnest specimen ever produced around the globe. From that moment on, the variants explored have been numerous, applied to the most iconic models today such as the Royal Oak or even adorned with a variety of dial configurations, ranging from simple white versions of precious diamonds-set. The example here offered is surely one of the most glizzering and precious for Audemars. The watch, encased in yellow gold, is very heavy and adorned with the original factory pave-set diamond dial for a total diamond weight of approximately 1.80 cts. The circular case is nicely preserved and is embellished with Audemars Piguet’s diamond-set bezel composed of 60 brilliant-cut stones. Powered by Audemars Piguet’s famous caliber 2120, the present timepiece is further preserved in excellent overall condition and with its 36 mm case size is the perfect size for both man and women.
