It was 1875 when Jules Louis Audemars joined forces with Edward Auguste Piguet. They worked together to develop watches equipped with complex mechanisms and precision still found in the watches today. In 1957 was introduced the first Audemars Piguet wristwatch with a perpetual calendar and in 1967, the thinnest self-winding caliber with a central rotor was released at only 2.45 mm. The here beautiful and very rare Audemars Piguet dual time from the exclusive Jules Audemars line pays homage to that tradition, made in platinum with the reference 25685. The heart of this watch is the legendary high quality ultra thin caliber 2129 automatic movement. The dial of a beautiful creamy white is in perfect condition with the delicacy of the lines that make up the painted Roman numbers. Elegance and rarity are the dominant elements of this absolutely unique watch, which make it the ultimate Audemars Piguet creations.
