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. Over the years Audemars Piguet has been a source of inspiration and an example for many watch brands due to the incredible innovations, it has been able to bring and for the large number of challenges it has faced. Already in 1892 they created the first minute repeating movement for history’s wristwatch. In 1934 the first skeletonized pocket watch was produced and in 1946 came the thinnest wristwatch. Watchmaking milestone, Audemars Piguet deserves a place of honor in every self-respecting collection, and the pocket watch here offered is one of those objects that best represents the AP ability in terms of aesthetics and quality. The thin hexagonal asymmetric case in yellow gold on both sides presents a diamond-set edge decoration a fantastic bramble in gold motif, in the middle of which is the heart of the watch: a skeleton movement with gunmetal-colored feuille hands. This Precious is, furthermore, embellished by its yellow-gold chain with diamonds at the top, jewel for its unique style, this watch is further proof of Audemars Piguet’s skill.
