A specialist in the manufacture of complications since it was established in 1881, Audemars Piguet never ceases to impress with a rich history of creating bold, even audacious, timepieces underpinned by traditional watchmaking at its finest. Today, this iconic brand rose to prominence for its Royal Oak models, a revolutionary luxury sports watch launched in 1972 that is now one of the most sought-after specimens on the market. But despite the incredible success in recent years of this sport yet elegant model, Audemars Piguet also dared with the use of precious stones, in the specific diamonds, and precious material, such as platinum. The lot here offered is an incredibly elegant and precious creation that only masters are able to produce. The line is very simple, more similar to a bracelet than watch, with a “chain” style design made in platinum and embellished with baguette-shaped diamonds. Furthermore preserved in very good condition, the platinum case and structure are very nice and linked together by a thin chain that allows the wearer to not lose the bracelet easily. Splendid and graceful objects of art, this beautiful, fluid and luxurious platinum and diamond-set bracelet watch is an incredibly lavish example, perfectly capturing the spirit of the art deco period.
