Over the centuries 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. 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 with only 2.45 mm. 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 present timepiece is an example of superbly elegant dial design. The ultra-flat case in yellow gold with profiled lunette and matte-finished side is due to its ultra-thin movement and is charged by its crown with sapphire cabochon. At the center of which is the heart of the watch: extreme clarity and nearly perfect balance are expressed by a white dial with black Roman numerals, blued hands, date, months, leap year, day of week and moon phase indication. Precious jewel for its unique style, this watch is further proof of Audemars Piguet’s skill.
