A specialist in the manufacture of watches 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. Known mainly for the Royal Oak, the lot here offered is an unconventional and elegant creation by Audemars Piguet. The material used is mainly white gold, lighter and less demanding compared to the yellow gold embodying the image of the perfect gentleman watch. Audemars Piguet has always maintained a fine balance between their offerings of bold and audacious timepieces as well as the more classical creations, like the present lot. This watch is a notable original piece, preserved in remarkable conditions with some features that make it special. First of all, the two-body white-gold tonneau-shaped case has a screw down back with brushed sharp facets and high polish finish. Secondly, the dial with this very clean silvered color spreading all over, with applied baton indexes, elegant baton hands and signature at 12’oclock. Last but not least, the automatic movement rhodium-plated, with 29 jewels, Breguet balance spring is in perfect conditions like the uncommon white-gold bracelet that match perfectly the case color.
