A specialist in the manufacture of watches since it was established in 1881, Audemars Piguet and in 1966, in conjunction with Jaeger LeCoultre and Vacheron Constantin, started working on creating an ultra-thin automatic movement. 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 gentleman wristwatch in 18k white gold has a classic appeal given its untouched blue dial with applied white-gold baton indexes. The unusually shaped TV Tonneau case measuring 32 × 31 mm and appearing larger on the wrist is in flawless conditions. The very thin case is absolutely elegant and contains the iconic ultra thin caliber 2001.
