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. 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 extra flat cushion-shaped case has a snap on case back with a very beautiful textured finish. Secondly, the dial with this very clean natural light blue hardstone spreading all over, with applied baton indexes, elegant baton hands and signature at 12’oclock. Last but not least, the extra flat movement in perfect conditions.
