Founded in 1875 by Jules Audemars and Edward-August Piguet, the Swiss manufacture known today as Audemars Piguet is part of the rare fine watchmaking companies still held by the families of their founding partners. Audemars Piguet probably has one of the most illustrious stories in the production of perpetual calendars for wristwatches; many vintage models represent some of the rarest watches in circulation and real chimeras for the great collectors, but even the most modern models have reached the status of a collector’s watches. The present perpetual calendar wristwatch, cased in platinum, is extremely impressive and notable. The watch houses an automatic movement that powers one of the most desirable complications including a perpetual calendar, chronograph and moon phase. This Audemars Piguet Quantieme Perpetuel calendar chronograph model 25695 features a 40 mm platinum case and displays Day, Date, Month, leap year, moonphases, and chronograph for 30 minute and 12 hour. Embellished by very nice red Arabic numerals, this watch is one of the nicest and most rare that you could find at auction. For a similar watch please also see lot 149 in this auction.
