Jewel watches represent a small but significant part of the history of watchmaking. It is precisely from the use of an old and small jewel watch tied to the wrist with a piece of cloth by a nurse in order to better control a child that the modern concert of a wristwatch was born. From that moment on, the production of women’s timepieces has progressed more and more, achieving absolutely excellent manufacturing results. 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. The present Audemars Piguet is a combination of elegance, refinement and innovation, as well as a remarkable demonstration of skill. The special bracelet in yellow gold with a unique leaf-decoration is linked to an even more special elliptical case equipped with a 46 diamonds with brilliant-cut bezel. The yellow-gold dial is exquisite with diamond-set chapter ring and sapphire numerals, lapis lazuli centrefield. Coming with the Original Audemars Piguet certificate of Origin and Warranty confirming the sale on February 12th, 1995, this lot is an absolutely enchanting piece.
