A specialist in the manufacture of complications 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. Today, this iconic brand rose to prominence for its Royal Oak models, a revolutionary luxury sports watch launched in 1972 that is now one of the most sought-after specimens on the market. But despite the incredible success in recent years of this sport yet elegant model, Audemars Piguet also dared with the use of precious stones, in the specific diamonds, and precious material, such as white gold. The lot here offered is an incredibly elegant and precious creation that only masters are able to produce. The line is very simple, more similar to a bracelet than watch, with five rows of brilliant cut diamonds at the center of which is located a square dial, that is set with a paved diamond decoration as well. Furthermore preserved in very good condition, the white-gold case and structure are very nice with still engravings and hallmarks. The total number of brilliant used on the bracelet is 266, a truly impressive number for a truly special jewel watch.
