It is completely logical that today, when it is heard the name Audemars Piguet, the thoughts of almost every watch passionate immediately goes to the Royal Oak and its many variations, but historically they have had a long tradition in horological excellence with complicated watches and bald, elegant design. Their technical skill and knowledge were also declined on some simple yet extremely valid pocket watches, maybe not too shiny or extravagant but of an immediate impact. Is this the case of the tasteful specimen here offered: with a thin circular case fully realized in pink gold with a snap on the back. The dial recalls the color of the case with a two-tone pink surface, black-painted batons and Arabic numbers. With the charm that only pink-on-ink is able to spread, this very pocket watch is also accompanied with the original certificate of manufacture and quality.
