Today's offering showcases this handsome and classic thin Audemars Piguet mens dress watch in gorgeous original condition.
Featuring an elegant case with thin bezel and a classic dial (face), it possesses timeless elegance and class. And equipped with an extremely fine, original Audemars Piguet movement, it showcases top tier Swiss watchmaking. It has the same look as the ultra thin dress watches but without a cal. 2001 movement - this one is slightly thicker and higher grade.
Like only the very finest watches in the world - select watches from the likes of Patek, AP, and V & C, it is adjusted to five positions, heat, cold, and even isochronism (the amount of wind left in the movement).
It measures 33.4mm in diameter without the crown.
Epitomizing the essence of "'the classic watch" remembered today, watches like this made by Patek, Vacheron & AP feature a manually wound movement, round gold cases, understated dial, slender hands, and simple baton markers. As one writer aptly stated, "The extra-slim watch, whose style embraces only the strict essentials, has continued to seduce for its elegance and discretion."
We were fortunate to acquire it in such gorgeous all-original condition. All parts are original down to the dial, hands, winding crown, band, 18K gold buckle,and even the crystal!
This watch is as honest as they come, with 100% original parts and having never been polished - a time capsule type watch.
The case is just short of mint - the back of the body has slight remnants of wear from previous opening. Since it has never been polished it has a crisp hallmark and sharp lines. On the wrist it presents as beautiful mint.
The untouched original champagne dial is mint. One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it - it may have been the first servicing since leaving the factory.
For the finishing touch we have meticulously detailed it and installed a new band making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
As one of the finest names in watchmaking, Audemars Piguet commitment to quality and technical superiority is legendary. Long known for their highly-complicated watches, Audemars Piguet stands alongside Patek Philippe on the top echelon of premier watchmakers in the world.
