When you think of Audemars Piguet, there’s a good chance you’re imagining a Royal Oak. But, make no mistake, Audemars Piguet has a distinguished history of producing exquisite dress watches.This lovely example from the late 1960s or early 1970s slightly resembles the coin-style watches made famous by Corum. The 35 mm wide 18k yellow-gold case features elegant thin lugs and a bold bezel with an inner engine-turned ring (reminiscent of Rolex’ engine turned bezels) and an outer ring with a fine hobnail pattern (similar to the famous clous de Paris bezels from Patek Philippe’s Calatrava line).The minimalist champagne dial is decorated with a fine craquelée effect and devoid of any indices. Besides the decorative pattern, the dial features the Audemars Piguet signature at the 12 o’clock positions and ‘Automatic’ text at the 12 o'clock position, alongside an elegant 18k yellow-gold sword-style handset.This exquisite dress watch is in wonderful condition, runs on a handy automatic movement, and comes with a tan leather strap.

Introduction

Audemars PiguetAudemars Piguet is among the holy trinity Swiss maisons d’horlogerie alongside Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin. Audemars Piguet has a storied history of producing high-complication watches. It all started in 1875, when Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet founded the company in the heart of the Vallée de Joux, Le Brassus, Switzerland. This pure, rough and wild landscape, with deep, dark forests, ice-cold waters and the omnipresence of rocks and hills, provided inspiration and raw materials for the Swiss watch manufacture to develop the finest watches. Since its inception, Audemars Piguet has specialized in rare, valuable and highly-complicated watches like perpetual calendars, chronographs and chiming watches. Nowadays, the emphasis of Audemars Piguet lies on the iconic Royal Oak line.
