The popularity of the Royal Oak line has somewhat obscured Audemars Piguet’s distinguished history of producing exquisite dress watches. And, this lovely example from the mid 1960s is the quintessential representation of a luxury dress watch. This manual wound dress watch dates back to 1964 and features an elegant 33 mm case that is the epitome of 1960s minimalism. The thin round case sports slim straight lugs and a narrow round bezel, which give the watch a larger appearance on the wrist than its dimensions would suggest. Most dress watches from this era were executed in 18k yellow gold, yet this specimen goes off the beaten path and employs a cool and understated 18k white gold alloy instead. The choice of case material plays well with the majestic blue sunburst dial with simple thin 18k white gold stick markers and matching thin swords hands.The watch is in excellent condition with sharp lines and comes on a matching navy blue alligator leather Audemars Piguet strap with an 18k white gold ardillon buckle, signed Audemars Piguet.
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 main emphasis of Audemars Piguet lies on the iconic Royal Oak line.
