Description

This extremely rare and important watch by Audemars Piguet originally retailed for £150k. This beautifully crafted Jules Audemars Chronometer in rose gold encapsulates years of development by one of Switzerland’s few independent great watchmaking firms.

In 2009, Audemars Piguet introduced this watch in a limited production, using a unique in-house escapement. The ‘direct impulse escapement’ is oil-free, a development of the detent escapements used in marine navigational instruments. It also beats at a remarkable 43,200 beats per hour, versus the usual 21,600. Although these features are all dedicated to superior timekeeping, they are rarely developed for production by top marques like AP. The watch therefore represents the chance to own a rare example of horological development not normally available beyond bespoke or concept pieces.

Visually, the watch is striking. At 46mm it has presence, yet sits comfortably on the wrist. The dial is of vitreous black enamel dial with white roman numerals. The base-plate is of solid white gold, its crisply grained finish visible as a result of the distinctive open-worked plan of the watch. This also allows a clear view of the escapement, the large frosted mainspring barrels with gold drive wheels, and power reserve indicator (90 hours running). Twin opposed balance springs afford resilience to positional changes that can otherwise only be remedied with a tourbillon.

The watch is unworn, and is supplied with its beautiful original fitted mahogany cabinet, stamped and dated certificate of origin and is furnished on an Audemars alligator strap with 18ct gold folding clasp.
