Design Concept & Catalog Note
The present timepiece is an extremely rare special-order design introduced by Audemars Piguet in the 1960-1970s.
Designed with 60 brilliant white diamonds in a double diamond row concept which is considered one of the most collectible of all examples for a gem set bracelet watch in this period, the present example is designed with carefully selected VS1 Diamonds , all well matched and represents one of the finest examples produced by the legendary firm during this period.

As commercial air travel was made available to the general public and the concept of the “jetsetter” was born, fashionable accessories throughout the 1960s and early 1970s which could be worn night or day regardless of the even became a new necessity for contemporary society. Audemars Piguet recognized this new demand and as a result put into commission a very small select series of exceptional gem set creations such as the present example which was produced with a single row typically and only the most premier special order examples having a double diamond row concept.

Special attention to detail is also notable when examining the carefully woven rope textured bracelet which demonstrates the firms best in gold workmanship combined with the masterful ingenuity in innovation found with the present examples which deployed state of the art ultra thin movement technology as a means to give the present timepiece a great sense of high fashion luxury style to appear more as a piece of jewelry than that of a the standard concept of a wristwatch which one typically thinks of when conceptualizing a wristwatch. This is demonstrated by the mechanical winding crown which is on the reverse case back versus the side of the case where most traditional timepieces have their winding mechanism located at the 3 position traditionally.

In addition, to the beautifully crafted bracelet, the bezel also demonstrates careful gem setting skills as obvious special attention to plan each diamonds location with graduated size diamonds appearing on the corner angles of the bezel and smaller brilliant round cut diamonds as it nears closer to the dial. In addition, it is also notable to mention the beautifully diamond set hour hands which add a further sense of high style that one would expect to see on only the best examples of the firm’s creations in this particular series.

Adding further allure to this very special piece, it is also additionally interesting to note the very limited production locking mechanism clasp which boats the iconic AP logo on clasp that appeared for a very limited time only for a 10 year period before switching to the more standard logo exhibited on today’s creations.


Condition
In addition, the timepiece is also in perfect unused condition with no missing stones, near perfect dial with no discoloration and case with no missing diamonds or replaced stones. Furthermore, the timepiece has been recently serviced and is in perfect working condition as it also bold signatures on the dial and sharp hallmarks and serial numbers throughout indicating it was seldomly worn and is extremely well preserved given its 60 year old age.
