Description

To say that Audemars Piguet is just the Royal Oak is sheer blasphemy, what a complete ignorant statement that just erases over 150 years of history in watch making.
A beautiful gentleman's watch from the earliest 1950s showcasing APs craftsmanship on all levels.

The 35mm (appearing even larger) 18k yellow gold Calatrava style case is thick and beefy with full proportions and stepped defined layers. The lugs are thick and even retaining their original curves. The hallmark on the back lug is crisp and deep. The watch has been lovingly worn and not a safe queen. The screw back case back is in good conditions.

The lovely opaline cross hair pattern dial with applied gold dagger markers is in overall pleasing conditions with some minor aging on the right side peripheral. Extra umpf is provided by the Gubelin signature at 6, the fabled Swiss jewelry and watch retailer partner of Audemars Piguet from yesteryear. The fantastic big dome original crystal is in good conditions.

The really beautifully finished automatic caliber 2499 is running well with no issues. The rotor is really attractive with it's clou de Paris pattern reminiscent of what's to come in the company's future.

On alligator vintage strap and generic gold color buckle.

A real fine watch for the real connoisseurs of tasteful timepieces of the mid century. I envision this watch being worn by someone like Charles Eames or Henry Kissinger, it wouldn't be a far fetch at all.
