Audemars Piguet Automatic Dress Watch 18K

Why We Love It

While this elegant yellow gold piece couldn't be any further removed from the bulky brute of the Royal Oak Offshore line that the brand is perhaps most commonly known for amongst today's collectors, making ultra-thin watches is something at which Audemars Piguet has long excelled. 

What stands out the most to us about this piece is the airy thinness and the fine detailing throughout. Sized at 34mm in diameter and measuring only 6mm in thickness, it features a satin gold tone dial with pencil hands, thin polished bezel, and a screw case back, behind which lies the Calibre 21C automatic movement with full-body rotor. In outstanding condition throughout with finely scripted 'Automatic' script at the 6:00 position, this weight of this beauty belies its size thanks to solid 18K casing material

Paired with a black reptile leather strap with solid 18K signed pin buckle, it's a standout dress watch that slides effortlessly under any cuff, and is sure to attract the attention of anyone who knows that the brand from Le Brassus can do more than beefy and angular!

The Audemars Piguet Story

There are certain watches that define a brand, informing its design ethos and becoming nothing short of iconic in the minds of collectors.

For Audemars Piguet, that watch is the Royal Oak—in all its multitudinous incarnations. Yet the manufacture from Le Brassus did not earn its seat in the triumvirate of leading watch brands—the so-called Big Three—on the success of the Royal Oak alone.

In fact, both Jules Audemars and Edward Piguet came from long lines of watchmakers, and made their reputations long before the Royal Oak was conceived. Their reputations rested on their ability to create incredibly elegant timepieces in numerous styles.

Though they may not have had catchy names like the Royal Oak, or boasted complicated movements like the present-day Jules Audemars collection, their vintage dress watches nevertheless captures the attention to detail that Audemars Piguet has come to be known for.
