Today's offering showcases this mens midsize Audemars Piguet with ultra thin caliber 2003 movement. Its thin gold case and classic simple understated silver dial and hands, give it a fashionable yet elegant vintage style. Just as fine on the inside as it is on the outside, the watch is powered by Audemars Piguet's legendary extra-flat movement, co-developed with Vacheron & Constantin. Released in 1946 the minuscule movement was a true feat of technical engineering. It is the thinnest movement ever created for a normal size watch, measuring a mere 1.64mm! To honor the achievement Vacheron & Constantin presented personalized examples to several key Heads of State including President Dwight Eisenhower. Only a few luxury watches in the following decades would lay claim to this movement earning them reputations as masterpieces of twentieth-century watchmaking. It is fully original down to its dial, hands, winding crown, and original solid 18K gold AP buckle and in pleasing condition. Our watchmaker has just freshly cleaned and oiled the movement, which is quite pristine. Photos of the inside available upon request.
