empressissi™ is pleased to offer this rare and most elegant AUDEMARS PIGUET Art Deco dress watch for men from the late 20s in flowing timeless Art Deco design in Platinum.
The watch houses a strong early AP manual wind movement, running on 18 jewels, which is quite rare and high-jeweled for such an early movement. Also notable is the fact the watch runs on a unique 20,222 beats per hour unlike most watches of the period running on 18,000 bph. It is cased in an exquisite and thick Platinum case with an elegant Art Deco design and has a good crown and mint mineral crystal.
The dial has been restored in the past with a unique combination of classic Art Deco numerals and dual tone silver/pearl design with elegant Art Deco pattern in pearl sub tone to the middle. The numerals and hands have luminous material and are glowing nicely in the dark.
This elegant AP watch measures 25mm side to side (excluding crown) and 37mm from top lug to bottom lug.
Attached to this watch is standard length, brand new 21mm wide SPEIDEL genuine leather band in slim black with an anti-allergic white tone buckle.
