Footnotes

  • 愛彼 罕有PT950鉑金男裝日曆自動陀飛輪腕表 具動力儲備顯示 紀念Jules Audemars誕生150周年 2001年製

    Designed in homage to Jules Audemars on the 150th anniversary of his birth, the collection bears a classically round case, elegant streamlined bezel and exquisite engine turned commemorative engraved bezel. This present lot features a delicate satin brushed and yet contemporary coloured blue dial whilst the subsidiary dials are surrounded by a fine decorative platinum rim highlighting the inner guilloched detail. With the three-armed jewelled tourbillon on display, we are given a glimpse of the Audemars Piguet's mastery of watchmaking. Beating within is Caliber 2875, at 21,600 vph, composed out of 268 parts and 41 Jewels. Of particular note is the self-winding mechanism, which is powered by a hammer/weight (7.62 grams) of iridium platinum which swings back and forth, and slowed at the end of each movement by a spring. This results in a soft and subtle vibration rather than the perceptible whirring associated with typical automatic movements.
