collection 5 of 6 Tradition
This collection, born in 2008, was inspired by the elegance of a 1923 cushion-shaped pocket watch. Its emblematic lines are accentuated by a cambered bezel, and its calibres embody Audemars Piguet’s commitment to unparalleled performance.collection details
collection 6 of 6 Classique
Inspired by Audemars Piguet’s earliest watches, such as the pocket watches that are so emblematic of the Vallée De Joux’s watchmaking tradition, as well as cushion-shaped wristwatches.collection details
complication 1 of 15Chronograph
A chronograph is a standard watch fitted with an auxiliary mechanism that measures and displays continuous or discontinuous spans of time without affecting the watch’s time-keeping functions. A center chronograph hand can start, stop and restart at will, then return to zero by actioning one or more push-pieces.
complication 2 of 15Chronometer with AP Escapement
The escapement combines high efficiency and shock resistance with lubricant-free operation. By beating faster than an ordinary movement, the balance offers exceptional chronometry and enhanced reliability.
complication 3 of 15Day & Date
The simplest complication on a watch is the date display. Day & Date adds the day of the week to the date complication.
complication 4 of 15Dual Time
In 1990, Audemars Piguet created the first Dual Time wristwatch to display the time in a second time zone driven by a single selfwinding movement calibre.
complication 5 of 15Equation of Time
The lapse of time between two passages of the sun through the meridian does not have the same length throughout the year. The equation of time represents the difference between mean solar and legal time.
complication 6 of 15Grande Complication
A combination of four functions coming from three core types of complications – astronomy, chiming and time interval. This selfwinding watch features a perpetual calendar indicating the day, the date, the week, the moon phases, the month and the leap years, minute repeater, split-seconds chronograph and small seconds at 9 o'clock.
complication 7 of 15Hand-Wound
The oldest type of watch movement in production, dating back to the sixteenth century. The hand-wound watch needs to be wound in order to function. Audemars Piguet hand-wound watches are celebrated for their reliability and precision.
complication 8 of 15Minute Repeater
This complication indicates the hours by a series of strikes on the low-pitched gong, quarter hours by striking the low/high-pitched gong and additional minutes by striking the high-pitched gong.
complication 9 of 15Minute Repeater with AP Escapement
complication 10 of 15Moon Phases
The astronomical moon phase indication provides an opportunity to admire the waxing and waning phases of the earth's satellite. The watch will continue running without any need for further adjustment for 122 years and 44 days.
complication 11 of 15Perpetual Calendar
The perpetual calendar is truly one of Audemars Piguet's stellar complications. It can display the day, month and year while taking into account the variable lengths of months and leap years.
complication 12 of 15Quartz
Quartz movements are based on a regulator consisting of a quartz crystal through which an electric current is passed. The quartz crystal vibrates at 32,768Hz, providing a more accurate oscillator for timekeeping than the balance wheel of the mechanical watch.
complication 13 of 15Selfwinding
Audemars Piguet selfwinding watches combine functionality and precision timekeeping and are distinguished by their extreme reliability. The movements of the wrist produce the energy required for the selfwinding mechanics to function.
complication 14 of 15Small Seconds
As opposed to centre or sweep seconds (positioned at the centre of the main dial), the small seconds is a small subdial showing seconds, generally at 6 o'clock.
complication 15 of 15Tourbillon
The tourbillon serves to compensate for the effects of gravity to enhance the accuracy of the movement rating. It makes the entire escapement rotate at a predefined cadence.
case material 1 of 9Ceramic
In the mid-1980s, Audemars Piguet became one of the first brands to use ceramics to make watch wristbands. Non-metallic and yet virtually unscratchable, ceramic is known as an efficient thermal insulator. It does not scratch and is also perfectly resistant to friction.
case material 2 of 9Forged Carbon
No watchmaker uses carbon like Audemars Piguet. Based on an innovative method, 1mm diameter carbon wire strands are molded by extreme pressure and heat. Beyond its lightness, forged carbon offers the advantage of making parts with straight edges and sharp angles.
case material 3 of 9Pink Gold
Pink gold is composed of 75% fine gold, along with 5% silver and 20% copper, the latter proportion varies according to the desired color intensity. Audemars Piguet also uses two other forms of gold: yellow and white.
case material 4 of 9White Gold
White gold also comprises 75% fine gold, along with 10% copper and 15% palladium to give it the white colour. Audemars Piguet also uses two other forms of gold: yellow and pink.
case material 5 of 9Yellow Gold
Yellow gold is composed of 75% fine gold, 16% silver and 9% copper in its 2N version. The 3N version has the same proportion of gold, along with 12.5% of each of the two other metals. Audemars Piguet also uses two other forms of gold: pink and white.
case material 6 of 9other
case material 7 of 9Platinum
Platinum is 30 times more rare than gold, in fact it is the most exclusive metal in the field of fine watchmaking. It is also used in its purest form, at 95%. Its malleability makes it particularly difficult to handle.
case material 8 of 9Steel
Composed of iron, chromium, nickel and molybdemum, steel boasts excellent corrosion resistance. To perfect the aesthetic appeal of stainless steel, Audemars Piguet’s finishing process endows the metal with a luminous appearance.
case material 9 of 9Titanium
Grade 5 titanium, the most resistant and robust variety on the market, is ultra-rugged and twice as light as steel. Titanium boasts strong chemical stability and is hypoallergenic.
