[RE]Master01 Selfwinding Chronograph

Since 1875, Audemars Piguet has followed its own path, combining watchmaking tradition with cutting-edge technology, and pioneering new materials and designs.

Over the years, the Manufacture has used a wide variety of materials, colours and case forms, ranging from traditional geometries such as the circle, square and rectangle, to more unexpected trapezoidal or octagonal shapes.

The 5159BA Model, launched in 1960 and produced in seven units, one of which is on display in the Musée Atelier Audemars Piguet, belongs to this generation of watches, with its asymmetrical 27.5 mm rectangular case in 18-carat yellow gold and a dial that breaks with the codes of classic watchmaking.

Between 1959 and 1963, Audemars Piguet created more than 30 asymmetrical models, most of which were produced in less than 10 pieces. [RE]Master02 is a fantastic opportunity to revive this forgotten golden age.

Model 5159BA is today reinterpreted in a new limited edition of 250 pieces. [RE]Master02 features an asymmetrical 41 mm rectangular case crafted in the new 18-carat sand gold alloy. This timepiece houses the extra-thin Calibre 7129, one of the Manufacture's latest selfwinding hour and minute movement.
