Inspired by the brand’s earliest timepieces, including iconic pocket watches with great complications, as well as cushion-shaped wristwatches, Audemars Piguet Classic Collection is a great example how the rich heritage can be permanent inspiration for a modern high-end watchmaker. According to the number of groundbreaking pieces that glorify the brand’s history, this inspiration will never dry up.
At the end of the 19th century, Audemars Piguet had already been recognized as the top-end manufacturer of stunning pocket-watches and wristwatches with minute repeaters. In 1915, the brand launched the world’s smallest five-minute repeater movement in the world, with the diameter of just 15.8 millimeters. Ten years later, the Swiss manufacturer introduced another revolutionary watch – the world’s thinnest pocket watch measuring just 1.32 millimeters, while the first skeletonized pocket watch in the history of watchmaking waited to be presented in 1928.
Today, the Classic Collection presents several cushion-shaped wristwatch models, with an extra-thin body and some stunning grand complications, such as a minute repeater and a perpetual calendar. The exeptional luxury and stylishness come with a Classique Clous de Paris timepiece.
