According to the Archives of Audemars Piguet, the present watch was manufactured in 1953 and sold to Asprey, London.
The present watch is an outstanding and unpolished example of a very rare time-only Audemars Piguet in steel. Made in very few examples, the large case and center seconds makes it reminiscent of a Patek Philippe reference 570. Furthermore, it was originally sold to the legendary London retailer Asprey. For those seeking to build outstanding collections, the present watch would be a wonderful addition.
