Lot Essay

According to the Archives of Audemars Piguet, the present watch was manufactured in 1946 and subsequently sold in New York in 1951.

Audemars Piguet vintage chronographs are widely recognized by collectors as being remarkable timepieces. Produced in much smaller quantities than other highly distinguished Swiss manufacturers, these horological wonders stand out by their unique but classic designs, and highly sought-after movements. The present specimen features a caliber 13VZAH, a high-grade chronograph movement known for exceptional quality. In 1946, Audemars Piguet produced a total of 853 watches, among which only 18 contained the legendary caliber 13VZAH.

It is believed this rare 45 minute chronograph counter was used by soccer aficionados for timing a match.
