Lot Essay

Concluding from its high quality and layout, very similar to Audemars Piguet's number 4125 (see Audemars Piguet by Gisbert L. Brunner, Christian Pfeiffer-Belli, Martin K. Wehrli, second edition, pp. 144-145), the ébauche of the present watch is possibly made by the renowned manufacturer, even if not registered in their archives.
