At the Geneva Salon this year, announced six different male and female models Jules Audemars by Audemars Piguet Obviously, if one of the collections of the brand accounts for 75% of sales, then win at least a small part of attention to can be difficult for other collections.

And in any case it is impossible, this refreshing collection of one or two models a year.

Therefore, the well-known Swiss company Audemars Piguet has been made more radical attempt to win over buyers line Jules Audemars heart – at the Geneva Salon this year, it announced six different male and female models.

All of them are united by a common kostyumnym laconic style, the hallmarks of which are the body in white or rose gold, black or silver dial, arrow leaf and index hour markers.

Automatic trehstrelochnik presented model Jules Audemars Selfwinding.

The case diameter is 39 mm and its thickness – 9 mm.

Placed inside the base manufacturing mechanism 3120, for the first time demonstrated the brand in 2005.

This beautifully decorated caliber characterized doubly bridge balance balance Giromaks type and its oscillation frequency 21’600 pc / h.

Cruising is 60 hours from one of the winding drum, wherein the energy storage system allows bidirectional self-winding rotor with a luxurious gold decorated family coat Audemars and Piguet.

It is expected that the caliber 3120 with the passage of time will replace the caliber Jaeger-LeCoultre 899, still occupies a high percentage of the total number of factory machinery from Le Brassus.

Model Jules Audemars Extra-Thin takes us into the world of ultra-thin watches Audemars Piguet.

Indeed, with a diameter of 41 mm, case height is only 6.

7 mm.

This became possible thanks to one of the most legendary in the history of the mechanisms of Swiss watchmaking.

This Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 920, created in 1967 to three companies – Audemars Piguet, Vacheron Constantin, Patek Philippe.

The first two successfully use it in their ultra-thin, and the skeletonized models, and to this day .



The thickness of the mechanism, according to the classification of the manufactory LeBrassyu received an index 2120, is 2.

45 mm – one of the best indicators in the class of automatic mechanisms.

Its unusual balance varies with frequency 19’800 pc / h (2.

75 Hz) and the range is 40 hours.

It is logical that the functionality of this product is limited to display only the hours and minutes.

Much richer in terms of indicating the different readings model looks Jules Audemars Dual Time.

As the name implies, it allows you to set the time in the second time zone (with the indication “Day / Night”), and also informs about the current date and the reserve mechanism of stroke.

The latter, known as AP cal.

2329/2846, is based on the previously mentioned base caliber JLC 899 module and the second time from Dubuis-Depraz, known for its add-on modules from the manufacturer located not far from the village of Le leagues.

The foregoing structure is placed in the casing of 41 mm diameter and a thickness of 9.

25 mm.

Similarly, on the basis of basic JLC module 899 and DD, formed another premier model – Jules Audemars Moon-Phase Calendar.

In addition to the current time, it is equipped with a hand-type calendar and day of the week, as well as an indicator of lunar phases.

Casing diameter was 39 mm and its thickness is 8.

8 mm sostavlet.

It should be noted that the basic mechanisms of AP cal family.

232x (read JLC) are high-caliber automatic characteristic elements such as the balance of variable inertia (frequency – 28’800 pc / h), one-sided self-winding, self-winding rotor with gold peripheral segment and a ceramic bearing.

Full power reserve of one winding drum lasts for 40 hours.

Only in the new collection of purely female model – Jules Audemars Small Seconds.

And only a simple mechanism with manual winding, AP cal.

3090, a small diameter (20.

8 mm) and small thickness (2.

8 mm), ideally suited to the housings modest (female) size.

In this case, the diameter of the clock is 33 mm and their height – less than 7 mm.

Perhaps the fair half are not inspired by the presence of the hand plant (which, incidentally, is enough for 2 days), but it will certainly be glad to have version of this model with the bezel studded with 60 diamonds total weight of 0.

52 carats.

By the way, similar to the version with stones on bezel discount for hours Jules Audemars Selfwinding.

Finally, the latest model in the survey – Jules Audemars Tourbillon Grande Date.

Aged in the overall style of the entire collection is relatively simple in appearance tourbillon watch with a window close to a “6 o’clock” and the date in front of “12 o’clock”, in fact, pose a complex and beautifully decorated caliber 2909 manual winding.

The history of this part of the tourbillon mechanism goes to 1996, when the division of AP Renaud & Papi, based in Le Locle, were presented watches Edward Piguet Tourbillon with rectangular shaped caliber 2871 19 jewels.

On the other hand, the brilliant realization in the form of increased choice Grande Date first saw the light hours of the series Tradition d’Excellence Cabinet No 2 in 2000.

(AP cal.


The first hours in which these two complications appeared in similar form – watch 2005 Edward Piguet Tourbillon Grande Date and again rectangular mechanism 2886.

Thus, according to AP cal fact.

2909 is the round version of the caliber 2886, which does not make it worse, on the contrary, can detect even in one watch mechanism level and decorating style is identified with the best examples of fine watchmaking old manufactory of Joux Valley.

It should be noted that the model of Jules Audemars Tourbillon Grande Date is available in versions in pink gold with a dark dial and white gold with silver dial.
