-Description

Audemars Piguet was founded in Le Brassus in the Joux Valley by Jules-Louis Audemars and Edouard-Auguste Piguet.

Since its founding in 1875, it is the oldest watch brand consistently managed by the founding family.

Since its foundation, it has been manufacturing complicated watches such as perpetual calendars, chronographs, and sonnerie watches, and together with Vacheron Constantin and Patek Philippe, it is known as one of the world's three major brands, or "Big Three".

This Ref. 4932 (14932) is a hand-wound dress watch sold around 1995.

It is a very rare model, produced in a limited edition of 50 pieces worldwide to commemorate the opening of the Audemars Piguet museum.

The design is inspired by watches from the 1930s, and it is very classical.

The case material is 18K pink gold. It has a warmer hue than yellow gold.


The case size is 31mm, not too big, just the right size.

The curved lugs in the shape of an eagle's claw, called "claw lugs," are a major feature of this watch.

The dial is off-white, a color that can be described as light ivory.

It has a pear-shaped finish, giving it a relatively matte appearance.

The combination of wedge-shaped indexes and Arabic numerals is very rare.

The small, rounded Arabic numerals are impressive, like those of military watches made during WWII.

The sub seconds at the 6 o'clock position is also circled by a cross, indicating that the design was also conscious of watches from the 30's.

The movement is a manual wind Cal.2085.

This movement is based on Frederique Piguet Cal.810, which was also used for watches in the collections of Edouard Piguet, John Schaeffer, and others of the same period.

The watch comes with a genuine Audemars Piguet 18K PG buckle, a certificate of guarantee at the time of sale, and a certificate indicating that it is a limited edition watch.

The certificate indicates that this watch and the Ref. 4918, a rectangular watch, were sold as a set.

It states that it was made to commemorate the opening of the Audemars Piguet museum (before it became the current museum, Musée Atelier Audemars Piguet), as mentioned above.

It also states that it was inspired by the watch design of the 1930s.

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
