Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Extra Thin

This year, the Jules Audemars collection welcomes an elegant new version featuring an understated design inspired by the Reference 5271 model created to mark the launch of the extra-thin Calibre 2120. 

 

Featuring contemporary dimensions and sleek, pure lines, this timepiece proudly displays its beating heart, the timeless movement introduced in 1967 and considered by many specialists as “the world’s most beautiful self-winding movement”. Calibre
2120, entirely designed, developed and crafted by the Manufacture Audemars Piguet, is an integral part of the history and the legend that forged the brand’s reputation in the field of extra-thin mechanical movements. 

 

At less than 7 mm thick, the new Jules Audemars watch is entirely in line with this exceptional continuity. The reliability and performance of its movement are matched
by the exquisite finesse of its decorations stemming from the meticulous care lavished by watchmakers on finishing all the components. The mainplate alone features five different diameters of circular graining. All the bridges are chamfered and polished by hand. A connoisseur’s eye will revel in the remarkable craftsmanship devoted to the exterior and internal angles. Even the hidden surfaces have been treated with
particular care, such as the lower part which is circular grained.
