Audemars Piguet might be best-known today for its sporty icon, the Royal Oak but AP also made very stylish / ultra-thin dress watches throughout the 1960s and 1970s.

Here, we have a seemingly straightforward dress watch from that era that represented quite a feat for its time. The white gold case measures a mere 7mm in height, and it was designed to fit an even thinner manual-wound movement inside, the historic caliber 2001. Audemars Piguet shared this ultra-thin movement with Jaeger-LeCoultre (caliber 818) and Vacheron Constantin (caliber 1001). The dial is very minimalist, featuring a light clean silver dial with svelte applied hour markers and hands and a simple brand signature at the top of the dial and the "SWISS" indication at six o'clock.

Overall this vintage AP dress watch cased in white gold is in great vintage condition. The case is strong and retains its beautiful lines. It has some minor scratches which is expected on a watch this age. The lugs are sharp and is in excellent condition. The original egg shell white/silver dial is in overall clean conditions for its age. There is a very small scratch around the center of the dial (visible on the macro pictures). The hand set and applied index on the dial show aging with some signs of oxidation on both. The crystal is clean with no major scratches.

The watch comes with its original white gold buckle which has the AP hallmark and engravings signifying the use of gold. It is in fantastic shape with the beautiful AP hall mark in crisp shape. The ultra thin caliber 2001 on this watch was serviced by our watchmaker on February 2023 and is currently running at +5.6  seconds / day. The watch comes with a black alligator strap and a blue calf strap from Jones in Tokyo. However, for countries where we are not allowed to export alligator leather, the watch will come with only the calf blue leather strap.
