Audemars Piguet has a storied history in the world of haute horlogerie. It always has something new to bring to the table — this time, it’s the [Re]master01 automatic self-winding chronograph.
This newly crafted timepiece is one of Audemars Piguet‘s latest creations and it has a story of its own. The design of the watch draws inspiration from a timepiece that dates back to 1943 in the brand’s past. This modern-day reinterpretation of one of its rare chronographs features the Manufacture’s latest technology.
In terms of design, it now has a two-tone aesthetic with a round case and teardrop-shaped lugs in stainless steel. On the 40mm case, you’ll find 18-carat pink gold finishings on the pencil-thin bezel, olive-shaped pushers, and a chamfered crown. But what it protects underneath unveils so much more than just a two-tone look.
The dial itself offers plenty of detail, making it the ideal classic chronograph. It features a satin-brushed, gold-toned dial enriched with black transferred hour-markers, pink gold hour, minute and seconds hands, blue chronograph hands, and a blue transferred tachymetric scale. To top it all off, a light brown hand-stitched calfskin strap. This adds an elegant touch to the watch, which also comes with an additional dark brown alligator strap.
As for the technology, you can expect Audemars Piguet to equip it with only the best. It’s running on the Manufacture’s newest generation — the Selfwinding Manufacture calibre 4409 with a minimal power reserve guarantee of 70 hours. The watch is also water-resistant up to 20m and has a glare-proofed sapphire crystal glass on the front and back. Speaking of which, it is where you can check out the inner workings of the watch.
Only be 500 pieces of the Audemars Piguet [Re]master01 will be made.
