Speaking to Audemars Piguet's classical aesthetic before the Royal Oak began to dominate AP’s identity, this stunning Day-Date Moonphase stands as a beautiful piece of vintage watchmaking. With classical detailing in abundance, its thin rectangular 18kt yellow gold case features softened corners and gentle lugs that allow this wonderful piece to fill the wrist with a presence that few vintage watches care to emulate. Featuring a white dial, this watch remains entirely understated with black Roman numerals, vintage AP branding and inscriptions, and a clean symmetrical dial with blued steel day and date subdial hands and yellow gold hands for the hours and minutes that combine with the colorful moon phase indicator to serve as playful pops of color on what would otherwise be an entirely monochromatic piece of design. A wonderful watch, this timepiece is an excellent reminder of AP’s roots as a traditional watchmaker who are filled with a rich history and proud sense of tradition and craftsmanship.
