Introduction

Named after Jules Audemars, one of Audemars Piguet's founders, the Jules Audemars family is a stunning dress watch collection that typically features complications. First produced in the 1980s during the tail-end of the Quartz Crisis, the Jules Audemars collection was released as means for Audemars Piguet to celebrate the re-emergence of mechanical watchmaking and showcase their prowess as one of the finest watchmakers in the world. Often used as vehicle for AP to demonstrate their complex watchmaking, it stands as no surprise that the Jules Audemars Dual Time 26380OR.OOD002CR.01 that we have here is, indeed, quite complex too. Boasting an 18kt rose gold case with a beautiful black dial, its automatic cal. 2329/2846 movement drives a plethora of complications on its dial, such as its power reserve indicator, a separate timezone subdial at 6 o’clock with an an AM/PM indicator, and a pointer date subdial. Combining all of that with the Jules Audemars’ dress watch design, this 41mm 18kt rose gold stunner is the perfect marriage between modern stylistic sensibilities and contemporary demands with regards to practical functions for a watch. A beautifully crafted timepiece, this example demonstrates the best of AP and all that they offer in the pantheon of watchmaking.

THE DIAL

Boasting an excellently executed black dial, this example features rose gold applied indices, three handsomely recessed subdials with gold surrounds and a beautifully clear power reserve indicator that combine with the 18kt rose gold construction to absolute perfection.

THE CONSTRUCTION

At 41mm in diameter, the Jules Audemars Dual Time is large watch for a dress watch, but it is still in keeping with modern stylistic sensibilities with its thin 9.25mm profile.

Our Perspective

An elegant watch that features every aspect of fine watchmaking that made Audemars Piguet who they are today, the Jules Audemars is a stunning reminder of what happens when AP blends their impeccable craftsmanship with classical aesthetics.
