Introduced in 1978, the Quantieme Perpetual was an extraordinary achievement in watchmaking. At the time it was released, it reigned as the world's thinnest, self-winding perpetual calendar. The movement was used in only a handful of models by Audemars Piguet, most notably, the Royal Oak.

The overall condition of the watch is excellent. The dial and hands show no indication of aging or damage. The high polish bezel has very light hairline scratches. The case shows minimal to no signs of wear. The caseback has some light hairline scratches which are only slightly visible on the high polished section. There is no doubt that this watch has been carefully taken care of. The strap has only a few faint marks but is still in great condition. The buckle is original to the watch and has extremely tiny needlelike abrasions.
Please Note: Due to CITES considerations, if the watch is to be shipped outside of the USA, an alternative leather strap to the existing exotic skin version, shall be provided.
Although historically the Quantieme Perpetual has been underappreciated, there is no doubt that this is changing fast. These early variations are becoming increasingly arduous to find, and the fact that this is in platinum with a Tuscan blue dial, makes it a watch worth owning.
