Classic AP with Integrated JPE-Bracelet & Rare Automatic Movement cal2123
Audemars Piguet AP-Serviced Vintage Classic: Rare Automatic cal2123 & JPE Bracelet, Perfect Condition & Strong Honey Patina
- Time (Hour, Minute, Central Second)
Perfect condition classic AP reference 4162BA, with a strong honey-patina. Housing the "successor" of the popular caliber 2121: the rare Audemars Piguet cal2123, derived from Jaeger LeCoultre cal900 and obviously with central second. This movement has several improvements over the cal2121 workhorse and comes even slightly smaller (2mm less in diameter). It was used in some Royal Oak models and several other APs from 1978 onwards but you will struggle to find it in a solid gold integrated JPE-bracelet variant, which was simply no longer the trend when this movement came to market -- but gives us a super-rare classic here. Besides the fact this movement was used overall in less than 9ˋ000 watches by AP -- a rare bird.
Fully serviced by AP authorized service center in December 2020 (so under warranty until end of 2022) but not polished as is obvious by the hot-butter coloured gold case and bracelet.
