AP Cobra: Genta Design & Automatic Caliber
Audemars Piguet Cobra: JPE Integrated Bracelet & Genta Design
- Time (Hour, Minute)
Excellent condition from the year 1970: A rare white gold AP Cobra (presumably designed by Gerald Genta) with the popular cal2120 & an integrated JP Ecoffey milanaise-bracelet -- simply the best of both worlds. The best automatic movement, based on the JLC Ebauche cal920, meets the best bracelet maker in a white gold case and with a silver dial. Simply the most sought after combination with outstanding attributes: unity of case and bracelet and obviously the design language of the young Gerald Genta (1970) with a tone-in-tone dial and hand-hammered surface, that reflects light in at least 50 shades of grey (white gold or in french: or gris / grey gold). 13 applied hours indexes give this characteristic watch the extra spritz and the fact it is not only in excellent condition but as well unpolished make it a rare gem.
The watch wraps around the wrist and the domed glass integrates so perfectly to the bracelet-watch and allows a height of just 6mm -- inclusive the legendary K2120 automatic caliber.
The watch is probably unpolished, all textures, the hand-hammered finishing, serial numbers and hallmarks are deep and sharp. The movement is working precise and reliable after our service. The bracelet is in fantastic and rarely worn condition, shows no warp, stretch or defects and fits a 185mm wrist.
Ad 1: The AP reference 5384BC was priced 65% higher than the exquisite positioned ref5402 Royal Oak in the 1973 AP catalogue.
