1998 Audemars Piguet 18k WG (Ref. 14524/0988) "Ultra Thin" W/ Guarantee Booklet
Although Audemars Piguet may be best known for their Royal Oak series, notably designed by Gerald Genta, AP had a long lineage of interesting timepieces both before the conceptualization of the Royal Oak and after. Primarily consisting of precious metals, Audemar Piguet produced some highly collectible chronographs and dress models that were stylistically, in many cases, very ahead of their time.
This Audemars Piguet ref. 14524/0988 is solid 18k white gold and features an orantate, yet subtle integrated mesh bracelet which comfortably molds around the wrist. But the true beauty is behind the case back, the ultra-thin cal. 2003 manual winding movment allows this watch to stand at only 5mm thick, hence the name "Ultra Thin". And with a diameter of 31.5mm, this AP would make an elegant and sophisticated companion for any collector, male or female.
