Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Moon-Phase Calendar (Ref. 26385OR.OO.A088CR.01) Swiss Watches

Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Moon-Phase Calendar (Ref. 26385OR.OO.A088CR.01)

The new Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Moon-Phase Calendar (Ref. 26385OR.OO.A088CR.01) automatic watch in rose gold was officially presented last month at SIHH 2011 industry event. And a calendar watch has never looked that beautiful.




Equipped with the relatively thin AP Caliber 2324/2825 automatic movement, the watch is presented in a very slim and elegant rose gold case 39 millimeters in diameter and only 8.80 millimeters high.

The new timekeeper quietly speaks the same design language as the rest of the rejuvenated Jules Audemars family: the hour and minute hands are leaf-shaped and the silvered dial is equipped with applied baton-shaped hour markers.

The dial itself is perfectly legible with the calendar counters at 3 (days) and 9 (days of week) o’clock sporting fine, easy to read Arabic numerals and standard abbreviations respectively.

It would be nice to have a small seconds sub-dial combined with the moonphase display at 6 o’clock, but AP’s designers probably decided that such a solution would overload the dial with functions.

All functions of the watch are operated with the same setting crown at 3 o’clock.

It seems that the new watch is going to be one of the best moon-phase timekeepers of the year.
