Yes, I said Soccer….Association Football shortens to Soccer, it is about the only bit of English language butchery our US cousins should be forgiven for, that and Aluminum…it is spelt differently from our Aluminium that’s why it is said the way it is, but as King Kenny sings (Everett not Dalglish) your say potato and I say potato………

Limited Edition of 500 Pieces

Scottish Watches and Moritz Grossmann

Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer Audemars Piguet’s newly crafted automatic chronograph brings the aesthetics of the past into the present.

Audemars Piguet’s vintage chronograph wristwatches are among the rarest in the world with only 307 units made between the 1930s through the 1950s.

People are very cognisant of the design shake up that took place in the 1970s and in the early 2000s. However, creative expressions of case form and dial design have occurred during every decade of our history. For [Re]master01, we chose to explore the strength and elegance of one of our chronograph wristwatches from 1943 through the prism of 2020. [Re]master01 features a round case and lugs in stainless steel, enhanced by a bezel, olive-shaped pushers and chamfered crown in 18kt rose gold.

Although the dial design has retained the original timepiece’s classic features and Art Deco-inspired numerals, the watch’s enlarged 40mm diameter ensures better legibility fit for a contemporary use.

Yet, [Re]master01 has subtly kept the original watch’s 4/5 indication above the 15 minutes mark inside the 30-minutes counter at 9 o’clock to allow the wearer to record up to 45 minutes. This indication was requested by Audemars Piguet’s third-generation family-founder Jacques-Louis Audemars (1910 2003) to satisfy his taste for soccer and indicate his favourite sport’s half time.

MSRP is $53,100
