Audemars Piguet was founded in Le Brassus in the Joux Valley by Jules-Louis Audemars and Edouard-Auguste Piguet.
Since its founding in 1875, it is the oldest watch brand consistently managed by the founding family.
Since its foundation, it has been manufacturing complicated watches such as perpetual calendars, chronographs, and sonnerie watches, and together with Vacheron Constantin and Patek Philippe, it is known as one of the world's three major brands, or "Big Three".
This Ref. 4932 (14932) is a hand-wound dress watch sold around 1995.
It is a very rare model, produced in a limited edition of 50 pieces worldwide to commemorate the opening of the Audemars Piguet museum.
The design is inspired by watches from the 1930s, and it is very classical.
The case material is 18K pink gold. It has a warmer hue than yellow gold.
The case size is 31mm, not too big, just the right size.
The curved lugs in the shape of an eagle's claw, called "claw lugs," are a major feature of this watch.
The dial is off-white, a color that can be described as light ivory.
It has a pear-shaped finish, giving it a relatively matte appearance.
The combination of wedge-shaped indexes and Arabic numerals is very rare.
The small, rounded Arabic numerals are impressive, like those of military watches made during WWII.
The sub seconds at the 6 o'clock position is also circled by a cross, indicating that the design was also conscious of watches from the 30's.
The movement is a manual wind Cal.2085.
This movement is based on Frederique Piguet Cal.810, which was also used for watches in the collections of Edouard Piguet, John Schaeffer, and others of the same period.
The watch comes with a genuine Audemars Piguet 18K PG buckle, a certificate of guarantee at the time of sale, and a certificate indicating that it is a limited edition watch.
The certificate indicates that this watch and the Ref. 4918, a rectangular watch, were sold as a set.
It states that it was made to commemorate the opening of the Audemars Piguet museum (before it became the current museum, Musée Atelier Audemars Piguet), as mentioned above.
It also states that it was inspired by the watch design of the 1930s.

About Complete Service
Complete service, sometime called overhaul is the work of disassembling a mechanical product down to its individual parts, cleaning and reassembling it to bring it closer to its new state of performance.
Roughly speaking, the overhaul procedure is as follows.
1. Separate into case and movement
2. Disassemble the movement
3. Inspection and pre-cleaning of wear condition of each part
4. Wash parts with a special machine
5. Lubrication and assembly
6. Waterproof test
7. Final adjustment and running test.
Some movements are made up of hundreds of parts, but it is a very meticulous process of disassembling them one by one, inspecting them all, cleaning them, and reassembling them.
If you don't overhaul, the oil will deteriorate just like a car, and the risk of wear and damage to parts increases, causing a decrease in accuracy and, in severe cases, not working.
There is also the reason that it will be very expensive to replace parts after they are found to be damaged, so we recommend overhauling once every 2-3 years for economical and long-term use.
Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has rounded corners that were originally sharp, and has many small scratches even though the mirror finish should be beautiful. state.
At Arbitro, some watches are sold with a new finish, based on the idea that you can purchase them in beautiful condition and use them for a long time.
In particular, gold-cased dress watches are finished to bring out the best of the precious metal case.
The watches sold by us that have been given a new finish are shot in very high definition, so you can see that the edges stand out and the light is reflected by the mirror finish.
Also, depending on the case or bracelet, there are cases where multiple finishes such as mirror finish and hairline finish are mixed, but there are not many craftsmen who can distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.
In addition, the “thinness of the case” is also a part that is greatly influenced by the skill of the craftsman.
A watch that has become thinner and has thinner lugs is far from its original design, and the appearance becomes unbalanced.
It is a very precise work that brings the case closer to the original finish by eliminating scratches and dents while reducing the thickness of the case to the utmost limit.
Of course, there are cases where it is better to use the watch as it is, in order to emphasize the history of the watch and its original condition.
We look at each watch and judge whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
