-Description

Audemars Piguet is the oldest watch brand consistently run by the founding family since 1875.

It is sometimes abbreviated to AP from the initials Audemars Piguet.

Together with Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin, it is one of the world's three leading luxury watch brands.

Created in 1972, the Royal Oak broke with conventional wisdom and established a new status for itself as a 'luxury sport' watch.

With its stainless steel case, octagonal bezel, 'tapestry' dial and integrated bracelet, the watch is credited with saving Audemars Piguet from a quartz crisis.

The shape of the case, with its polished and hairline finish used in different ways, and the bracelet, which is very thin and light but has a luxurious feel, show the tremendous amount of time that went into this watch, considering that it was all done by hand.

Ref.14790 is a very long-lived model that was lined up for about 30 years from the late 1980s to the late 2000s.

The main features of this watch are its middle size case of 36 mm and its thinness of 7.5 mm.

Although it may seem small when you only look at the numbers, the case shape and bracelet are integrated, so when you actually put it on your wrist, it feels about 40 mm in size.

The 14790 is divided into three types depending on when it was manufactured, each with different details.

This one is the latest, 3rd generation model, manufactured around 2003.

Among the collectors,It is referred to as Mk3 or 3rd Series.

The differences from the previous generation are that the bar indexes are shorter and the tapestry on the dial is larger.

The bracelet clasp is shaped like the AP logo. This is also a feature of the Mk3.

The movement is automatic Cal. 2225.

It is based on Jaeger-LeCoultre's Cal.889 and is the successor to the Cal.2125.

It has a very thin automatic winding and the rotor's circumference is made of 21K gold.

The Cal.889 was used by Jaeger-LeCoultre not only for Audemars Piguet, but also for some Vacheron Constantin and IWC models.

Both the case and dial are in very good condition, although there is a slight scratch on the underside of the bezel.

The full set comes with the outer box, inner box, warranty guarantee booklet, instruction booklet and the sales tag with serial number.

The bracelet can be adjusted to 18.5cm as there are 3 extra links.

Currently, it is working very well. Within +10 seconds per day.
