Catalogue Note

One of a limited number of 10 pieces only, this watch displays Audemars Piguet's reinvention of a original and classic design. In 1909, industrialist John Schaeffer requested a customised and unique timepiece from Audemars Piguet . This watch was therefore made in honour of Mr Schaeffer.
T
he unconventional time indication using the star wheel invention inspired other watch manufacturers such as Urwerk with the 103.03 and Harry Winston with the Opus V.
