This highly sophisticated wristwatch not only strikes the time on request, but can be set to chime automatically. A grande sonnerie is a mechanism that chimes the hour and also the quarter every 15 minutes. Similar to a bell tower or clock. This watch can also be considered a clock watch.

The case back is signed 'no. 1' and both and case and bracelet have been lavishly set with diamonds. Complete with original certificate, sales tag and presentation box, the present watch is offered in excellent overall condition.

Audemars Piguet manufactured a total 188 sonnerie wristwatches between approximately 1996 and 2000, highlighting their rarity and exclusivity.
