Named after co-founder Jules Audemars, the present tourbillon showcases the more traditional side of Audemars Piguet. The elegant 39 mm case conceals an automatic calibre boasting a tourbillon, date and power reserve indication. What makes this watch particularly interesting is the lack of winding crown when viewed from the front, as it is situated on the back. Due to it being backwound, the appearance of the piece is wonderfully symmetrical and very pleasing on the wrist.
