Here we have the Audemars Piguet Tradition Perpetual Calendar Minute Repeater watch created to commemorate a unique cushion-shaped pocket watch introduced way back in 1923. This impressive creation is one of the rare timepiece to house both a perpetual calendar and minute repeater. The case is available in 18 carat white gold or platinum and measures 39 mm in diameter. The bezel has a brushed finish while the case and lugs are polished.

The dial has a beautiful opaline vertical satin-brushed finish with "Cathedral" hands. The numeral hour markers are Breguet-style Arabic numerals crafted in pink gold while the pointers for small seconds, day, date, month, and leap year are crafted in blued steel. Located at the 9 o'clock position is the classical moon phase indicator. This indicates the motions of the Moon through a 29 1/2 day cycle. The watches minute repeater chimes the hours, quarter hours, and individual minutes on two gongs.

The see-through case-back is produced from sapphire crystal and allows for easier viewing of the hand-wound Caliber 2855, which is composed of 435 hand-finished parts. The movement has a balance frequency of 18,000 vibrations per hour and features an advantage of 30-hour power-reserve. The bridges are decorated with Cotes de Geneve and anglage finishes. It also has beveled screws, jewels, and repeater hammers which feature a fine polish. The Audemars Piguet Tradition Perpetual Calendar Minute Repeater watch is completed by a hand-sewn alligator leather strap which is fitted an 18 white carat gold or platinum buckle.
