Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Grand Complications sets the standard of excellence very high with these extraordinary horological works of art and craftsmanship. Each timepiece in the Jules Audemars Grand Complications collection has its own unique characteristics, many of which are limited editions. Each timepiece contains between 38 to 52 jewels, has 305 to 665 moving parts and comes with a power reserve of 48 to 50 hours.
Timepieces in the Jules Audemars Grand Complications collection are housed in the Jules Audemars round case, ranging from 39 mm to 43 mm, with a sapphire scratch resistant and anti-reflective crystal, each bearing the Audemars Piguet signature.
The Jules Audemars Grand Complications timepieces have a variety of features and complications. A few of the functions include: hours; minutes; minute repeater; and a perpetual calendar indicating day, date, week, moon phase, month, leap years, split second chronograph and a tourbillon.
Some of the dials are skeletonized to see the workings from the face, while other pieces have a transparent exhibition case permitting observation of the workings of the watch from the back. Other dials feature either Roman numerals or Arabic numbers on white or black dials. Some of the Jules Audemars Grand Complications have a hand-wound movement, while others are automatic. One model even audibly strikes the hour, quarters and minutes upon request.
Depending on the particular timepiece, the case may be yellow gold, rose gold, pink gold, white gold, titanium or platinum. The band may be either a leather strap or precious metal bracelet, matching the timepiece itself, with either a deployant clasp or a one that is integrated into the watchband.
An Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Grand Complications timepiece is a classic work of art that any sophisticated, discerning gentleman will prefer owning to other luxury watches.
