Hand-wound chronometer with small seconds at 6 o’clock and power-reserve indication, high frequency movement (43,200 vibrations per hour) with Audemars Piguet escapement and double balance spring. 18-carat pink gold case, black dial, brown strap.

It may not be quite as complicated as some of their minute-repeater or tourbillon pieces but this gorgeous COSC certified chronometer from Audemars Piguet’s Jules Audemars collection certainly looks the part.

Jules Audemars

First introduced in 2009, the ChronAP is powered by the in-house Calibre 2908, a high-frequency movement that beats at 43,200 vibrations per hour and features a lubrication free escapement.

Striking Symmetry
One of the first things to strike you about the dial is just how attractive it is to look at. At first I thought it was just the clean lines and good use of contrasting color but then I realized what was really attracting my eye was the perfectly symmetrical layout.

The effect is subtle at first but once you become aware of it, it is almost overt and you can’t but help admiring how balanced everything feels.
