Obsessive Attention To Unseen Detail, And Why I love Luxury Watch Decoration: Audemars Piguet Openworking Video Inside the Manufacture

I like to share with people that luxury mechanical watch movements are so meticulously decorated. Most of what is spent weeks or months working on will never be viewable to anyone save for other watch makers. It is true, the highest-end watch movements have each piece decorated by hand (hundreds of pieces), most of which are hidden inside of the movement. Does this help in the function of the watch? Typically is doesn’t, but it is often a matter of pride and tradition – something watches are all about. Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Small Seconds has been on a roll creating “educational” marketing videos about how they make watches and the assembly and decoration thereof. A lot of these can be found features at TheTimeTV.com. Here is one particular video that displays a lot of impressive handiwork. It is all about “the art of openworking,” or otherwise the creation of decorated skeletonized movements. This video details a little bit about the decoration of the Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Equation of Time Skeletonized watch (there is a non skeletonized version as well).

You have to realize that what the engraver is doing in the video is really hard. They make it look easy, but they have been doing it for years. Most of their tools they even make themselves. Applying the right amount of pressure, being able to articulate shapes, and not making mistakes takes years of training. I actually tried doing this myself under a microscope in Germany, it is not easy to get anything that doesn’t look like a bunch of random scratches. In the video the engraver at Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Small Seconds designs a rope motif which makes the exposed parts of the movement plate, rotor, and bridges look like threaded rope. The engraving process on a watch like the Jules Audemars Equation of Time Skeletonized can take weeks if not months. The same engraver does a lot of the work and must do everything carefully. All the effort does pay off in the end, and the decorated “competition” quality movements look phenomenal. So again, why all the work? Because that is really part of luxury. Your expensive watch has been lovingly decorated by masters in their field using time honored techniques without a hint of robotic programming or synthetic style. It is all by hand, and it is all by professionals. It is important to see them in action as just viewing the final result doesn’t tell you the entire story. Once you realize how long they put into it, that $100,000 plus price tag starts to make a lot more sense.

Personally I can’t pick which one is my favorite because I totally adore monochromatic watches, while pink gold attracts at my emotions.Either way it’s a win-win with those pieces; they actually stand second to none.Returning to this timepiece after so many years and having seen and learned so much in the intervening time, I managed to take a fresh look at the ChronoAP. No more was it just a cool watch with some cool features, it had been a fully mature and complicated entity containing more than meets the eye (which remains spectaculawesome). I am rather glad I stumbled across it in the archives of this Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève since it reminded me of the grace and style for which I adore Audemars Piguet. To me, this piece is unlikely to be overshadowed in the brand’s set any time soon and that is including the Millenary Minute Repeater (increditastic) or even the expansive complications in any category.The Jules Audemars Chronometer with AP Escapement takes the cake.Mmmm, cake. Let us just break things down instead!Wowza Factor * 9.39 The movement design and sheer effort in completing make this item wow at each glance.Late Night Lust Appeal * 140.5 ” 1377.834m/s2 More than a sprint missile this watch has the force to keep you planted in your chair to lust into the wee hours of this morning.M.G.R. * 68.8 Just look at this three-dimensional bit of Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars horological attractiveness. Need I say more?Added-Functionitis * Moderate Once again the ever-useful power reserve. Never gets older and in this bit it adds to the remainder of the entire. I urge normal-strength the Gotta-HAVE-That lotion for your nicely balanced swelling.Ouch Outline * 11.87 — Getting your shoelace caught in your bike spokes Any young boy or girl probably has had this happen, and just once! But still, for an opportunity at this bit, I would let both my shoes become forever entangled!Mermaid Moment * Immediate There is not any lapse of time between initial seeing it and falling in love. Seriously, call the minister because I am prepared to state “I do!” Totally justified.
