Designed as a pocket watch concealed within an authentic US twenty-dollar double eagle coin, with an expertly milled push button that blends in to the reeded edge of the coin. The push button releases the coin's spring-activated face to reveal a watch with white dial and yellow gold bezel. Crafted by carefully hollowing out the gold coin, the interior is beautifully decorated with perlage, a tradition for only the finest luxury mechanical movements. Crafting an ultra-thin watch with a mechanical movement and 32-hour power reserve, then masterfully inserting the watch and spring-loaded mechanism into the coin's interior is a rigorous art that can only be performed by a handful of the finest watchmakers in the world. The condition of this example is exceptional. According to the archives of Audemars Piguet, the present coin watch was completed on December 10, 1958.



Accompanied by an Audemars Piguet Extrait de Registre.

Any reference to condition in a condition report will not include a full description of condition, and for example, may not specify all faults, alteration, adaptation, mechanical replacements or imperfections to the movement, case, or dial. Colors and shades may look different online or in printed materials than they look on physical inspection, and images may not clearly show the condition of a lot. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot in person and make their own evaluation of the lot.
