How did this idea become a reality? Serendipity? Stroke for genius (or geniuses in this case)? It was much simpler than that, says Mr Wiederrecht. The retrograde display wasn't invented by us. It was used by the greatest watchmakers, but it was primarily for pocket watches.
"In the 1980s, many watch brands started to make watches with retrograde power reserves indicators. However, to my knowledge, we were the first to create an additional module that allowed this type of display. This could have been applied to any small counter indication.
"I love the idea of retrograde indicators. It clearly delineates the beginning, end, and reset of cycles on watches dials. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Replica was interested in replacing the small,Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Replica
round counters that are commonly found on watch dials. I suggested a simple mechanism which would allow for an aesthetic and readability previously unimagined. Two retrograde indications were required, one on each side of the dial to replace the small day-of-the-month and day of week sub dials. The proposal was based on a Perpetual Calendar I already have called PME1.
"Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Replica joined us immediately. We worked hard and fast to realize what we had envisioned. This was how the 1989 Bi Retrograde Perpetual Calendar came to be.
It is hard to believe that something so complex like the one Mr Dubuis proposed could be realized with such fluidity as Mr Wiederrecht describes. He insists that Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Replica' talent and 14 years of experience as a watchmaker at the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Replica Grandes Complications workshops gave him extraordinary knowledge in assembling movements. He also had a great grasp of finishing techniques required by the Poincon de Geneve standards.
"It was only natural that the man took over the manufacturing of the movements we had decided to make. For my part, I have always had a passion and curiosity for fine and complicated watchmaking, but limited knowledge of the actual watchmaking."Nevertheless, I have a good grasp of what is possible to rethink and approach with fresh eyes where existing complications are concerned. As part of our collaborations,Fake Cartier watches
we developed new complications and drawings, and I submitted proposals to Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Replica' expertise.
We will never have the opportunity to interview Mr Dubuis about his thoughts on creating the first ever Bi-Retrograde perpetual calendar. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Replica published a 2014 interview, giving us a glimpse. "The beginning [having left Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Replica] of this new stage of my career was undoubtedly the creation a first perpetual calendar. The calendar was completely different from the conventional models. It had the months and days, along with a moon phase, on the upper portion of the dial. We created a bi-retrograde perpetual year in collaboration with Mr Wiederrecht, a skilled movement developer, and his team. It was easy for me to dedicate my intuition and instinct in watchmaking to the creation of a company named after me. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Replica was officially recorded on May 19, 1995, which also happened to be my wedding anniversary.
The significance of the venture Mr Dubuis embarked on with his friend is also evident by the watch he most often wore during his time at Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Replica (the company), his Sympathie Perpetual Moon Phase Watch, which featured a champagne dial.
