Audemars Piguet

Pre-Owned Royal Oak Tradition d'Excellence Cabinet No. 4

Sold Out

  • The Tradition d’Excellence collection began in 1999 with the release of the Cabinet No.1, and since then, five watches in the series have been released, limited to just 20 pieces each. There will be eight watches to complete the series, to be housed in a marquetry cabinet specially built in the Vallée de Joux. As tributes to the technical genius of the company founders, every Cabinet watch represents the state-of-the-art in a certain aspect or genre of watchmaking.

    The Cabinet No.4 is the most contemporary-looking and sportiest of the Cabinet watches, being housed in a familiar Royal Oak case. The silvered 'Grande Tapisserie' dial is opened in places to reveal the huge drums and tourbillon, but a most unusual dial-side element is arguably the the dual power reserve: a 120-degree track spans the lower part of the dial to point out the very substantial 10-day power reserve. On the last day, a subdial below the 30-minute register takes over, providing a high resolution reading of the power reserve over the final 24 hours of running time.

    Our pictures are an important part of the condition report – please scrutinize them in detail and feel free to ask any questions.
