Salon des Vignerons Indépendants Paris Porte de Versailles - 22/11 au 26/11
Stand B 40

As you'd expect from AP, this watch has excellent movement finishing , particularly on the large, exposed, proprietary escapement, with big balance wheel and beautifully hand-finished bridge. This escapement has bitten into the off centre dial. A dial that looks decidedly traditional with its roman numerals and exposed screws. The sub seconds dial takes another chunk out the main dial , and the day and month windows add a few more holes. It's a complicated looking, aesthetically busy watch, and that's before we even get to the complication.
