Millenary Watch with Deadbeat Seconds

    The Cabinet N° 5 watch in the Tradition d’Excellence collection, introduced in 2006, features the unique Audemars Piguet escapement. Inspired by a mechanism created in the late 18th century by Robert Robin, Audemars Piguet has developed a brand-new system combining the high efficiency of a direct-impulse escapement with the reliability of a Swiss-lever escapement. The watchmakers in Le Brassus have thereby succeeded in reducing the energy lost by the most high-consumption component of the movement, without resorting to the use of new materials and avoiding any need for lubrication.
