Property of the original British owner Following a very good year for the owner, he decided to reward himself at Harrods by buying himself an elegant dress watch. Immediately attracted by the unusual look of the Star Wheel he bought it on the spot. Worn on a very few occasions, it has been kept in close to new condition even with its original strap. Made in a few variations, this is the rarer version where the bottom section of the dial is hand-engraved with floral patterns rather than the more common plain guilloche. We have only ever had one other example over 20 years of this variation in pink gold. It is only a question of time before this unusual design by Audemars Piguet becomes a classic.
