Among the most iconic case designs in the history of watchmaking is the so-called ‘cioccolatino’, Italian for “little chocolate”, i.e. a square-shaped watch reminiscent of - precisely - an appetising chocolate treat. But what happens when you have a 'cioccolatino' case in an unusual and above-average size?
Collectors call it a ‘cioccolatone’, Italian for “big chocolate”, and it is one of the rarest and most coveted models of all, produced by very few companies and in very few examples. In this case, we have a beautiful Audemars Piguet in pink gold, with a hand-wound movement and champagne dial.
The watch, dating from 1952, is preserved in sensational condition. The signature on the dial is perfectly legible, the case is full, and the steps that characterise this fascinating design are vivid and sharp. Specimens like this are not easily found: don't miss out!
Case: 36 × 40 mm rose gold
Movement: Manual, cal. 13
