When it comes to paying homage to a very successful and timeless design, the world's best manufacturers will spare no expense and spend countless man hours to create an ultra complicated timepiece.
In the case of the Audemars Piguet Grande Complication Skeleton, a single watch maker from the manufacture will be responsible for creating this magnificent timepiece where only the few lucky collectors may acquire one. Unfortunately these Audemars Piguet pieces will not be available for the mass market, but thosee retailers and dealers who have a very strong relationship with Audemars Piguet will gain access for special ordering.
What you see here is a representation of how single handed absolute precision can be truly crafted with the right hands. In order for a timepiece to receive the title of "Grande Complication" the piece must have more than three complications on the same piece aside from the simple ability of telling time.
Here on the 12'o clock position you notice the moonphase indication while on the 3 and 9'o clock position you will have perpetual calender indications with the actual calender date on the 6 position.
A true masterpiece where only the select few can actually acquire one.

Luxury Watches Are Built to Last

The high-quality workmanship means that your luxury watch won’t die after going through a few batteries like a department store find. Your watch will become a staple that keeps excellent time for many years. It could easily become a family heirloom, passed down through generations.
A Luxury Watch Signifies Status
While some people may not realize how much value your watch has, other luxury watch aficionados will instantly recognize that your timepiece is a valuable, high-quality item. Luxury watches are a subtle status indicator, particularly the finest brands that have small followings. If you’re aiming for the CEO’s office, you’ll need a timepiece that says you belong there.
Luxury Watches Have Investment Value
Some luxury watches are constructed of precious metals, which increase in value over time. There are also collectors of the most famous or well-made brands who actively seek out second-hand watches in their preferred brand. If you plan to keep your watch and resell it as an investment at a later date, be sure to purchase a watch constructed of valuable materials from a brand that has a collector following.

In the luxury market, some brands are new and trendy while others derive a significant portion of their appeal from having a history of fine craftsmanship and high demand. The history of quality makes these brands recognizable. Hermés is one such brand that has been recognized for quality for decades.
History of Hermés
The Hermés brand was founded by Thierry Hermés in Paris. He originally worked as a saddler, making leather goods for horsemen and carrying other riding supplies. By the mid-1800s, Hermés had established his name among horsemen because of the excellent workmanship that was displayed in his wares. The Hermés brand was a coveted label long before the company began branching out into watches and other goods.
Origins of Hermés Watches
The Hermés brand began producing luxury watches in the 1950s, after it had already found success with jackets and handbags. The watches were diverse, offering traditional leather banding as well as bracelet women’s watches, which were very fashionable at the time they were produced and have held their value as collectors’ items. The leather items featured the quality leather saddle stitching that had made the original brand famous. Contemporary Hermés watches are valued for an essentially classic look with subtle modern highlights. The materials continue to come from the highest quality sources.
Buying Hermés Watches
Hermés luxury watch buyers should be careful to verify the authenticity of their Hermés purchase. Using a trusted buyer who can authenticate a watch and checking online retailers’ credentials are a good idea. When you find an online offer, be sure to verify the model number with real model numbers created by the brand.
