What is a ��Grande Complication��? The layman would compare it to an intricate maze, whereas a watchmaker would say that a major complication allows a timepiece to reveal more about time. The master watchmaker - a virtuoso of arrangements that might seem improbable to others, enamoured of fine workmanship as well as cutting-edge technology �� knows that a Grande Complication takes the finishing process to the limit. Yet again, this proves how the hand of a skilled craftsman makes all the difference. Complications can be classified in three categories.

The first consists of watches with one or several additional hands to indicate the time (e.g. the chronograph, split-seconds and jumping seconds chronographs).

The second contains all watches featuring striking mechanisms.

The third refers to watches with mechanisms that provide astronomical indications (e.g. date,
moon phase and equation of time).

The prestigious " Grande Complication " designation is bestowed upon a watch that possesses at least four different functions out of these three categories. It takes great mastery to create a timepiece offering excellence in every department: design and reliability, as well as precision. The Calibre 2885 by the Manufacture Audemars Piguet is a case in point.

Fourteen lignes in diameter (31.60 mm) and 8.55 mm thick, this self-winding mechanical watch is endowed with a split-seconds chronograph, a minute repeater and a perpetual calendar with moon-phase functions.

Audemars Piguet is a notable brand - and the Royal Oak Grande Complication is a notable watch. AP has traditionally been a part of the so-called 'Big Three' - the other two being Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin. However, Audemars Piguet has been drawing rather heavily on its Royal Oak heritage in the last few years, causing the name to be almost synonymous with the decisively sporty and rugged Offshore for the almost a decade. Still, AP has a rich pedigree when it comes to complications and can be considered somewhat of a specialist when it comes to the traditional 'Grande Complication'. But that's not where it ends. Audemars Piguet has been one of the first to merge its tradition in haute horlogerie with its tradition in sports watches, perhaps creating a new segment in the blink of an eye - that of extreme high-end, haute horlogerie sports watches. The present Royal Oak is an example of this: the sporty and emblematic Royal Oak design is paired with an ultra-complex movement, though the emblematic look of Gerald Genta is still very much present. Selfwinding watch with perpetual calendar indicating the day, date, week, moon phases, month, leap years, minute repeater, split-seconds chronograph and small seconds at 9 o'clock. 18-carat white gold case, blue dial, 18-carat white gold bracelet.
