Audemars Piguet [RE]Master02 (Ref: 15240SG.OO.A347CR.01) (Add your watch to the comments below…)

Audemars Piguet caliber 7129 is a thin profile 2-hander watch movement. The 7129 has 31 jewels and a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vph). The new 7129 based on the AP 7121 (of 2022 Royal Oak Jumbo fame), with modifications to make the 7129 a true no-date caliber.

In Audemar Piguet’s own words:

“[RE]Master02 houses the Calibre 7129, an extra-thin hour and minute movement without date indication that is based on the Calibre 7121.” –Source

Audemars Piguet Caliber 7129 Remaster

AP Remaster02:

The calibre 7129 is found in the 20204 [RE]Master02 butalist style reissue watch. This 1960s throwback model and movement were announced on May 31, 2024. It is a limited edition with only 250 pieces available worldwide.

The 41mm asymmetric case is constructed out of what AP has dubbed “sand gold” – an 18K gold alloy. The case is stamped Au 750 with gold maker’s marks. The rotor, with matching brutalist-like asymmetrical styling, is 22K gold.

Although the second Remaster is an automatic timepiece, it is only 9.7mm thick, in part thanks to the ultra slim 2.8mm caliber 7129 inside.

The retail price is $47,200 USD.

Audemars Piguet Caliber 7129 Remaster02 Brutalist

Editor’s Commentary:

It is absurd that members of the watch community are comparing the launch of this piece to the just released (May 9, 2024) Toledano & Chan B/1 (the caliber of which is mentioned here). Interest in brutalism is seeing a recent resurgence across various industries. With that in mind, it’s common to see trends influence niches like ours, especially when the trend already existed at some point in time, and we can expect to see more. While AP may have made public the announcement of the [RE]Master02, it certainly was not in reaction to a 175 run microbrand watch from a new brand’s first entry into the market. AP’s product planning is longer than 22 days lol, try a year give or take. Not that big brands don’t steal ideas from smaller brands, but in this case, AP didn’t have to borrow or steal anything since it is literally an homage to their own previous design: the 5159BA from 1960. If anything, the modern interpretations of asymmetric and so-called brutalist style watch silhouettes are borrowing from designs of yesterday – and it really isn’t a 2-way street. But we already know that, so why bother putting forth such a silly association?
