First Louis Audemars stem-wound (bridge) movement was shipped on 25th March 1838.
.............addition to the site. If there is anything I can do with the Louis Audemars archive I will be happy to help.
Well Ethan, not being a serious collector or dealer or any kind of horological guru, I figure I'm (occasionally) allowed these amateurish leaps of...
Just curiosity on my part.
Louis Audemars were movement suppliers to Jurgensen but there is scant evidence of it in the archive. We know they...
What is that other, slightly blurred, serial number at the top of the sixth photograph, please?
Made in the Neuchatel region -
My LA watch has a similar movement (albeit with the configuration reversed) and dates from 1874.
I think we'd all like to see a shot of the movement as well, please.
Nick, see my reply on your other thread about the same watch. Moderators please note.
As I have told you in our private exchanges, there is - as far as I know - no surviving archive material for Audemars Frères. Marty is...
It would also be good to have a clearer shot (taken vertically) of marks and numbers punched inside the case. Marks scratched by hand can be...

Well, at the time of the W-I-P book entry, it is unlikely the dial would already have been on the movement, so the 18 lignes may well refer to the...

5381 is in a work-in-progress ledger dated 31st December 1857...
Thank you, gentlemen.
That's very helpful.
Is this the Neuchatel mark?
And if so, why might it appear in the case of an - alleged - Louis Audemars watch?
Well the internal clicks might have been patented in 1879 by whoever, but as previously posted LA were making them in the 1860s and possibly...
I'd be a LOT happier if
a) there was a different serial number on the movement.
b) that number was in my (sadly incomplete) archive with a better...
I take it back.
I just leafed through Zantke's illustrations and there are several examples of those clicks which he dates variously to between...
