Audemars Piguet’s Chinese dedicated watch

Audemars Piguet unveiled its first time ever a Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar limited edition in full titanium exclusively crafted for the Chinese market. This limited edition of 88 pieces celebrates the Manufacture’s enduring history with China.
This perpetual calendar model features an ultra-light titanium case and bracelet hand-finished with an alternation of satin-brushed and polished surfaces. The slate grey “Grande Tapisserie” dial provides a delicate contrast with the black subdials and inner bezel as well as the white hour-markers. The colour red of the week-indication hand subtly evokes Chinese traditional symbol of happiness and passion.
The watch comes with two additional straps: a red rubber strap which echoes the dial’s touch of colour and a grey hand-stitched alligator strap matching with the case and dial aesthetics.
This limited edition, which will be exclusively available in China, was developed in collaboration with Austen Chu (@horoloupe) who contributed towards the overall aesthetics. Austen has been able to organically share his passion for watches with a growing fan base on Instagram over the past few years and became part of the AP family after visiting the Manufacture in Le Brassus in 2017.
