When it comes to the world of watches one of the most stalwart brands in the business is none other than Audemars Piguet. The Swiss manufacturer has decided to introduce a limited-edition full titanium take on the standard Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar for the Chinese market.
Having been in the market for over 65 years with all manner of different iterations and using different materials, this sees Audemars Piguet employing titanium to encase its latest timepiece in.
Made in collaboration with the Instagram watch-collector Austen Chu, the piece exudes a sporty yet sophisticated presence with an ultra-light titanium case that weighs just 104g.
Featuring a slate grey dial with a “Grande Tapisserie” pattern contrasted with black sub-dials, the white hour markers and recent accents really stick out to make reading the time easier.
Equipped with a caliber 5134 movement, it has a respectable 40-hour power reserve.
According to Audemars Piguet, it only intends to make 88 pieces, a subtle nod to the prosperous number ‘8’ that is favoured by Chinese. In addition, the piece comes with an auspicious red strap and a grey hand-stitched alligator.
You can find the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar China Limited Edition is available at Audemars Piguet‘s boutique’s in China for USD78,3000.
