Well, it certainly seems as though the luxury Swiss watch brand Audemars Piguet is making efforts to spread its name and products all around the world. Just recently, the brand announced its sponsorship of the Russian ballet as well as signing the ballet’s principal dancer as a new brand ambassador; perhaps the first time ever a watch brand has done such a thing.
And now, AP (as Audemars Piguet in known in the industry) is making a special “Pride of Mexico” watch to celebrate Mexico’s 200 years of Independence from Spain.
Using the infamously popular Royal Oak Offshore style, AP will come out with this limited edition watch, obviously geared toward the wealthy Mexican market.
Available in just 300 pieces, this watch is created from 19K rose gold or titanium and comes in a 42mm size. The rose gold series will offer 100 pieces and the titanium series will have 200.
The standard Royal Oak features remain; meaning the octagonal shape, steel edges, and use of hexagonal screws. What will make this watch unique are the color of the hour hands (green) and the red chronograph seconds hand, set against a white dial finished in “Mega Tappiserie” as these are the colors of the Mexican flag. Engraved on the case back is the Angel of Independence that commemorates the 200 years.
The watch runs on the Audemars Piguet Calibre 2326/2804 automatic chronograph movement and comes with a black crocodile strap with green stitching and either a gold or steel buckle. The watch is water resistant to 100 meters and has 38 hours of power reserve.
With only 300 of these special “Pride of Mexico” watches being made, they are sure to go for more than other watches from the Royal Oak Offshore collection, but with that many, if not more millionaires in Mexico, sales should not be a problem.
