With my Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph of 18k rosegold back from service I felt an urge to shoot yet another "Daily Essentials" including new shirt from Sumisura.com, Ray-Ban Caravan, Mont Blanc pencil, Levi's belt and the latest issue of Japanese Men's Club (which in NOT a porn mag, mind you).,
Min gode ven S M inviterede til en halv fridag i sin have og mellem de ufatteligt mange glas vin nåede jeg også at nyde hans Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Michael Schumacher af rødguld og cermet.
François-Henry Bennahmias (48) was nominated CEO of Audemars Piguet in January of this year and this month Jean-Christophe Babin (51) announced that he will leave TAG Heuer coming Summer for Bulgari. Bennahmias took over from former Maurice Lacroix boss Philippe Merck who left after just a few years.
While looking at the insanely pretty Ferrari F138 F1-car for the new season my mind drifted off. Hublot is now the official watch sponsor/supplier of the Scuderia and is set to be displayed on the high profile cars and drivers and also the rest of the team. That means that Felipe Massa will no longer be wearing his Richard Mille in the cockpit. But will he wear a Big Bang? And that question spurred another question; what is the ultimate F1 pilot’s watch of choice in the cockpit?
Let me start by saying that these pictures originate from sheer coincedence. I am not an AP ambassador (and WHY NOT??). I just happen to have friends who share the same love for the 39 millimetre Royal Oaks. And that was indeed proven last week, during a lunch and two coffee meetings at my local hang out.
This headline is not taken from the your relationship status on Facebook (or is it)? The complication lies instead in the incredible Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Grande Complication which I saw at the SIHH 2013. A 44 millimetre novelty that will make only six owners happy as it is only offered in 3 titanium versions and 3 pinkgold versions, both fitted with black ceramic bezel.
Not so long ago I met with Tim Sayler from Audemars Piguet (during the 40th Royal Oak anniversary exhibition in Paris) and during the interview he was wearing one of my dream watches, the ever so cool Concept Tourbillon GMT. Met with Tim again during SIHH this year and again he made me drool. Twice. On the first occasion Sayler wore the incredible sexy Millenary Tourbillon Carbon 1, which not only is avery different watch compared to any Royal Oak. It is also a study of complicated haute horlogerie, all boxed up in a off-centered carbon case. Dead-sexy, as Mike Myers would say.
Jeg er overbevist om, at Audemars Piguets marketing ansvarlige har mig i tankerne, hver gang vi mødes. Under alle omstændigheder løber mine tænder og øjne i vand, når han hiver op i ærmet og afslører det ene fede Audemars Piguet efter det andet. Du husker måske mit første møde med Sayler under 40 års Royal Oak udstillingen i Paris?
