To celebrate this year’s edition of Universal Exhibition in Milan, Swiss watch manufacture Audemars Piguet has created a special limited edition of the Royal Oak Chronograph, which pays tribute to both Italy and the city of Milan.
The Italian touch is found in the details, such as the indices on the 30-minute counter; which borrow the iconic green, red and white of the Italian flag. Other special features not to be missed: the caseback bears the engraving “Swiss Made Limited Edition” and the material of the strap – rubber – is truly unique. In fact, in the past, a chronograph Royal Oak – the City of Sails model, created in 2002 – was the only watch to feature this material.
The watch, available in a limited edition of 500 pieces, will also include a hand-stitched "large square scale" blue alligator strap inside its presentation box. Specially made, the box features a metal plate that reproduces the watch's caseback with the colours of the Italian flag.
