Audemars Piguet creates a mechanical wrist watch designed specifically for use in motorsport to measure and record an extended series of consecutive lap times. The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Laptimer Michael Schumacher is the first motorsport-specific watch to feature a complication imagined by the celebrated driver, with two angular indexing systems on a single chronograph, each with an independent memory.
This third pushpiece makes it possible to simultaneously stop either of the two chronograph hands, while returning the other hand to zero and restarting it - meaning that, while the time of the most recent lap is being noted down, timing of the next lap is already underway. The watch therefore negates the need for two or more hand-held timing devices, streamlining the operation within a single wrist chronograph.
