Introducing The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore “Pride of Indonesia” Limited Edition (Specs & Price)

AP-Royal-Oak-Offshore-Pride-of-Indonesia-5

Created for a nation where the Audemars Piguet Offshore is deeply desirable, the Royal Oak Offshore “Pride of Indonesia” is a 100-piece limited edition in titanium and pink gold with the national emblem Garuda Pancasila on the case back.

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore “Pride of Indonesia” is an old school 42mm Offshore in titanium, with the crown and pushers covered in synthetic rubber (not the ceramic of the current Offshore).  The case back is in pink gold case and decorated with a relief of Garuda Pancasila, an eagle that’s the national symbol of Indonesia. The dial is dark grey with a brushed finish, an unusual look for the Offshore which typically features dials decorated with the checkerboard “mega tapisserie” guilloche. And the numerals, hands, sub-dials and flange are gilded in pink gold.

Underneath the pink gold case back is the calibre 3126/3840, AP’s in-house automatic movement with a Dubois-Depraz chronograph module on top.

AP has been more judicious with limited editions since the current chief executive Francois Bennahmias took over, so such Offshores are appearing at a lower frequency than before. The Pride of Indonesia is the sixth in the “Pride” series, after Russia (2005), China (2008), Mexico and Argentina (both in 2010), and most recently Thailand (2013), all middle income countries with a high Gini coefficient.  The very first Pride of Indonesia, numbered 001/100, will be auctioned for charity during the launch event today, with all the proceeds going to the National Museum of Indonesia. The Pride of Indonesia (ref. 26179IR.OO.A005CR.01) is fitted to a dark grey alligator strap with a titanium tang buckle with a pink gold pin. It’s limited to 100 pieces, with a retail price of S$53,400, and available at Audemars Piguet boutiques in Jakarta and Singapore.

Breitling Introduces The Aerospace Evo Night Mission In Black Titanium (With Specs & Price)

Breitling-Aerospace-Evo-Night-Mission-Yellow-1

Arguably the original Swiss smart watch, the Breitling Aerospace celebrates its 30th anniversary this year with a new black titanium version as well as a yellow dial limited edition.

Now 30 years old the Breitling Aerospace made its debut in 1985 as possibly the first hybrid analogue-digital wristwatch. At the time it was remarkably high tech and also sleek – all its functions were controlled by the crown. The new Aerospace Evo Night Mission keeps all the signature features of the Aerospace – twin LCD displays with a single crown – with a thermo-compensated Superquartz movement in a black coated titanium case. And for the 30th anniversary, there’s a 300-piece limited edition Aerospace Evo Night Mission with a bright yellow dial. In the typical tradition of Breitling’s over the top pilot’s watches, the Aerospace has all the bells and whistles. The calibre 79 inside is a COSC certified multifunction quartz movement with thermo-compensation, meaning it is regulated to account for the effects of temperature on the quartz oscillator.  The movement features night vision goggle compatible backlight, 1/100th of a second chronograph, countdown timer, second timezone, alarm, minute repeater, leap-year calendar, and battery end-of-life indicator. 

The titanium case is 43mm with the characteristic “rider tabs” on the bezel, and a sapphire crystal with antireflective coating on both sides. The strap is a dark brown canvas with a deployant clasp.

The yellow dial 30e anniversaire version is limited to 300 pieces, while the black dial model is part of the regular collection. Both are priced at US$5740.
