Audemars Piguet Royal Oak offshore Jarno Trulli on Sale

We are bringing you this Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Jarno Trulli Limited Edition Ref. 26202AU.OO.D002CA.01 launched in 2010 during the Formula One Japanese Grand Prix.

While Italian F1 driver Jarno Trulli only had a short stint in Formula One from 1997 to 2011, driving for Minardi, Renault and Lotus Racing amongst others, he was able to have Audemars Piguet immortalize him with his very own Royal Oak Offshore Limited Edition after becoming an AP ambassador in 2008.

While Jarno Trulli could never be compared to Michael Schumacher, at least their limited edition Offshores are somewhat up to par.

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Jarno Trulli Limited Edition is one of the most fascinating watches ever designed by AP with Formula One in mind.

Fitted with cermet bezel, sand-blasted titanium pushers and crown, a 42 mm forged carbon case and a black rubber strap, the Jarno Trulli is one of the most unique looking Offshores and one that is truly hard to find in the U.S.  or Asia, as only 500 pieces were ever made of this timepiece.

Forged carbon case, cermet bezel, sand-blasted titanium crown and pushpieces, glareproofed sapphire crystal, sandblasted titanium sapphire caseback engraved with the legend “Royal Oak Offshore – Jarno Trulli” and with the “Jarno” signature appearing in red on the crystal

Ref #26202AU.OO.D002CA.01

Anthracite dial with “Méga Tapisserie” pattern, silver-toned counters, white gold applied hour-markers and hands with luminescent coating, silver-toned inner bezel

Black rubber strap with sand-blasted titanium AP folding clasp

List price was US$38,300 normally you get less 10% to less 15% Max.

Now I have one with 98% new full set, asking HK$180,000

Rolex : Stop Charging Premium for Daytona Ref 116500LN

Interesting Article about Rolex Singapore stops their main distributors to sell more than the list price.

But I don't think that Hour Glass, Sincere or whoever will be able to make a public open sales at MSRP SGD$18,000 (HK$98,640).

In HK, the current price of Daytona Ref 116500LN White is HK$131,000 lowest and Black is HK$124,800 (lowest) at gray dealer hands. Don't think you can get one at Rolex AD with List price HK$90,500.

I don't think Rolex Can call for a Fair price in sales in the open market where the demand and supply is still the  Golden Rule.

If Rolex wants to control the price of Daytona down to MSRP price , well make more production and ship more as they do for Date just...

If not, Price of Daytona is still as hard as Diamond!

A Close up at the Tourbillon

The steel Master Ultra Thin Moon (ref. 1363540) is now available in white gold with a dark grey dial with the case being 39mm in diameter.

I was wearing a Pink gold Reverso similar to the one I used to have in 1989.... Miss those beautiful days with beautiful Reverso.

The Legendary Vacherson Constantin Ref 222 solid gold Watch

Vacheron Constantin made the reference 222 in 1977 to celebrate the firm's 222nd year of continuous watch production. The reference 222 was limited to 500 pieces in stainless steel, 120 pieces in stainless steel and gold and 100 pieces in gold. This watch has a close resemblance to the Patek Philippe Nautilus, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and IWC Ingenieur SL 1832.

“222” on steel was made in 500 pieces. This’s confirmed by number or reference we (me and other Italian owner) have filed (from 5220XX to 5224XX).There is 3 different types of dial.

“222” is antimagnetic and waterproof until 120 m. Bracelet is integrate with case. Clasp is not settable, and sealed with Maltese cross.
 It’s possible that steel version was made only in 1977, for anniversary. In fact all serials found are between 5220XX and 5224XX.

The one I show here is made with 18KT solid gold
Diameter: 37 mm
 Thickness: 6 mm
 Movement: VC 1121 Automatic made by JLC

It is massive, thin, elegant, simple and a legendary design of Vacheron Constantin, an Iconic model for Constantin. “222”.

In Chinese translation, “222” sounds like E E E, means Easy Easy and Easy!

This one is in my hands now, with the Box Special offer to HKWF VC fans.
