Limited Edition of 250. Exclusive in-house AP movement.
This “Pride of China” limited edition piece of 250 worldwide features AP’s high complication movement, designed just for this model (calibre 3123).
This is the only AP Royal Oak limited edition that explicitly celebrates the importance of China, and pays tributes to the rise of the Chinese collectors. The back case has a relief engraving of the Great Wall of China, and the wording “Royal Oak Pride of China Limited Edition.”
It is extremely desirable, and the special edition is sold out everywhere. It makes a great collectible for many reasons: movement, metal combination, and the only Chinese tribute watch. This is the only one available on the site – make sure you seize the opportunity before it is too late.
This is a beautiful interplay of multi-polished steel and solid rose gold. The finishing of the watch is exquisite (alternate between matte, high-polish, and brushed finish) and requires many hours of labor by skilled AP craft-men. These different types of finishings create a “play of light” effect when you examine the watch from different angles. The watch is even more visually stunning because of the tasteful placement of solid rose gold. The 18K rose gold is placed on the bezel, markers, hands, crown, and links of the bracelet.
The watch shows the power reserve at 2 O’clock, the date at 6 O’clock, the moon-phase at 9 O’clock, and even boasts a central sweeping second hand – this is the only Royal Oak that has this intricate movement design.
The model measures 42 mm with the crown (39.5mm without crown) – a very elegant dress watch for the gentleman.
In mint condition, wore carefully only for a handful of times. Comes with full set of links that would fit a wrist of up to 7.5 inches
