Audemars Piguet Watch to Support Abruzzo nel Cuore' Foundation

Oct 05, 2009
The exceptional Royal Oak Abruzzo Tourbillon Chronograph watch from Audemars Piguet has recently been auctioned off in order to render financial assistance to the The Abruzzo nel Cuore’ foundation.

The sum realized from selling the timepiece, alongside with such Formula 1 racing items as helmets from popular race car drivers Jenson Button, Mark Webber, Sebastien Buemi, David Coulthard, and Jarno Trulli, which present a great interest to the collectors, amounts to 215,000 dollars.

The management decided on Singapore for the event to be conducted. The timepiece auctions, held in the city, usually bring amazing results.

The Audemars Piguet exclusive creation, this timepiece exposes an appealing design.
While being at the cutting edge of technology, the style of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Abruzzo Tourbillon Chronograph hearkens back to the original Royal Oak watches from the 1970’s. It is clearly reflected in the hour markers, hands and the “mega tapestry” embellishment on the dial.

The model in question features a 30-minute chronograph, which happens to be much more sophisticated than most of its counterparts incorporated in Audemars Piguet timepieces. This watch is also notable for its remarkable tourbillon complication, which is a distinctive flair of the Royal Oak watch collection.

Featuring a sandblasted titanium case, the timepiece is accompanied by a fine strap finished with a folding titanium buckle.

Watches.InfoNIAC.com thinks that the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Abruzzo Tourbillon Chronograph watch is definitely one of the most austere models across the spectrum of the brand’s latest releases.
