Audemars Piguet has unveiled several jaw-dropping timepieces this year as part of the 50th-anniversary celebration of the iconic Royal Oak. However, its newest iteration is arguably the most spectacular.
The Swiss watchmaker has unveiled the one-of-one Royal Oak Selfwinding Chronograph “One Drop” special edition, which will be auctioned off in person at the One Drop Foundation’s La Cuvée event in Las Vegas on November 12. The philanthropy organization, whose mission it is to help communities around the globe have access to clean water and sanitation, is celebrating its 15th anniversary with this gala.
The chronograph houses its caliber 4401 automatic movement in a 41mm black ceramic case with a blue satin-finished dial. While AP’s new watch will be the marquee of this upcoming event, the company is no stranger to the One Drop Foundation’s auctions. Back in 2019, the brand helped raise $220,000 with another unique Royal Oak variant. Additionally, several other of its timepieces have been donated by others to help benefit the charity.
Held November 12 in Las Vegas, La Cuvée One Drop 2022 will also include dinner by the team at Rivea by Alain Ducasse, an exclusive performance from Cirque du Soleil, and the auction featuring the one-off Royal Oak as well as other phenomenal trips and experiences.
