Serving as Official Timekeeper of the Tour Auto for the sixth year running, Audemars Piguet is launching a limited edition watch to commemorate the event.
With its distinctly retro touch, the 2011 Audemars Piguet Millenary Tour Auto Chronograph masterfully captures the vintage spirit of the Tour Auto race.
The new watch is available with a 47 mm case, fashioned from steel. Its back side is embossed with the Tour Auto logo.
Housed in the case is a black dial, with its circular-grained surfaces reminding of the finish on certain historical cars.
It is circled by a flange with a tachometric scale. The display features a three-hand layout. Moreover, it is equipped with silver-toned hour, minute and seconds counters. The date indication is arranged between 4 and 5 o’clock.
The functions, provided by the new Audemars Piguet Millenary Tour Auto 2011 watch, are driven by an in-house manufactured automatic AP caliber 2385 movement.
It operates at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour and offers a 40-hour power reserve.
The new Audemars Piguet watch is accompanied by a hand-sewn black leather strap with a lozenge-pattern stitching.
The model is issued in a limited edition of 150 pieces and is delivered in a presentation box.
