Created for a nation where the Audemars Piguet Offshore is deeply desirable, the Royal Oak Offshore "Pride of Indonesia" is a 100-piece limited edition in titanium and pink gold with the national emblem Garuda Pancasila on the case back. The Audemars Piguet “Pride” might arguably be the most successful limited edition series from its famous Royal Oak Offshore range, especially because the Pride was purposely built to create a strong connection and identity between the product and the culture of the country that it is paying homage to. Perhaps most striking of the “Pride” series with its titanium case and rose gold accents, the real connection to Indonesia comes in the form a large gold medallion with a finely engraved Garuda on the back and the hands of the watch that signify the red and white color of the Indonesian national flag – a white hand on the running seconds counter; red hands on the chrono totalizers; as well as red and white chronograph seconds hands. The inherent greyness of the brushed titanium surface is not just accentuated, but tastefully overwhelmed by the rose gold bezel ring that makes the dial literally glow gold from afar. It’s like finding a pot of treasure amidst a plain landscape. And nothing is more apt at describing Indonesia – a developing country that has cast troubled times aside and is now on the cusp of tremendous economic acceleration as the region’s fastest growing economy. Audemars Piguet is a manufacturer of ultra-luxury Swiss watches founded in 1875 by watch makers Jules-Louis Audemars and Edward-Auguste Piguet.
