Drake's New Audemars Piguet Custom Watch Is Beautiful

Drake's new Audemars Piguet custom watch is amazing

Rapper Drake unearthed a limited edition Audemars Piguet watch. The routine for the music star.

In October 2019, Matthew Williams, designer and creator of the 1071 Alyx 9SM brand, and recently appointed artistic director of Givenchy, presented an Audemars Piguet watch customized on his Instagram account. Designed by the Parisians of Mad Paris, who regularly exercise their talents on bracelets from Rolex, Patek Philippe or Richard Mille by encrusting diamonds and sapphires of all colors, the design of Williams concerned a watch that did not have need to be brought up to date to tell the truth.

Popular with the richest and most famous, like Kanye West, Jay-Z, Justin Bieber or Neil Patrick Harris, the Royal Oak by Audemars Piguet was unveiled in 1972. The latter had caused a sensation with its angular shape and its design modern. At the time, watches were delicate, made of gold. Piguet's model had a dynamic appearance and was made of steel.

But as you might expect, the collab 'Alyx x Mad Paris x AP strikes a big blow. This Audemars has an industrial steel case and a brushed steel dial. The watchmaker's name and the inscription 1017 ALYX 9SM are obviously present. The buckle of the bracelet takes up the designer's signature form (to be seen by scrolling through the photos from his Instagram publication).

At the time of writing, only 40 copies of this customized Royal Oak have been sold, at a fairly high price of $ 47,995. With such a huge price, you could expect the wealthiest people on the globe to rush at it. And that's exactly what happened since Drake, currently the third richest rapper in the world according to Forbes, got hold of a model. This watch is indeed the last acquisition of the rapper from Toronto in this area.

Drake is used to wearing exceptional watches. We remember seeing him recently with his custom-made Rolex in collaboration with Chrome Hearts.

Please share, thank you.
