Racing time: Audemars Piguet’s limited edition QEII Cup 2016

What’s more exciting than an international horse race event? A limited edition Audemars Piguet designed just for the occasion. This year, Audemars Piguet is presenting the 18th edition of the Audemars Piguet Queen Elizabeth II (QEII) Cup with The Hong Kong Jockey Club. To commemorate the event, Audemars Piguet has created a Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph QEII Cup 2016, limited to only 200 pieces.


This timepiece is also water resistant up to 100 meters.

The watch is made with exquisite craftsmanship and precious materials and features a case adorned with an 18-carat pink gold bezel and black ceramic screw-locked crown and pushpieces. The black “Méga Tapisserie” patterned dial embellished with pink gold hour-markers enables this timepiece to stay true to the masculine aesthetics of the Royal Oak Offshore collection.

With a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour and a 50-hour power reserve, this watch is the ultimate sports timepiece.

The QEII Cup has become one of the most important social events in Hong Kong since it was established in 1975. This year, with this impeccably made timepiece, this event is going to be the most highly anticipated yet.
