Audemars Piguet Royal Oak “Pride of China” Limited Edition Power Reserve Moonphase. 18K Solid Rose Gold and Steel.
This “Pride of China” limited edition piece of 250 worldwide features AP’s high complication movement, designed just for this model (calibre 3123).
This is the only AP Royal Oak limited edition that explicitly celebrates the importance of China, and pays tributes to the rise of the Chinese collectors. The back case has a relief engraving of the Great Wall of China, and the wording “Royal Oak Pride of China Limited Edition”
It is an extremely desirable and special edition is sold out everywhere. It is also extremely collectible for many reasons (movement, metal combination, and the only Chinese tribute watch). This is only one available on the site – make sure you seize the opportunity before it is too late.
This is a beautiful interplay of multi-polished steel case and solid rose gold. The finishing of the watch is exquisite (alternate between matte, high-polish and brushed finish) and requires many hours of labors by skilled AP craft-men. These different types of finishing create a “play of light” effect when you examine the watch from different angles. The watch is even more visually stunning because of the tasteful placement of solid rose gold. The 18K rose gold is placed on the bezel, markers, hands, crown and links of the bracelet.
The watch shows power reserve at 2’O clock, date at 6’O clock, moon-phase at 9’O clock and central sweeping second hand – this is the only Royal Oak that has this movement design.
The model measures 42 mm with the crown (39.5mm without crown) – a very elegant dress watch for the gentleman.
In mint condition, wore carefully only for a handful of times. Comes with full set of links that would fit a wrist of up to 7.5 inches

Water Resistance - Although we may pressure test a watch prior to being shipped, we do not guarantee any watch to be waterproof and do not cover any water issues under any type of warranty. The reason is because there are too many life factors that can contribute to a watch not being water resistant anymore. Statistically, this applies to even the most careful of watch wearers ...show moreshow less
Box and Papers - All box and papers do is guarantee the box and papers are authentic. The bad guys know that people put trust into original papers so by putting genuine papers with a fake watch allows them to pull off a scam...and when the buyer finds out down the road the watch was fake, the scammer is long gone. The only way to check authenticity is by having the watch checked. As with most preowned watches, the original box and/or papers are not available because they were not retained by the original owner. ...show moreshow less
