Luxury swiss watch maker Audemars Piguet teamed up with soccer great Lionel Messi (pictured below) to produce the Royal Oak ‘Leo Messi’ limited edition watch series.
Based on the new 41mm Royal Oak chronograph which is limited to 1000 pieces globally, the watch is available in either steel/tantalum, pink gold/tantalum or platinum/tantalum and it houses a self-winding mechanical calibre 2385 movement. I especially like the pink gold/tantalum version, as that is certainly something that one does not come across very often. The steel and platinum versions are of course more every day casual friendly. The watches all come with alligator straps and with an additional sportier rubber strap, both replacing the more traditional stell strap.
The price of the the Leo Messi Royal Oak chronograph ranges from $30,400 for the steel/tantalum model, $51,400 for the pink gold/tantalum and $83,300 for the platinum/tantalum.
