Dubbed “The Chocolate AP,” the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Openworked “Cactus Jack” Limited Edition showcases a ceramic build in a rich brown hue, measuring 41mm in case diameter and featuring the brand’s signature silhouette with eight white gold hexagonal screws on the bezel. The sapphire dial frames the intricate openworked Calibre 5135, accented with rhodium and pink gold-hued components.
The dial incorporates design elements inspired by Cactus Jack’s graphics, including the replacement of the moon phase with Cactus Jack’s smiley face on the 6 o’clock subdial. The limited-edition timepiece comes with a textured calfskin strap engraved with both the Maison and Travis Scott’s signatures, complete with a pink gold folding clasp.
Travis Scott expressed his enthusiasm for the collaboration, stating, “Watchmaking, to me, is the ultimate combination of engineering, fashion, tech, and design — a harmony of precision, craftsmanship, and perfect timing. I approached this collaboration similar to sampling or starting a beat, taking inspiration from classics while introducing innovation to push them into the future. I’m beyond amped about the results, a first-ever for the iconic Royal Oak. For it to be my brother Francois’ final project as CEO of AP makes it even more epic – we are sending him out with a Mega epic mic drop … LETTTSSSSS GOOOOOO.”
The Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Openworked “Cactus Jack” Limited Edition is limited to a production of only 200 examples. Those interested in acquiring the timepiece can inquire via Audemars Piguet.
