Unique watch spotted in space

First published: 09-08-2011

Space is hardly the first place you think of when considering where to do a little bit of timepiece seeking but that's just where Hodinkee reported spotting a unique watch.

The blog said it spied an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Grande Complication complete with a PVD case around the wrist of a red-nosed astronaut.

"It's a freaking unique perpetual calendar, split seconds, minute repeating grande complication from one of the most storied manufacturers in the world."

It stems from a collection that boasts two dimensions to choose from, as well as being unidirectionally self-winding.

It comes with an astonishing 50-hour power reserve and is encrusted with 52 jewels.

It's a sporty looking design than maintains more than a hint of grandeur.

Hodinkee added: "This unique PVD Grande Comp has to be the most complicated and expensive watch to ever hit the stars."

Is anyone else beginning to wonder if another sort of star will start sporting the piece?
