The renowned Audemars Piguet boutique in New York has reopened its doors with a stunning makeover, courtesy of a unique takeover by Cactus Jack, the label founded by Travis Scott. This transformative collaboration introduced an aesthetic overhaul both inside and out, marking the launch of an exciting new partnership between the iconic watch brand and the innovative label. The highlight of this collaboration is the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar “Cactus Jack” Limited Edition, a timepiece that brilliantly merges Audemars Piguet’s watchmaking excellence with Cactus Jack’s distinctive style. Crafted in “chocolate” brown ceramic, this watch is a first for Audemars Piguet, featuring a 41 mm case and bracelet studs in this unique material. The piece, affectionately dubbed “the chocolate AP” by Travis Scott, is accentuated with white gold hexagonal screws and a sapphire dial that showcases the openworked Calibre 5135 movement.
In addition to the watch, the collaboration also includes an exclusive clothing and accessories collection. This range, encompassing hoodies, T-shirts, jackets, pajamas, shorts, and caps, will be sold exclusively on Travis Scott’s website. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to a charity of Scott’s choosing, underscoring the philanthropic aspect of this partnership. Design-wise, the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar features several nods to Cactus Jack’s graphics, including a unique moon phase at 6 o’clock displaying the label’s emblematic smiley face. The watch’s luminous design elements create a distinctive night-time effect, further highlighting the innovative collaboration.
This limited edition of 200 pieces, engraved with the phrase “Utopia is a state of mind,” symbolizes the merging of worlds and the shared vision of Audemars Piguet and Travis Scott. The all-new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar “Cactus Jack” Limited Edition is limited to only 200 pieces with a price tag of $201,000.
