Audemars Piguet timepiece on a Rolls-Royce Coachbuild, La Rose Noire Droptail
By SENATUS Magazine | 29 August 2023

Rolls-Royce La Rose Noire Droptail’s fascia is provisioned with an integrated one-off timepiece by Audemars Piguet, specially commissioned by the clients.

The 43mm Royal Oak Concept Split-Seconds Chronograph GMT Large Date is powered by a unique self-winding Calibre 4407 movement, featuring a flyback chronograph and a split-seconds mechanism. Masterfully matched to La Rose Noire’s colourway, it incorporates red counters and a red inner bezel, providing a bright contrast to the black ‘openworked’ dial highlighted with rhodium-toned bevels.

Integrating the timepiece presented a significant challenge: the clients requested that it should both be mounted in the motor car and also be removable, so that it can be attached to a strap and worn. This was realised with a powered clasp mechanism that gently presents the timepiece at the touch of a button.
