To commemorate the 14th anniversary of the Audemars Piguet Queen Elizabeth II (AP QEII) Cup in Hong Kong, a 100-piece limited edition of the Tradition collection was launched in March 2012. Inspired by a historic 1923 cushion-shaped pocket watch, the Audemars Piguet Queen Elizabeth II Cup 2012 wristwatch carries the distinctive cushion-shaped case. The 18-carat pink gold case together with the white lacquered dial and pink gold applied Arabic numerals and hands, give an elegant and clean look to the dial.
In honour of the sponsorship of the QEII Cup, Audemars Piguet hosted a gala party in partnership with the Hong Kong Jockey Club on Friday, April 27, 2012 which was then followed by the much awaited for, QEII Cup race that took place on Sunday, April 29, 2012 at the Shatin Racecourse.
Audemars Piguet’s Chief Sales Officer, Mr. Wolfgang Sickenberg and Chief Marketing Officer, Mr. Tim Sayler, joined the guests for the opening ceremony that not only kicked off the party, but marked the celebrations which would culminate in the Audemars Piguet QEII Cup on 29th April. Tim Sayler also announced that the partnership between Audemars Piguet and the HK Jockey Club was extended for another three years.
Audemars Piguet’s partnership with the Hong Kong Jockey Club for the sponsorship of the AP QEII Cup race started in 1999. Founded on the same values of exclusivity, passion and respect the QE II Cup is the highlight of the year for the equestrian circle, with its long standing history and at the same time constantly attracting the best jockeys, horses and trainers.
