Feature: 5 Celebrities Who Love Their Audemars Piguet Watch
Audemars Piguet is one of the most prestigious watchmakers in the world, producing some ground-breaking watches such as the Royal Oak, designed by the legendary Gerald Genta. It’s no wonder, then, that there is a list of celebrities from the world of sport and entertainment that love their AP timepieces, but who are they?
A woman who certainly doesn’t require any introduction, Serena Williams has been seen on and off the tennis court with her Audemars Piguet on her wrist. The tennis champion has enjoyed a lengthy friendship with the brand and her model of choice flits between classic variations of the Royal Oak Offshore and glitzy versions of the Millenary—one featuring a black mother of pearl dial.
Going professional only four years ago, this young Spaniard is blitzing golf courses around the world, and quickly making his way to the top. In 2019 he impressed golf fans by winning the Alps Tour Order of Merit, finishing second on the European Challenge Tour Rankings, as well as having three runner-up finishes on the European Tour—all while being in his rookie year.
The singer and super-performer Janelle Monae has a enjoyed a relationship with AP for a few years now. She also performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival, in which Audemars Piguet are proud sponsors. Her watch of choice appears to be the classic Royal Oak in a stunning gold tone—she is known for her oh-so-cool style after all.
One of the best-known golfers in the world, Darren Clarke is one of many players who rock an AP, both on and off the course. A professional since 1990, the Northern Irishman has been wooing fans for just over thirty years now and doesn’t look set on stopping anytime soon. Clarke was also a guinea pig for AP’s golf watch, which took the classic Royal Oak and added a rubber strap—something usually only seen on the Royal Oak Offshore.
The legendary music producer has a longstanding relationship with Audemars Piguet, even releasing a limited-edition piece with the watchmaker. In 2009, AP presented the producer with the Millenary Quincy Jones Limited Edition, a watch that celebrated their collaboration on Quincy’s Project Q, which raised awareness on young people’s need for self-expression.
