Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn, is seen in the August 11, 2014 issue of Fortune magazine wearing an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak.   It appears to be the Audemars Piguet Ref 15300 Ref 15450ST.OO.1256ST.01 in stainless steel.   How do you like the watch Jeff?

The entire article is available here: “Lessons from Jeff Weiner, LinkedIn’s Networker-in-Chief” by Adam Lashinsky, July 24, 2014, Fortune.

Jeff Weiner looks right at home with an AP RO on his wrist, much like Nest Labs Founder & CEO Tony Fadell, who I also spotted wearing a Ressence Type 3 (check my article on Fadell’s Ressence here).  Interestingly, in both instances it was in a Fortune magazine article authored by Adam Lashinsky (who you can catch on Twitter @AdamLashinsky).  Fun times!

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Tourbillon Chronograph

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Tourbillon Chronograph forged carbon

1972, the Royal Oak (RO) is introduced.  1993, the Royal Oak Offshore (ROO) is born, followed by its many variants and limited editions which eventually gained a bit of a cult following with AP fans.  2010, an even more dramatic interpretation of the ROO appeared in the form of the first Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph, featuring a hand-wound movement and a case incorporating forged carbon and ceramic.  Today, the latest AP ROO Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph is back in forged carbon with the automatic mechanical AP caliber 2897 (the current AP Tourbillon Chronograph offerings are manual wind). The inner tachy scale is a sapphire ring is new, as is the open movement architecture at 1 o’clock, exposed through the “Méga Tapisserie” dial; the chrono subs at 3 and 9 do look a bit small, or is it just me.

Official unveiling at Watches & Wonders 2014 next month (sept/oct) in Hong Kong.

Finishing out the men’s 2014 highlights for Audemars Piguet is a magnificent piece which you may recall was first issued in platinum (40 pieces limited) in 2012 for the 40th Anniversary of the Royal Oak.  Now here is the Royal Oak Openworked Extra-Thin in Rose Gold (39mm x 8.04mm).  Inside is the beautiful automatic mechanical AP Calibre 5122.  A superb watch.
