This Royal Oak was owned by famous designer Karl Lagerfeld since 1973.
The black PVD coating was done outside of Audemars Piguet, most likely on request of KL when he lived in Italy.
The watch was sold by auction house Phillips in the 50years celebration auction for the Royal Oak for CHF 937,500 and is now owned by the Audemars Piguet museum.
The artwork is a special collaboration and only 15 artprints are made. Signed and numbered by the artist.
Artprint created from original mixed media. Ink and watercolor on photocollage.
