Audemars Piguet News

Monday 11 July, 2011 - 15:00 PM EDT


Audemars Piguet golf ambassador, Rory McIlroy won the U.S. Open on Sunday, June 19th with the lowest score in the tournament’s 111-year history, taking the title by eight strokes to become the youngest winner, at 22 years old, of the golf season’s second major championship in 88 years.

McIlroy led from the start at the Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland, USA. He shot a 6-under par 65 for a three-shot advantage in the first round, followed with rounds of 66 and 68, before shooting a 2- under-par 69 in Sunday’s final round, to finish 16-under par, the tournament’s lowest winning score in relation to par. His 8-shots margin of victory was the fourth-largest at the U.S. Open.

“The whole week has been incredible,” McIlroy said at the trophy presentation. “I couldn’t wish for much more. I’m so happy to be holding this trophy.”

McIlroy is the youngest U.S. Open champion since Bobby Jones in 1923 and his victory comes two months after he blew a four-stroke lead in the final round of the Masters Tournament. “Augusta was a very valuable experience for me,” said McIlroy, the youngest major winner since Woods at the 1997 Masters. “I learned a few things about myself and my game.” McIlroy previously had three third-place finishes in major championships, at the 2009 and 2010 PGA Championships and the 2010 British Open.

This victory represents a substantial step for a player considered by many in the game to be at the forefront of the next generation of stars. The common assumption is that this major title is the first of many for Rory McIlroy, who climbs in the Official World Rankings to World Number 4.

Amongst the other Audemars Piguet ambassadors, Lee Westwood of England, tied for 3rd place at 6- under on Sunday, and last year’s winner Graeme McDowell, McIlroy’s compatriot from Northern Ireland, tied for 14th place. The last time two non-Americans from the same country captured the U.S. Open in consecutive years was in 1920-21.

Audemars Piguet

Audemars Piguet ambassador Leo Messi expressed the full force of his formidable talent in the Champions League final on Saturday May 28th 2011. The UEFA quite logically named him Man of the Match, given the spectacular display provided by the Argentinean champion who shone like a supernova among the 22 stars that sparkled on London’s Wembley pitch.

Despite a steady run of successes, Leo Messi admitted after the Champions League final against Manchester United (3-1) to being truly impressed by what his FC Barcelona team has achieved, exclaiming that: “this is a match that will be long remembered! This team is doing some extraordinary things and we haven’t yet fully grasped what we have accomplished. We want to continue winning titles”.

Having scored the second goal for FC Barcelona and set up the third, the man who has notched up 53 goals for his club during this season in various competitions definitely gave a performance worthy of the event – exactly as one would expect from a sports icon. He tortured the Manchester United defence with his technical mastery and breathtaking moves. In scoring his 12th Champions League goal for the 2010/2011 season, he equalled the record held since 2003 by Ruud Van Nistelroy.

At just 23 years old, the two-time Golden Ball winner continues to earn titles and individual distinctions with disarming ease and shows no signs of resting on his laurels. He is now aiming for victory with Argentina’s national team in the Copa America which is being held in his homeland.

Brand Ambassador Leo Messi is a particularly keen devotee of haute horlogerie and proudly wears Royal Oak and Royal Oak Offshore watches. These collections embody a perfect combination of elegance, excellence and strength, qualities that Audemars Piguet particularly appreciates in its sports ambassadors.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Volcano Watch on Mr. LeBron's wrist

Another great Ambassador!

LeBron Raymone James is an American professional basketball player for the Miami Heat of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Nicknamed "King James", he was a three-time "Mr. Basketball" of Ohio in high school, and was highly promoted in the national media as a future NBA superstar while a sophomore at St. Vincent – St. Mary High School. At just 18, he was selected with the number one pick in the 2003 NBA Draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers and signed a shoe contract with Nike before his professional debut. Listed as a small forward, James has set numerous youngest player records since joining the league. He was named the NBA Rookie of the Year in 2003–04, NBA Most Valuable Player in 2008–09 and 2009–10, and has been both All-NBA selection and an All-Star every season since 2005. In 2010, a much-publicized free agency process ended with James going to the Miami Heat. He became the third reigning NBA MVP to change teams and the first since Moses Malone in 1982.

The focal point of the Cleveland offense, James led the team to consecutive playoff appearances from 2006 through 2010. In 2007, the Cavaliers advanced to the Conference Finals for the first time since 1992 and to the NBA Finals for the first time in franchise history. James has been a member of the USA national team, winning a bronze medal at the 2004 Olympics and gold at the 2008 Olympics.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Auctions Off His Royal Oak Offshore Legacy Watch

Audemars Piguet

On June 17, at an impressive gala at the Mandarin Oriental in New York City, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger leaded an Audemars Piguet watch charity auction sometime last June this year. The event raised $500,000 for the After-School All-Stars (ASAS).

Founded by California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, ASAS is dedicated to providing comprehensive after-school programs to nearly 80,000 impoverished children nationwide.

Audemars Piguet auctioned off several prestigious watches to raise money for the charity, including the limited-edition Royal Oak Offshore Legacy Watch that was co-designed by Schwarzenegger himself. The auction also featured two Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshores chronographs, one of which was taken directly off of Schwarzenegger’s wrist. The auction itself resulted in more than $500,000, and the event in entirety raised $1.2 million for After-School All-Stars. Audemars Piguet’s outstanding 10-year commitment to the organization has overall raised more than $8 million through the sale of limited-edition timepieces and special events.

Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger was born July 30, 1947. He is an Austrian-American bodybuilder, actor, model, businessman, politician, and the 38th Governor of California.

Schwarzenegger began weight training at 15. He was then awarded with the title of Mr. Universe at age 20 and went on to win the Mr. Olympia contest a total of seven times. Schwarzenegger has remained a prominent presence in the sport of bodybuilding and has written several books and numerous articles on the sport.

Schwarzenegger gained worldwide fame as a Hollywood action film icon, noted for his lead roles in such films as Conan the Barbarian, The Terminator, and Commando.

As a Republican, he was first elected on October 7, 2003, in a special recall election to replace then-Governor Gray Davis. Schwarzenegger was sworn in on November 17, 2003, to serve the remainder of Davis's term. Schwarzenegger was then re-elected on November 7, 2006, in California's 2006 gubernatorial election, to serve a full term as governor, defeating Democrat Phil Angelides, who was California State Treasurer at the time. Schwarzenegger was sworn in for his second term on January 5, 2007.
