Sébastien Buemi explained the design of this watch: ‘Since 2010, I have been continuously exchanging views and opinions with Audemars Piguet watchmakers and engineers regarding the shape, color and material of this watch, Nothing. It takes a lot of time, but I’m proud of the results. Yellow is the main color of my racing helmet, so it is important to use this color on the dial. In addition, I am only 23 years old and very young, so I want to design a watch with my own style, and find the right position between the precision motorsports production technology embodied in the watch and my simple personality. Therefore, I want to use materials commonly used in motorsport, such as precision ceramics and Titanium. I really like the look of this watch: it’s smart and stylish, it fits my personality. I think it suits me! ‘
