If you are serious about “dressing for success” you’re going to need to make absolutely sure that you have covered all of your bases and attended to every detail.

After all, any old fool can throw on any off the rack suit and walk into a boardroom hoping (but never really feeling confident enough) to land big business – but serious players understand that walking into any business situation without feeling completely and totally comfortable and confident is a death wish long before they even step into the elevator.

That’s what makes the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concepts Laptimer such an impressive timepiece. Originally produced by this legendary watch manufacturer in 2012, this second iteration that celebrates legendary racecar driver Michael Schumacher is absolutely everything you could have ever hoped for in a timepiece intended for success and then some!

Your watch says everything about you

The beautiful thing about this particular Audemars Piguet timepiece is that the designers and engineers behind this amazing piece of timekeeping technology worked closely with Michael Schumacher to come up with a utilitarian tool that gets the job done while at the same time creating a stunning work of art at the exact same time.

This speaks volumes about the kind of man that wears this timepiece, or the kind of man that wears timepieces like this one.

This watch is intended for a man that knows the value of work, the importance of using the right tool for the right task, and how valuable specialized knowledge and experience is – but the kind of man that also understands how valuable perception and presentation is to sealing the deal.

The pitch perfect relationship between form and function here is no mistake.

Stark, simple, straightforward, focused…

Whenever you look at an Audemars Piguet timepiece you know that you are looking at a representation of the art at its highest possible form, but that you’re also looking at hundreds of years of experience, craftsmanship, and attention to detail.

Watching Michael Schumacher race was very similar, in that you understood and appreciated his respect for the past (and the future) of racing while at the same time embracing that he must have worked his entire lifetime with extreme attention to detail to become anywhere near as successful as he eventually would become.

The kind of man that straps this timepiece on his wrist is the same kind of man.

Stark, simple, straightforward, and focused like a laser beam, this is a man that knows exactly what they want and is willing to do absolutely everything necessary to make it happen. This is a man that shakes the world around him rather than allow the world to shape who he is, what he wants, were how he pursues his dreams.

This is for a man that both honors history and the past while at the same time actively carving out his niche and his space in the timeline, focused on building a better future while at the same time becoming a part of its past.

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Laptimer is something special indeed.
