DON RAMON event on the 20th of May...

As we are getting closer to the 20th, the official presentation of the "Don Ramon de la Cruz", there are several details that are unknown to most.

Those lucky enough to be "Don Ramon" owners will only need to show up at the airport on the day of the presentation to pickup their watch. This means that everything from thereon is organized by AP. Don Ramon owners will be invited to the limousine service, hotel, lunch, entertainment and dinner. The first wave of Don Ramon watches will all be delivered on the day of the presentation. NOT A SINGLE DON RAMON WILL BE DELIVERED BEFORE THIS DATE. There might be pieces still available because many have chosen special numbers. Many of the requested numbers might be delivered later. Those that chose a special number for their Don Ramon and will be delivered after the 20th are still invited to the presentation and following events. The schedule for the Don Ramon presentation is as follows;

2oth of May Pickup at the Madrid Airport and drop-off at the Villa Magna Hotel (***** GL)

14:00 - 20:30 Delivery of the Don Ramon watches to their owners
14:30 - 16:00 Presentation cocktail of the Don Ramon at the AP Boutique Madrid
16:00 - 17:30 Return to the Hotel to rest or go shopping
17:30 - 18:00 Meeting at the AP Boutique and brief presentation to "Bullfights"
18:00 - 18:30 Transfer from the AP Boutique to the Bullfighting arena "Las Ventas"
19:00 - 21:30 Bullfight (optional)
21:30 - 22:00 Transfer from the Bullfighting arena to the Hotel
22:00 - 01:00 Don Ramon dinner for owners and spouses/partners at the Hotel restaurant "Eneko" (one Michelin star)
01:00 After dinner drinks at the Hotel Bar...

It is impressive that AP would take care of their customers from arrival until departure of their customers. Spouses and partners are also invited even if they have not purchased the "Don Ramon Lady" model. The Bullfight might not be very politically correct yet I recommend that you go and see this if you have not. The Madrid arena of "Las Ventas" is considered the Mecca of bullfighting. This does not mean that the bullfight is going to be memorable, you never know...

There are 100 Offshores Gent and 50 Offshores Lady. Both are numbered and have a price of 36,000 Euros. The Gent and Lady Don Ramon will come with a rubber and hornback strap. Before delivery the owner can decide on the size of strap and if they choose their initials "hot-stamped" on the back of the crocodile hornback strap (pretty cool). The options are; small, medium or large. There are no discounts and they do not ship any watches overseas.

If anybody is interested you can contact the Madrid Boutique at +34 91-781-8060. All employees at the Madrid Boutique speak fluent english. Their opening hours are 10:00 to 14:30 and 17:00 to 20:30, Madrid/Paris time.

Audemars Piguet...

P.s. I should charge BIG bucks for this...
