Now this is a nice little story that will warm that hearts of all watch lovers. For years Audemars Piguet (among other high-end watch brands) have been featured in the HBO series Entourage. Co-star Jeremy Piven's character Ari Gold wore at least a few Audemars Piguet watches.
Most recently we was wearing a solid 18k rose gold Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph (ref. 25960OR.OO.1185OR.01). I believe this is the piece shown in the article. I actually haven't been able to catch all of Entourage's final season 8 get get the full story on Gold getting the watch. OK, that is all nice and good, but such Hollywood watch placements are common. The fun news is that the show's creator Doug Ellin gifted Piven the watch to keep as a token of his gratitude for Piven's role in the series.
It just goes to show how a watch still makes an excellent and sentimental gift. The rose gold Royal Oak Chronograph retails for about $50,000 I believe. Enjoy the last season of the show and look out for nice watches on the large (or little) screen.
