Formula 1 driver Lando Norris has been spotted wearing a 50th anniversary Audemars Piguet watch

Lando Norris is one of Formula One’s most promising young drivers… But it’s the high-end timepieces he wears when he’s not working that have us excited recently. Since his F1 debut in 2019, the 22-year-old British driver, who races for McLaren alongside Daniel Ricciardo, has established himself as one of the brightest stars in international motorsports. Halfway through the F1 season, which has been paused for a summer break, Norris is seventh in the standings – an impressive feat given the lackluster performance of McLaren’s car this year.
McLaren is currently in a difficult situation, with the drama surrounding Oscar Piastri and Daniel Ricciardo consuming the beleaguered team. Lando, for his part, is staying out of it, announcing his vacation with a fake out-of-office autoreply on Instagram.
“Many thanks for your. I will be out of the office until [next week] for [holiday] and will not have access to. Please contact [@mclaren] if your request is urgent. Otherwise, I’ll get back to you as soon as I can when I return…” It’s fantastic.

He also appears to have purchased a nice watch to wear while on vacation. Audemars Piguet @landonorris Recent photos of Norris show him wearing a brand-new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Chronograph “50th Anniversary” (ref. 26240ST.OO.1320ST.01), which costs AU$45,420.
This model, as the name suggests, commemorates the 50th anniversary of this popular luxury sports watch, and as such features a unique 50th anniversary automatic rotor design, which AP will discontinue next year. It also has a one-of-a-kind blue dial for its “Grande Tapisserie” collection called Bleu Nuit, Nuage 50.

Norris hasn’t been seen wearing just one flashy watch lately.
