Notes

Beginning in 2005, the partnership between Sachin Tendulkar and Audemars Piguet pays tribute to the Indian cricket legend's brilliant sporting career by o"ering two limited editions of the Royal Oak and Royal Oak O"shore Sachin Tendulkar models, with 150 and 300 pieces respectively. After 25 successful years, Sachin tendulakar has decided to retire after setting a new record by becoming the only cricketer to take part in 200 test matches. Nicknamed "The Master Blaster", Sachin Tendulkar has had an incredible sporting career, marked by a commitment and dedication that has enabled him to collect a remarkable number of successes, including multiple records. He was the first batsman in history to score 100 "centuries" in international cricket. He scored the most centuries in Test Cricket (51) and One Day International (49), and the most World Cup races. However, Sachin only reached the pinnacle of his career by fulfilling a childhood dream when, in 2011, he won the World Cup with the Indian team in his own country.
