Catalogue Note

With an Audemars Piguet set of three DVDs.

Produced in a limited series of 1000 pieces the T3 model was designed in collaboration with the Hollywood actor and former Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Created especially for him to wear in the 2003 movie ‘Terminator 3’ the watch is completely cased in titanium providing a surprisingly light weight that belays its 48mm diameter. The T3 was the second model created with Arnold for use in a movie after his 1999 ‘End of Days’ film and subsequent cult limited edition Audemars Piguet wristwatch. The T3 was the last movie collaboration Arnold and Audemars Piguet embarked on.
