Even though I am Indian and don’t follow the sport cricket, I definitely know who Sachin Tendulkar is. He is arguably the greatest player to play the sport. This year marks two very important and amazing accomplsihments for the famed cricketer, the first being his retirement from the sport after 25 years of commitment, passion and excellence and the second being, he is the only cricket player in history to have played 200 test matches.
His other accomplishments include, being the first batsman in history to score 100 centuries in international cricket; the player with the most number of centuries made in test matches (51) and One Day Internationals (49) as well as the highest run scorer in World Cups. Nevertheless, Sachin only reached the epitome of his career fulfilling a dream he had been nourishing since childhood in 2011 when he was part of the World Cup winning Indian team on his home soil. Apart from a very successful career, Sachin is also known for his humility as a person, his deep love for his motherland India as well as his philanthropic work.
He has been an ambassador for luxury watch brand Audemars Piguet since 2005. He is the symbol of Audemars Piguet’s philosophy, “To break the rules, you must first master them”. To celebrate his passion for cricket and watchmaking Audemars Piguet have released two limited editions, a Royal Oak and a Royal Oak Offshore Sachin Tendulkar in a series of 150 and 300 pieces.
