For New Yorkers, Montauk Highway represents the impersonal way out of the asphalt and the rigors of daily routine, a ticket to an oasis where water moves sluggishly on the docks and boats dot the horizon. In this atmosphere, time stretches and contracts to house mile.

A road may seem an unlikely source of inspiration for a luxury sports watch, but when it is as famous as the Montauk ... a picturesque strip of asphalt 100 miles starting in New York, traces a path through eastern Long Island and empties into the sun, surf and style of the Hamptons, it's much easier to do. At least that seems to be the thought of Audemars Piguet, to launch this year.

This special edition model has style and good taste to the collector. The bright blue and bright emerald on the tachymeter scale and Arabic numerals for the hours is amazing, without being shrill, and the rich tones of chocolate in the sub-areas of the lap counters, create a nice contrast against the pure white dial and revel in the details.

Then, of course, not surprising that the brown alligator strap with stitching Hornback emerald blue, almost as luxurious as the polished steel case, warm glow and superbly finished.

I have a question, I own one of these and the only issue I am having is the band is really tight and small on me. Where can I get a larger one that would still have the same colors in it
