  • Catalogue Essay

    The Royal Oak from the original slim version of 1972 to more modern reiterations has always been a creative playground for Audemars Piguet who in 1992 for the twentieth anniversary of its iconic model presented a version on testosterone: thicker, larger and bolder than its older sibling, the Royal Oak Offshore was destined to fail (like the original Royal Oak) but instead it became a brand staple and launched the trend of larger sized rugged watches.

    Contrary to earlier models featuring rubber clad chronograph pushers and crown the present example features these elements in ceramic for greater durability furthermore giving the watch a more cutting edge hi-tech look.


    In excellent overall condition and presented with the full set of accessories, it is certainly a perfect wristwatch for the weekend cruise.

    Audemars Piguet

    Swiss • 1881

    A specialist in the manufacture of complications since it was established in 1881, Audemars Piguet never ceases to impress with a rich history of creating bold, even audacious, timepieces underpinned by traditional watchmaking at its finest. This Le Brassus-based Swiss manufacturer is one of only two major manufacturers still owned by the founding family. Since its earliest days, AP is considered a leader in the field of minute repeaters and grande complication pocket and wristwatches. The brand is devoted to preserving the history of watchmaking in the Vallée de Joux, showcased at their superb museum in Le Brassus.

    Today, the brand is best known for its Royal Oak models, a revolutionary luxury sports watch launched in 1972. Other key models include early minute repeating wristwatches, vintage chronograph wristwatches, such as the oversized reference 5020, perpetual calendar watches and the Royal Oak Offshore, first introduced in 1993.
