  • Catalogue Essay

    In 1992, 20 years after the original Royal Oak was launched, Audemars Piguet presented the Offshore, a Royal Oak on testosterone designed by Emmanuel Gueit and aimed to a younger clientele.

    The new Offshore featured a chronograph and calendar mechanism, along with a prominent rubber gasket sandwiched between the bezel and case, and therban – a type of rubber - coated chronograph pushers and screw down crown. These elements enhanced the nautical theme of the Royal Oak model and over the ensuing years it has often been associated with sailing events.

    The present watch is a very rare and extremely impressive iteration of that famed design. Featuring a prestigious perpetual calendar and moon phase indication in addition to a chronograph function, this version of reference 25854 hardly ever seen pink gold - a true statement of lavishness in itself.

    Made in 1997, it furthermore represents the first series of the model, distinguished by a different dial design featuring double metal rimming to the subsidiary counters and different graphics (most notably, first series examples feature a radial disposition of the day of the month in the subdial at 12 o’ clock).

    This impressive and luxurious Offshore is not only in superb condition but also comes with its winding box, guarantee and Extract from the Archives.
