    In 2010, Audemars Piguet appointed Michael Schumacher as its brand ambassador. Two years later, the company released the Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph in collaboration with and in honor of the racing legend.

    The present model truly reflects Michael Schumacher’s passion and tastes – the tachymeter scale displays seven stars that represent Schumacher’s seven Formula 1 world champion titles. The blue stars represent the years he drove for Benetton and the red stars for Ferrari. The outer minute track also alludes to the checkered racing flag.

    The present titanium watch was released in 1000 examples with the iconic Audemars Piguet Cermet bezel. It contains the AP Calibre 3126/3840.

    The present watch is in like new condition.
