  • Catalogue Essay

    Audemars Piguet launched their sporty chronograph line, the Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph in 1993 with rubber clad chronograph buttons, however it was not until 1998 that they returned to the more traditional line of Royal Oak, with the release of the Royal Oak Chronograph, similar to the present watch. The case is 41mm, compared to the earlier 39mm and is in line with the taste for large size cases. The watch is highly finished both on the case and bracelet.

    The Royal Oak Chronograph has a strong appeal, but a dressier attitude compared to sporty Royal Oak Off-shore. It can easily go from the outdoors to the boardroom. The present example is in very nice condition and features a rare cream dial. It is accompanied with the box and papers and is a wonderful example to wear and enjoy.
