  • Catalogue Essay

    The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore, was the firm’s answer to the every changing taste of the modern collector of fine timepieces. Introduced in 1993, the Offshore features a much larger and thicker case dimension and was first released as a chronograph wristwatch with date, navy blue dial and an integrated bracelet, with a pumped up case dimension measuring 42mm in diameter.

    The “End of Days” edition was launched as a limited edition of 500 pieces in 1999, to commemorate or welcome the new millennium marking the end of the 20th century. With a PVD coated stainless steel case, the watch is further fitted with a black dial matching the case featuring zesty yellow luminous numerals and hands.

    The present example numbered 148 is presented in excellent overall condition with very minimal signs of use and wear.

    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.
