    The Royal Oak Offshore introduced in 1993 is one of today’s most sought-after luxury sports timepieces by collectors. Since its introduction, the model has evolved into numerous configurations in color and design, as well as limited rare examples that highlights its collectability. The present example is one of such, a rare variant of the Royal Oak Offshore exclusively made for Oceanografia S.A. de C.V, commissioned by fellow collector Amado Omar Yañez Osuna, CEO of offshore oil drilling company in Mexico, to celebrate the firm’s 40th anniversary of its establishment.

    This robust series sports a beautiful deep blue “Mega Tapisserie” dial that perfectly denotes the Oceanografia brand mark, contrasting with the neon yellow chronograph hand and the oversized Arabic numerals. The hour and minute hands are filled with blue luminous material, whilst the hour makers with flashy neon yellow. Under the dark, this combination on the dial lights up with stunning contrast and flamboyance. The case back is furthermore specially engraved with the firms’ 40th anniversary sea horse mark. Adding to its attraction, the present example is part of a limited series of 47 pieces and is offered in great condition that will please every watch lover.
