  • Catalogue Essay

    Being the official timepiece sponsor for the Swiss Alinghi sailing team, Audemars Piguet has created a series of limited edition timepieces to celebrate the achievements of the iconic red and black team.
    Launched in 2005, the present Royal Oak Offshore regatta flyback chronograph in stainless steel was made as a limited edition of 2,000 pieces. Inspired by the team’s exceptional performance and being the winners of the America’s Cup in 2003, the dial represents the colours of the winning team in red and black with the team’s logo featured on the sub-dial on the right.
    Preserved in excellent overall condition complete with its full set of accessories, this present example from circa 2006 is a wonderful sports wristwatch to wear on a nice day out on the boat.

  • Artist Biography

    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.
