  • Catalogue Essay

    In 1998, Audemars Piguet released a series of Royal Oak Offshore chronographs made in titanium which was released after the scarcely produced platinum Offshore. With a contrast, the Titanium Offshore was one of the lightest examples of the model produced with two dial variants, ashen gray and a white dial with blue registers. The reference was discontinued in 2003.

    The present Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore ref. 25721TI.OO.1000TI.01 “Titanium Beast” with an “E” serial from 2003, is one of the last examples of the reference before its discontinuation. Offered in excellent overall condition, the watch is also delivered with its original warranty and accessories. While early Audemars Piguet Royal Oak timepieces are growing in demand, this is perhaps a perfect opportunity to secure an early example of this beloved reference.

  • 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.
