  • Catalogue Essay

    This celebratory version of the Royal Oak Offshore Triple Calendar pays homage to the return of Hong Kong to the People Republic of China with more than only the engraving on the back: the day and month windows are in Mandarin, and the edition is limited to 97 pieces, a subtle reminder of the year of the return: 1997.

    Amazingly, the watch has survived its twenty years of existence without a scratch, and arrives to us in absolutely excellent, new-old-stock condition, complete of its original documents. An unmissable occasion for the collector of unusual and limited edition timepieces.

  • 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.
