  • Catalogue Essay

    Bold, blatant and blazingly beguiling, the present Royal Oak Offshore, fitted with a flashy yellow Mega-Tapisserie patterned dial, is as refreshing as a summertime retreat. Housed in a beautifully crafted 42-mm. stainless steel case with sapphire crystal transparent caseback, the timepiece contains a self-winding caliber 3124/3841 with an impressive power reserve of 50 hours. Comprised of 364 parts, the caliber, as seen through the open caseback, is meticulously engineered with precision.

    Featuring black ceramic pushpieces and screw-locked crowns, the watch is water-resistant to 300 meters. The dial looks remarkably distinctive featuring large hands with SuperLuminova coatings and raised accents in the form of square patterns. The hour markers are intact and easily legible – a critical characteristic for a diver’s chronograph. The inner rotating bezel looks exceptionally striking with 8 screws that seem to heighten the watch’s robust presence. The present watch is a daring timepiece created for daring collectors.

    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.
