    Like many timepieces, the Audemars Piguet “End of Days” Royal Oak Offshore is linked to a celebrated icon. The model is named after the 1999 blockbuster thriller “End of Days” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    In the movie, Schwarzenegger is shown wearing this model on his wrist. After the film hit the silver screen in 1999, the “End of Days” collection instantly became the most well-liked watch model. Although it was highly coveted by watch collectors around the world, there was a limited supply of 500. The watch was also the first Royal Oak Offshore to be darkened by a PVD treatment. Housed inside a daringly stylish case, the watch comprises a black guilloché dial with three subsidiary dials. The hands and indexes on the dial are luminescent and match in tone, further highlighting the dashing flair of the watch.

    The present “End of Days” is not only a timekeeping tool, but also a precious memorabilia in the history of Hollywood motion pictures.
