  • Catalogue Essay

    In 2002, Audemars Piguet collaborated with Ernesto Bertarelli, a Swiss billionaire businessman and philanthropist, to support Alinghi – a competitive sailing team from Switzerland. At the end of the Louis Vuitton Cup regattas, the Alinghi sailboat, skippered by Russell Coutts, won the Louis Vuitton Cup Finals by defeating the American challenger on March 2, 2003. Since then, Audemars Piguet has renewed its sponsorship of the Alinghi team.

    The present watch is numbered 64 of a limited edition of 107 examples produced to commemorate Alinghi’s endeavor. The Royal Oak Offshore Alinghi Team Chronograph is limited to 2,007 examples, of which 1,300 entirely in forged carbon, 600 in pink gold with forged carbon bezel and 107 examples in platinum with forged carbon bezel. The mint engraving on the case back illustrates the Alinghi yachtsmen on an exciting sailing expedition, in addition to the crisp name of the model. The present example is a timepiece of pure, unadulterated energy. This watch is, by all means, a victorious trophy to crown any collection.

    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.
