  • Catalogue Essay

    First introduced in 1993, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore is yet another important milestone by the firm. For the first time, it incorporated a chronograph function with date, pumped up 42mm diameter case and the original example released (The Beast) featured a navy blue dial in stainless steel with bracelet. Contemporizing the fathomed Royal Oak, the Offshore iteration was immediately well-received and was an instant success. Since its initial launch, the Offshore has witnessed over hundreds of variations, collaborations and editions.

    The present example belongs to one of the most interesting iterations of the Royal Oak Offshore and is named the Survivor. Introduced in 2008 in the midst of the global financial crisis, the name is certainly ironic and hence controversial due to its peculiar design and purpose. Launched as a limited edition of 1,000 pieces, the Survivor will always be distinct due to its notable oversized chronograph pusher guards. With a design resembling a timepiece that one would imagine on the wrist of “The Rock” or “Arnold Schwarzenegger” in an action packed motion picture, the Survivor is definitely built to survive.

    The present example numbered 655 is accompanied by the original warranty dated 2009 and its original presentation box.
