2018 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph

The highly respected Swiss manufacturer of mechanical watches Audemars Piguet first introduced their chunky Royal Oak model back in 1993. Now to celebrate the 25th anniversary of this emblematic & trendsetting timepiece, the company has just unveiled a new, limited edition set of four special watches.

Almost identical to the original, the new Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph comes with a 42mm stainless steel case, a “Petite Tapisserie” black dial with dark blue chronograph registers, and matching blue pushers, crown and alligator strap. The second steel watch in the quartet has a brown dial fitted with pink gold hands.

For bling lovers, there’s the 18k yellow gold model that sports a blue dial and golden sub-dials, offered on a matching 18k gold bracelet and a spare alligator strap, with a gold pin buckle, of course.

The most expensive and heavyweight of the line literally is a behemoth all platinum chronograph with grey dial and black sub-dials, matching bracelet and extra alligator strap, limited to 50 pieces and tipping the scales at over a pound 0.5 kg! Now that’s a watch to wear only on special occasions with your arm resting, preferably.
