Catalogue Note

In 2003, Audemars Piguet launched a special edition of the Offshore chronograph with actor Arnold Schwarzenegger's signature engraved on the outside of the back. Made in only 400 examples, these models are very rare and have become especially collectible and desirable in the market.
