Catalogue Note

Accompanied by an Audemars Piguet certificate of authenticity, instruction manual and presentation case.  Introduced in the beginning of 2000, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore model propelled the legendary all-purpose sports watch into a new arena thanks to research into the use of new technologies and materials such as titanium and ceramic.  

The Royal Oak Offshore Rubens Barichello Chronograph’s construction takes its inspiration from racing cars, hence the construction of the case with its added elements in titanium and ceramic to the chronograph pushers and layers to the bezel.

The strong and bold aesthetic with clear edges and geometric shapes combined with the use of these futuristic materials together make for a characterful and avant-garde watch.
