Originally launched in 1993 under the reference 25721ST, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore is one of the most impressive models ever created by the Le Brassus based Manufacture.
On the twentieths anniversary of the model, Audemars Piguet revealed a superb new limited edition in collaboration with the superstar NBA player. Lebron wanted a timepiece realized in a both unusual and stylish colour scheme, so that he could wear it either with a tuxedo or with a casual outfit.
The light grey grande tapisserie dial is perfectly complemented by the titanium bezel and grey strap, going harmoniously with the pink gold case. The watch is further enhanced by the diamond-set black ceramic chronograph pusher at 2 o'clock.
The watch is powered by the robust yet intricate calibre 3126/3840 visible through the sapphire display back which bears the signature of the athlete.
Available as a limited edition of 600 pieces, the model is one of the most attractive and sought after version of the celebrated Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offsore.
