It was the design that made Gerald Genta's career and remains, without question, the most celebrated collection in Audemars Piguet's near 145-year long history.
In 1993, the Royal Oak line expanded to include the Offshore Chronograph, which drove the bulk of sales for AP in the past few decades. Debatably, the Offshore is responsible for carrying AP into the 21st century and ushering it into the powerhouse position in which it exists today.
Housed in a substantial 42mm stainless steel case with a black macro-tappisserie dial, this particular Offshore ref. H50979 is an immediate attention-grabber: Oversized luminous Arabic indices combined with a matching handset, a tri-register chronograph layout and white printing all come together to give a look at once tactical and fashionable. Complementing the industrial vibe is the signature octagonal Royal Oak screwed bezel, plus an inner tachymeter scale and matching black crown and pushers.
A sapphire crystal and integrated leather strap with hidden, signed deployant clasp complete the picture of one of the coolest timepieces AP has ever released — and this is to say nothing of the in-house automatic Calibre 3126/3840 ticking away within, providing 50 hours of power reserve.
In excellent condition throughout, this is a tremendous opportunity to pick up one of the most loved Royal Oaks to date!
