This ROYAL OAK OFFSHORE timepiece from AUDEMARS PIGUET is named after one of the most successful and famous Colombian racing drivers, Juan Pablo Montoya. Launched in 2004, in collaboration with world renowned watchmaker Richard Mille, this limited edition timepiece draws its inspiration from aesthetics and technical features of racing cars.
Case of this exceptional rose gold Royal Oak Offshore (Ref. 26030RO.OO.D001IN.01) timepiece is highlighted with stunning combination of rose gold and carbon. Inspired from the technical features of racing cars, the screws of raised octagonal bezel in rose gold with carbon inserts look like cylinder head screws; the crown is reminiscent of a wheel axle, and the push-buttons resemble cooling flaps.
The Royal Oak Offshore Juan Pablo Montoya is equipped with a 54 jewels Cal.2226/2840 automatic nickel lever movement with an openwork oscillating weight in the form of a brake disc, which is visible through the sapphire case back.
The stunning black dial adorned with clous de Paris decoration features luminescent indexes in pink gold and luminous pink gold baton hands, outer ring for tachymeter, three sub dials: small seconds at 12’o clock, 30-minute and 12-hour chronograph counters (9’o clock & 6’o clock respectively), and a date window at 3’o clock.
The screw down case back is secured with eight hexagonal screws and has inscription ‘ROYAL OAK OFFSHORE JUAN PABLO MONTOYA LIMITED EDITION’. The Pink gold version of the Royal Oak Offshore Juan Pablo Montoya is worn with a leather strap featuring an Audemars Piguet 18 carat pink gold deployant clasp.
The limited edition Royal Oak Offshore Juan Pablo Montoya is available in Titanium (1000 pieces), Rose gold (500 pieces) and Platinum (100 pieces) versions.
