In celebration of their Doha Boutique opening, Swiss luxury watchmaker Audemars Piguet unveils a very special version of its Royal Oak Offshore sports watch in the form of a limited edition model specifically designed to honour Qatar and only available at Audemars Piguet Doha Boutique.
The typically rugged, 42mm case of the Royal Oak Offshore is made from titanium, has a scratchproof, black ceramic bezel and houses the Audemars Piguet manufactured Calibre 3126/3840 selfwinding chronograph movement.
Beyond that, this particular version of the Royal Oak Offshore becomes even more special than most. Because each of the 100 examples of this limited edition features a satin-brushed, slate grey dial with contrasting anthracite counters for recording elapsed times of 60 seconds, 30 minutes and 12 hours. The luminescent Arabic numerals and main hour and minute hands are satin-brushed, and two of the chronograph indicators and the central seconds hand are lacquered in a vibrant red.
Another small, red detail found at the five o’clock position on the tachymeter scale further identifies this particular version of the Royal Oak Offshore.
Turning the watch over, meanwhile, reveals Audemars Piguet’s characteristic winding rotor through a sapphire crystal display back surrounded by a titanium border.
Each watch will be delivered on a grey alligator strap designed to complement its unique dial design and will be supplied in a special presentation box.
