While going through our current inventory, I asked Roman and Lindsay to round up the best Audemars Piguet watches we have to offer. What they dug up were eight impressive Royal Oaks made with a variety of precious metals and high-end materials. Models include limited edition Offshores and tourbillon chronographs. Lindsay then included two luxurious high jewelry timepieces for the ladies. And with all these pieces currently in-stock, we’ve given them special prices while they last!
Royal Oak Offshore Michael Schumacher
Lets start off with the newest and hottest Audemars we got in store, the Michael Schumacher Royal Oak Offshore limited edition. This big, brash racing chrono was designed with the F1 living legend. It uses the bigger 44mm ROO case with a specialized rubber strap. It features a black anthracite galvanic dial with their Mega Tapisserie pattern and a Cermet bezel (Cermet is a ultra-resilient metal powder-infused ceramic).Note the rectangle chrono pushers, which have been enlarged to use while wearing racing gloves. There are three versions, with this being the pink gold model. This watch and the titanium and platinum models are covered in detail in our Michael Schumacher post.
Royal Oak Offshore Montoya
The Royal Oak Offshore Montoya is also a limited edition racing chrono, this one made for F1 star Juan Pablo Montoya. The 42mm case is made of platinum and features a carbon fiber bezel. This is paired with a sticking blue dial and matching leather strap, making it stand out in the world of royal oaks.
Royal Oak Tourbillon Chronographs
Here we have a stainless steel case and pink gold case for the Royal Oak Tourbillon Chrono. both satin-polished cases measure 44mm with blacked out dials and matching leather straps. One the dials, you’ll see a 1-minute tourbillon and chrono subdials.
Royal Oak Offshore Team Alinghi
This Team Alinghi limited edition was made to celebrate the famous sailing team defending their 32nd America’s Cup. What made this watch famous in the world of horology was being the first fully forged case. The dial on the 44mm case shows two chrono subdials, the Alinghi team logo and a unique date aperture display. It’s fitted with a black rubber strap.
Royal Oak Offshore Rubens Barrichello II
We have another pair of F1 racing limited editions, with these dedicated to Rubens Barrichello. The platinum version features a more traditional ROO chrono dial design, blue and white color detailing and features a blue crocodile strap and a ceramic bezel, crown and push buttons. The titanium version goes with a flashier chrono dial design, inspired by a F1 car dashboard. It features a black rubber bezel and strap. Both cases measure 44mm.
Royal Oak Offshore End of Days
Our last Offshore model is the End of Days limited edition. This timepiece is one of several limited editions that Audemars Piguet has made for Arnold Schwarzenegger, who one of their biggest and most famous fans. Dedicated to the film of the same name that was released in 1999. What sets this blacked-out Offshore apart was the fact it AP’s first PVD-treated watch. The ultra-resilient black coating covers the 44mm stainless steel case, with a black with chrono subdials, date display and neon hands and numbers. It’s fitted with a black kevlar strap with velcro clasp.
No onto a pair of ladies watches, with this Millenary Precieuse up first. This high jewelry piece features an 32mm case with an intricate design.

Blued hands are used for contrast.

Also a high jewelry piece, the Givrine watch is inspired by the beautiful snowy winters of the Swiss and French alps and named after the Col de la Givrine mountain pass in the Jura Mountains. The case measures 44mm by 35mm and is made of 18-karat white gold and a total of 3.89 carats of diamonds.
