Luxury timepiece aficionados are always on the lookout for rare and unique timepieces from the best brands on the market. Lucky for watch fanatics, at Luxury Bazaar we regularly have lucrative timepieces that are a collector’s dream. One very special timepiece we have in stock and ready to be shipped is the limited edition “End of Days” from Audemars Piguet.
This limited edition Royal Oak Offshore out of 500 examples is a popular collector’s piece because it was seen on the wrist of Audemars Piguet brand ambassador Arnold Schwarzenegger during his days as an action film star. Schwarzenegger wore this model in the 1999 action horror thriller film End of Days. In the film, Schwarzenegger played retired cop Jericho Cane who takes on the role of “protector” for the film’s “damsel in distress” Christine York, played by Robin Tunney. In the film, York (Tunney) is in danger because at birth she was identified by a symbol on her arm by Satanists as the one chosen to bear Satan’s son during the last hour on New Year’s Eve, 1999. Due to her terrible lot in life, York is the target of corrupt officials in the Catholic Church who believe she should be killed to prevent her fate from coming into being. Eventually, she and Cane’s (Schwarzenegger) path’s cross and he becomes her defender from not only corrupt church officials, but from Satan himself. With a role like this, Schwarzenegger’s character could only be adorned in a strong, powerful timepiece, and what better model than the Royal Oak Offshore End of Days?
This watch is famous for more than its cameo; it is a horological pioneer as well! This model was the very first Royal Oak darkened with a PVD treatment. Other than PVD, this timepiece has numerous other special aesthetic features. It boasts a very rugged, masculine look with its matte black stainless steel 44mm octagonal case and dial. The dial has three subdials, a date window and electric yellow hands and hour markers. The watch’s strap is made of black Kevlar and it fastens with a Velcro strap, with an additional leather strap with matching yellow stitching. Lastly, this timepiece has a water resistance to 100 meters/330 feet.
