The Original “Signature” Arnold Schwarzenegger Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore in Yellow Gold With Brown Dial and Brown Crocodile Strap.
Limited to an Exclusive 400 Pieces!
As a faithful and demanding connoisseur, Arnold Schwarzenegger has accompanied the manufacturer Audemars Piguet for many years. After the Royal Oak Offshore chronographs created for the hero of ‘End of Days’ and then ‘Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines’, here comes a new interpretation of a model cherished by the actor, but above all the man himself: the Royal Oak Offshore Arnold Schwarzenegger chronograph.
Representing the ultra-sport version of the Royal Oak, the Royal Oak Offshore collection was designed to face up to the most extreme conditions. While retaining the spirit of the legendary octagonal watch,this collection combines horological performances, sturdiness and water-resistance. Its favorite materials? Titanium, steel and, of course, 18-carat gold for the case. This genuine “strongbox” of a watch,entirely assembled by hand, houses a movement designed to enable it to withstand any form of attacks. It is even protected from magnetic fields thanks to a soft-iron cage.
Because there is a life after film sets, Arnold Schwarzenegger has imagined another Royal Oak Offshore. A model exuding distinguished elegance, using different materials, playing on a variety of warm, contrasting shades. The 18-carat yellow gold bezel frames a dark-brown dial adorned with the mega-large tapestry motif. Illuminated by white Arabic numerals, the dial is graced with discreetly revolving gold-edged luminescent hands. In the background, the gold-coloured counters and the date display share the available space: chronograph minute and hour counters at 9 and 6 o’clock, date window at 3 o’clock and small seconds at 12 o’clock. Finally, in accordance with the technical specifications of the Royal Oak Offshore collection, the crown and push-buttons are equipped with a black-rubber guard.
Fitted with a gold AP folding clasp, the chestnut-brown crocodile leather strap is a perfect match for the 18-carat yellow gold of the bezel and case. It is harmoniously attached by means of two studs, a process new to this collection. It therefore underscores the balance between overall effect and the flowing lines, which offer powerful aesthetic appeal through its marriage of gold and leather. Finally, in an ultimate touch that carries its own significance, the caseback is engraved with the signature of Arnold Schwarzenegger. A name and a signature. A starâ€™s tribute to the manufacturer.
