Once again Audemars Piguet leaps to the forefront with the Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph!
Magnificent 18K Pink Gold case, Carbon Bezel, Ceramic Crown & Push-pieces
All of the tradition is there but there is also the presence of cutting-edge technology and new materials.
The Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph is intended for connoisseurs of fine watchmaking with a distinct preference for beautiful watches and cutting edge designs.
