The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Summer Edition 2017 26408OR.OO.A010CA.01 (take a breath), is a stunning example of workmanship from one of the world’s most luxury brands. This year’s Summer Edition release features a 44mm case in 18k rose gold, with a glare-proof sapphire crystal and sapphire case back, water resistant up to 100m. The watch features a silvered, AP trademark Mega Tapissierie dial and two-tone subdials that beautifully offset each other behind the rose gold hands, which have been coated in a luminescent material for super legibility. The Summer Edition 2017 dial also features rose gold hour markers, an AP emblem at the 3 o’clock mark, a date wheel and a white tachymeter scale on the outer ring.

The movement for this Royal Oak Offshore Summer Edition is AP’s 3126/3840 which, at just 7mm thick contains 365 separate parts and features 59 jewels, with a total power reserve of 50 hours. Unlike similar Offshore Chronograph models, this watch features all rose gold pushers, marking it out as a real show-stopper and guaranteed conversation piece. The exhibition caseback used on this watch gives the wearer to rare opportunity to admire the movement up close and personal.

The Offshore Summer Edition 2017 is finished off with a beautiful white rubber strap with a rose gold pin buckle, making it the ideal summer accessory for any fan of the French Riviera. With only 500 of these watches produced, it’s a real collectors piece and a watch you’re unlikely to see out in public, given its huge investment potential.

This particular example of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Summer Edition 2017 is now available at Time 4 Diamonds for £46,995, so don’t miss your chance to own a classic timepiece that’s sure to become rarer and rarer as other examples find their way into the hands of collectors.
