    Blending luxury and athletic designs, the present Royal Oak Offshore was crafted to celebrate the renowned cricket champion Sachin Tendulkar.

    Regarded as one of the greatest batsmen of all time, Tendulkar made his test debut at the age of sixteen by playing against Pakistan on the 15th of November 1989. Now synonymous with Indian cricket, Tendulkar is the holder of numerous records and is the only player to have scored one hundred international centuries. In parallel to sporting awards, Sachin Tendulkar was bestowed with multiple civil awards and was the youngest as well as first sportsperson to receive the Barat Ratna, awarded in recognition of exceptional service and performance of the highest order.
