    Inaugurated in 2010, the Royal Oak Offshore Grand Prix embodies the creativity and savoir-faire developed by Audemars Piguet throughout the years.

    By experimenting with carbon in the 1980s and learning from the aeronautical industry, the Swiss manufacture developed a keen sense of the material’s potential and the possibilities of adapting it to watch making.
    Built to withstand the most athletic lifestyles, the Royal Oak Offshore welcomed the use of forged carbon, making it both extremely robust and light. Throughout the use of such a material, Audemars Piguet has been able to create both iconic and avant-gardist timepieces, such as the Millenary Carbon One, the Juan Pablo Montoya or Rubens Barrichello limited editions.

    Offered in “Like New” overall condition and with all its accessories, the undeniable appeal of the present chronograph makes it an exciting example for Audemars Piguet enthusiasts.
