Brand: Audemars Piguet
- AUDEMARS PIGUET ROYAL OAK OFFSHORE 18K ROSE GOLD (BYBLOS EDITION) 26408OR.OO.A010CA.01.99
Details: Pink gold Royal Oak Offshore chronograph dressed in white. The trademark dial features the brand’s tapisserie pattern, snailed subdials and the AP logo at 3 o’clock. It is framed by a tachymeter scale. The pink gold hour markers and Royal Oak hands feature luminescent coating. The white rubber strap is closed by a pin buckle. The emblematic 44 mm pink gold case with its large rectangular pushers is built around the chronograph movement 3126 calibre with automatic winding. As always with Audemars Piguet, the finishing of the movement is top notch and can be admired through the exhibition case back. Held by eight screws, the case back features the hotel’s anniversary dates and its coat of arms (depicting the abduction of the nymph Europa by Zeus).Overall, this limited edition is well-thought out, capturing both the brand’s elegant sportiness and the relaxed Mediterranean spirit of the French Riviera. Being a Royal Oak Offshore chronograph, it is a statement on the wrist but I appreciate that Audemars Piguet and Le Byblos have not dressed up this partnership too much, with only the case-back personalization.
