The genesis for the Royal Oak Offshore came about when Stephen Urquhart, joint managing director of AP at the time, tasked a young designer named Emmanuel Gueit in the late ’80s to come up with a larger version of the Royal Oak. The purpose behind this mandate was to conceive a watch that would stimulate flagging sales of the Royal Oak by appealing to a younger audience, as well as to give men a chance — in light of the growing trend of women wearing men’s watches — to continue to have the bigger watch.

To make the watch even more comfortable and wearable, for both men and women, the sleek 37mm case is made of titanium just like the bracelet with polished 950 platinum inter-links.

Powering the watch is the trusted in-house Caliber 3120 beating at 3.00 Hz and giving the watch a comfortable 60 hours of power reserve. All in all, with its striking appearance to match its impressive lightness, this superb limited edition Audemars Piguet Royal Oak bell & ross br01 fake made in 200 pieces, is a truly elegant piece which any watch connoisseur would be proud to own.

Much controversy was unleashed at the then-unheard-of 42mm diameter Tag Heuer Carrera Grand Carrera Replica of this stainless-steel behemoth when it was released in 1993, and Gérald Genta himself — the father of the original Royal Oak — was said to have burst into the AP stand at BaselWorld, denouncing the Offshore as having ruined his original design.
