The Haute Time Watch of the Day is the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Michael Schumacher edition. Audemars Piguet creates this Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph in tribute to the motor racing legend, Michael Schumacher. Schumacher has won more races, more pole positions and score more points than any other driver in the history of his sport.
The Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Michael Schumacher model features a self-winding calibre 3126/3840 movement complete with hour and minute functions, small seconds, date display and chronograph functions.
With an 18-carat pink gold case and cermet bezel, it is a perfect example of craftsmanship and design by Audemars Piguet. The dial features an anthracite galvanic centre with a “Mega Tapisserie” pattern and printed black scale inspired by the racing checkered flag. Also on the dial, black counters and pink gold markers along with 7 stars symbolizing Schumacher’s seven world championship titles. The hour and minute hands on the dial are also pink gold with white luminescent coating. The red accents on the chronograph function hands and blackened heads add to the fantastic design of this timepiece.
This limited edition Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Michael Schumacher is shown on a grey rubber strap with an 18-carat gold pin buckle. Audemars Piguet will offer 500 pieces of this tribute edition.
