Description

Audemars Piguet Barrichello II "Stealth" Bespoke Special Edition in Pure Black Physical Vapor Deposition Titanium Royal Oak Offshore, Black Ceramic Bezel, Black & White Transparent Dial, Black Formula1 Perforated Leather Strap with a Titanium Foldover Deployant, Limited 1000 Pieces.

Titanium is as strong as steel but less dense which makes it extremely light and very durable. It's used in lightweight alloys for aerospace (jet engines, missiles, and spacecraft), military, and the automotive industry. Pure Black Physical Vapor Deposition DLC, a military-grade ceramic particle coating, is not only celebrated for its aesthetic quality, but the impeccable durability it brings - substantially increasing both the wear resistance and life expectancy of a watch. Using bold black and 18kt Rose Gold accents to highlight the defining features of the watch, the resulting effect is a perfect composition of tones and a sleek timepiece for any watch enthusiast.

It has a solid screw-down intricately engraved limited edition case back secured with 8 hexagonal screws, and the 44mm diameter solid three-body case and integral lugs are brushed/polished. The exclusive timepiece was made especially for the legendary champion and is in keeping with the Royal Oak Offshore Rubens Barrichello collection, conveying its key qualities. The unique design draws on the world of motor racing to create a subtle blend of F1 finesse and fine watchmaking, featuring a bezel adorned with eight screws reminiscent of engine screws, a bezel joint in the image of a ventilated disc brake, strap attachments in the shape of pedals, a crown akin to a gear cog and pushpieces in the form of an air extractor.

It has a partially transparent black Clous de Paris dial, with luminous hour markers, white gold Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating, an outer minute/second scale, and an outermost tacyhmeter scale to 1000 Units on an inclined white reserve. There is a subsidiary 30-minute chronograph dial at 9 o'clock, a twelve-hour sub-dial at 6 o'clock, and a constant seconds dial at 12 o'clock.

The automatic self-winding Audemars Piguet caliber 2326/2840 movement is rhodium-plated, with oeil-de-perdrix embellishment, and a cam chronograph mechanism. It's constructed with 54 jewels, a shock absorber mechanism, a straight-line lever escapement, and a monometallic balance that's adjusted to heat, cold, isochronism and 5 positions with variable inertia blocks. It has a self-compensating flat balance spring, a mobile stud balance spring stud holder, and a hacking seconds mechanism. The 21K gold oscillating weight has ceramic ball bearings, and the mechanism oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 vph (4 Hz).

This is definitely not your average AP Royal Oak; it is not even just a watch. The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Barrichello II is a statement; a testament to Audemars Piguet's heritage, a reflection of AP's confidence in its leadership position in the industry, and a glimpse at the future, all in one spectacular wristwatch.

Whether viewed from the front, the side, or back, all angles provide the same clear-cut impression of dynamic, aggressive, taut and complex shapes that are undeniably reminiscent of gleaming automobile bodywork. Owning a watch like this is a privilege afforded to very few collectors, since producing a watch like this requires a master to produce it.

In every respect, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore transcends the realm of mere timekeeping to become a wearable work of art. Its captivating design, intricate movement, and seamless fusion of materials pay homage to the vision of Gerald Genta while firmly establishing itself as a modern icon of horological excellence.
