*Unpolished* 2010 Audemars Piguet Royal Offshore Chronograph (Ref. 26170ST) W/ Full Set
For what originally started as an anniversary edition of the Royal Oak in 1993, the Offshore series of watches quickly evolved to become a staple offering in Audemars Piguet's catalog. Though the chunky diving chronograph wasn't an immediate success, a trait shared with the original Royal Oak ref. 5402, through the use of experimental materials, sophisticated complications, and massive celebrity endorsements, the Offshore has left an everlasting mark on the watchmaking industry and is one of the most popular watches to come from AP. By taking the original 'sports watch' template of the Gerald Genta-designed Royal Oak and beefing it up to 11 with a larger case and ISO certification, the Offshore started a new generation of diving watches marketed towards recreational use.
