Audemars PIguet launched the first Royal Oak ‘Offshore’ in 1993. This model differs from the Royal Oak,  and other watches of the time, by its oversized case of… 42 mm! This diameter no longer surprises anyone today, but its huge dimensions earned it a lot of criticisms and the nickname ‘The Beast’. Almost 30 years later, and after more than 150 variations, the Royal Oak ‘Offshore’ is one of Audemars Piguet’s bestsellers.
