Released in 2010 and discontinued shortly after, the so called ‘Gentleman’s Driver’ Royal Oak Offshore ref. 26175ST.OO.D003CU.01 is one of only seven references released by Audemars Piguet with orange accents on their dials.
Originally presented with a black perforated racing calf strap with orange double contrast stitching, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore so called ‘Gentleman’s Driver’ is reminiscent of petrol and sports cars with their steering wheels, dashboards and leather gloves, underlined by contrasting colors.
Featuring the traditional Audemars Piguet Replica Watch 42 mm stainless steel case, the chiseled bezel stands out as the most unique aspect of this timepiece. Chiseled out to highlight the hexagonal screws, the bezel combines a satin brushed finish around the screws with a bead blasted finish on the chiseled out areas.
