In the late '80s, Stephen Urquhart, then the joint managing director of AP, asked Emmanuel Gueit, a young designer, to create a larger version the Royal Oak Offshore. This mandate was givenblancpain replica watches to create a watch that would boost the Royal Oak's sales by appealing to younger people. It also gave men the opportunity to keep the larger watch, in light of growing interest in men wearing watches for men.
The 42mm diameter of this stainless steel behemoth was a source of controversy. Gerald Genta, the father of the original Royal Oak, was reported to have jumped into the AP stand at BaselWorld and denounced the Offshore for destroying his original design.
With its 42mm case, the Royal Oak Offshore broke the size barrier in 1993. It set a new standard for large-sized watches. It was the first Offshore model, featuring a blue dial that echoed the Royal Oak.
The Offshore is a unique and diverse vessel. Its spirit has expanded to encompass many forms. First models were made in stainless steel, platinum and gold. Now,omega replica watches there are many exotic materials available, including titanium, carbon, ceramic and rubber. This materials innovation has led to a limited-edition Alinghi Team model in carbon-forged Offshore.
We believe there are many variations of the Royal Oak Offshore that are not well known. This is why we are pleased to offer a limited edition Offshores that have the potential to be future collectibles.
