Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Tour Auto 2012 Watch As for 2012, one of the most highly anticipated releases about Audemars Piguet watches is the Royal Oak Offshore Chrono Tour Auto Watch. Self-winding and made of stainless steel, it's limited to a mere 150 timepieces, which is a pretty small number in comparison to the amount of enthusiasts that would like to add one to their collection. One of the identifying factors of this particular piece is the Tour Auto logo that is located on the back of the watch. Since the logo is engraved into the metal, it is a permanent mark that will be a good identifier of authenticity when the watches go to auction in the future.
