Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Michael Schumacher Edition Watch
Michael Schumacher is internationally regarded for many different things. He is considered one of the finest F1 formula racing drivers in the world and he is also considered to be an expert in style and quality. Michael Schumacher has been an ambassador for the Audemars Piguet watch company for many years, and the two entities finally decided to get together and create a watch that lives up to the high standards of Michael Schumacher. The Audemars Piguet Michael Schumacher Special Edition Royal Oak Offshore watch is the result of years of collaboration and Schumacher’s international experience in style and comfort. The first thing that people need to know about the line of Audemars Piguet Michael Schumacher Royal Oak Offshore watch is that there will only be a total of 1,600 watches made. There will be 500 watches made with an 18-carat rose gold case, there will be 1,000 pieces made with a titanium case and there will a special lot of 100 made with a durable platinum 950 case. These are 44mm cases constructed with Schumacher’s exact specs for the ideal luxury sports watch. To add a little more of Schumacher’s personal touch to the watch, the bezel has seven red and blue stars which are there to commemorate Schumacher’s seven world title championships. These watches are built like sports watches but have all of the luxury one would expect from an Audemars Piguet watch. The setting dial is surrounded by a protective piece that extends the look of the bezel and gives the watch a more durable feel. One of the fun aspects of the bezel is that it is fastened to the face of the watch using eight small screws that are designed to look like the lugs from the wheels of Michael Schumacher’s race cars. As fun as this watch is to discover, it has plenty of durable features and precision engineering that make it a one of a kind watch. Schumacher himself got involved in engineering and developing this watch, which adds to its durability. It is protected on the front by a sapphire crystal face, which also defends against the sudden shocks that watches sometimes take. The back of the watch is emblazoned with Schumacher’s name as well as the Royal Oak Offshore moniker as well. The precious gems used to create the precision timing device in this watch are fully protected from the elements and can also withstand a level of shock that most other watches are incapable of tolerating. This is truly the watch of an international man of style and quality.
