Catalogue Essay Like its namesake, the limited edition LeBron James Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph by Audemars Piguet is a trendsetter that defines style, sophistication, and overall good taste. First released in 1993, the Offshore was the modern and sporty interpretation of the iconic Gerald Genta-designed Royal Oak model. Produced to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Royal Oak, The original Offshore featured an automatic chronograph movement and came in an impressive 42mm diameter case, which while today is the norm, it was considered massive in 1993 and was quickly nicknamed “The Beast”. The limited edition LeBron James, made in 600 examples, celebrates the famed basketball player who in his first year of play with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2003 was named NBA Rookie of the Year. The LeBron James Offshore chronograph has style and personality. The pink gold case is topped with a brushed titanium bezel, and oversized ceramic chronograph pushers, with the start/stop button uniquely set with diamonds. The grey tapisserie dial has applied pink gold Arabic numerals and blue hands for the chronograph’s sweep seconds, 30 minute, and 12 hour registers. The sapphire crystal display back features James’s signature in blue and provides a window to the highly finished movement featuring an open-worked 22K gold rotor with anthracite galvanic treatment and raised AP logo. Presented in unused condition, and complete with guarantee and LeBron James presentation box, the present chronograph is a dynamic watch that pays tribute both to a stellar brand and one of their most famous ambassadors.
