It proved so popular that Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica eventually produced a limited-edition Royal Oak Offshore End of Days watch that still looked good in its black and yellow theme. Royal Oak Offshore The Legacy is the first Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore watch “just because” produced for Arnold Schwarzenegger.
It’s actually bigger if you factor in the crown and buttons. I said this watch wears like a 55mm wide watch and it turns out the strap is very long. In fact, given the length of the strap, I couldn’t even wear this watch — not to mention that the case easily sticks out of the edge of my wrist.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph Replica wanted to satisfy Schwarzenegger’s wrist, and anyone else with a similar anatomy, with this watch. So while some may complain that The Legacy watch is too big, they just need to realize that it’s not designed for them.
From a design standpoint, what struck me when the Royal Oak Offshore The Legacy debuted in 2011 was how simple and elegant the overall look was. Until then, many limited-edition Royal Oak Offshore watches were designed to be very refined and technical.
Audemars Piguet conducted extensive design and material experiments with their limited edition models. That’s a good thing, but with The Legacy, Audemars Piguet is clearly trying to create a more elegant – albeit very manly – limited-edition Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Replica.
The green, grey, black, and matte rose gold tones of this piece work so well together. My only real complaint about the watch is the fabric strap, which is not of great quality. The strap looks beautiful, but even on this lightly worn piece, the strap loops come apart and there is a lot of visible wear.
Fabric straps are cool in theory, but hard to get right. I recommend that anyone interested in this watch immediately consider another more durable strap option.
The case has the familiar Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replica look, but features a number of custom elements that make The Legacy feel different and striking, eight years after its initial release. The buttons and case-side hardware are reminiscent of previous Royal Oak Offshore watches, inspired by Mr. Schwarzenegger’s previous Audemars Piguet watches.
The dial is my favorite part of the watch, featuring “sweatshirt-style” Arabic numerals in frosted rose gold. The case itself is in dark grey/black ceramic with titanium elements (like screws) and 18k rose gold (for pushers and crown inserts).
Aesthetically, I think the Audemars Piguet Replica Watches Swiss Movement The Legacy watch is very durable. It’s still pretty and feels classy considering its size.
Inside The Legacy watch is a decent but unremarkable movement – the Audemars Piguet 2326/2840 Automatic Chronograph – which uses a base automatic movement and a 12-hour chronograph.
