Description

Forged carbon was a deliberate choice for the casemiddle of the Royal Oak Offshore Singapore Grand Prix Chronograph, inspired by the aerofoils, vents and other appendages of the gleaming Formula 1 cars, this sophisticated material stems from a lengthy and meticulous development process. It is composed of carbon fibers compressed at high temperature. The molecular structure thus obtained ensures a winning blend of lightness, resistance and hardness. Machining an extremely dense carbon also creates a distinctive appearance admirably highlighted by the steel bezel and its studs, while eight black PVD-coated steel screws underscore the legendary octagonal shape. Red and black are the ultra-sporty color codes of the Royal Oak Offshore Singapore Grand Prix Chronograph; Black forged carbon case middle enhanced by chronograph push-pieces and a red rubber-molded crown; Black flange with tachometer scale running around the red dial decorated with an exclusive Méga Tapisserie motif; Small seconds, black 30-minute counter (at 9) and 12-hourcounter (at 6); Perforated leather strap with red double stitching echoing the color of the alcantara lining; Picking up the Grand Prix logo, the case back is engraved with the inscription Royal Oak Offshore – Limited Edition – Singapore GP 2008, serving as a discreet reminder that owning a watch from this strictly limited series of 250 is a rare privilege indeed. While some truly impressive engines throb beneath the hood of Formula 1 cars,the movement powering the Royal Oak Offshore Singapore Grand Prix Chronograph is no less exceptional. The exclusive self-winding Audemars Piguet Caliber 3126 combines sturdiness, reliability and rating precision: up to 60 hours' power reserve thanks to the barrel spring which improves rating precision by supplying constant force for a longer period of time; a cross-through balance-cock reinforcing the stability of the movement; a balance-stop mechanism serving to immobilize the seconds hand and thus enable time-setting to the nearest second; a variable-inertia balance fitted with eight inertia-blocks guaranteeing accurate and stable setting; fast date adjustment equipped with an integrated security system avoiding any risk of blocking the date disc by inadvertently performing a correction at midnight; a 22-carat gold rotor mounted on a ball-bearing mechanism ensuring bidirectional automatic winding of the barrel spring. Chronograph 3840 is integrated within this high-performance movement. As soon as it is activated, the 30-minute counter (at 9), the 12-hour counter (at 6) and the central chronograph seconds hand spring into action and enable sixth-of-a-second timing.
