WHY WE THINK THIS WATCH IS IMPORTANT
Limited to only 35 pieces, of which this watch is number 01, the Royal Oak Offshore "Las Vegas Strip" Tourbillon was released by Audemars Piguet to honor the iconic destination. The manual winding movement can be spied through the sapphire crystal caseback. The case itself has been composed of forged carbon and accented with a black PVD-treated stainless steel bezel. A tourbillon anchors the watch face, set among the iconic “Méga Tapisserie” patterned black dial. A reference with celebrity clout, rapper and mogul Jay Z was the first ever to buy a "Las Vegas Strip" Tourbillon before putting it up for auction to benefit charity—fortifying a piece already highly sought after by collectors.
With a power reserve up to 72 hours and chronograph functionality, this watch also aims to deliver the best time-telling tools. Luminous hands and Arabic hour markers denote hours and minutes—complemented by a 30-minute and 60-seconds sub-dial. It's hard to find a piece this rare and relevant, but the masculine aesthetic and numerous, precise AP functions make it more than covetable.
This timepiece comes complete with all accompanying boxes, manuals, and original warranty from Audemars Piguet.
