Michael Schumacher Titanium Limited Edition 0493 of 1000 The Royal Oak Offshore Michael Schumacher starts with a substantial 44mm Offshore chronograph case, with a few crucial modifications. The one piece bezel is made of the ultra-hard CeraMet and is held down with automotive-inspired nuts. The dial is anthracite grey and features the Mega Tapisserie pattern, and additionally is marked with seven stars between 12 o'clock and 1 o'clock on the tachymeter scale. These represent Schumacher's two championships with Benetton and five championships with Ferrari - his seven championships are more than any other driver in history. The minutes track is styled after racing's famous checkered flags, and the chronograph registers recall automotive instruments. Continuing the automotive inspiration, the hour and minute hands are an entirely new shape for Audemars Piguet. Designed to recall the shape of a racing car's monocoque, they're made of faceted gold and are coated in luminescent material. The date is displayed in red and the red chronograph hands feature subtly blackened tips to help focus the eye on the measurement being taken. Even the studs that hold on the rubber strap are styled to look like cooling scoops, and the crown is reminiscent of a gear wheel. The case back is styled after a wheel's spokes and the rotor's cut-outs look like NACA ducts. The racing inspiration has been extended to literally every piece of this watch, big and small.
1st & foremost, we understand & take responsibility for the fact that both tastes & horological fashions are ever changing.
We do this by being willing to take back past pieces we've sold either in the form of part exchanges or cash when needed.
With clients rarely loosing more than 15-20% in this process & even benefitting from large profits on occasion, we believe this is the way to build trust with the public. For example. If going 'off piste' & not sticking to in vogue trendy watches such as Batman's, we believe you would incur the same monetary loss spending £20,000 with us on your various purchases as you would spending £8500 at new RRP.
The very fact that we've never advertised in over 30 years shows we have a long standing loyal customer base. Please see testimonials for more on this.

Like the reintroduction of the Mini motorcar over a decade ago, this reinterpretation of Big Pilot by IWC is better than the original. This 1st series Platinum example is of course the top of the top.
