Audemars Piguet recently released a new version of the Royal Oak Offshore in honor of Rubens Barrichello. The picture shown is the only edition of this watch, because it is a one of a kind.
The unique design draws on the world of motor racing to create a subtle blend of F1 finesse and fine watchmaking, featuring a bezel adorned with eight screws reminiscent of engine screws, a bezel joint in the image of a ventilated disc brake, strap attachments in the shape of pedals, a crown akin to a gear cog and pushpieces in the form of an air extractor. The exclusive watch also boasts a pink-gold case, boldly blended with titanium studs, pushpieces and crown protector. The watch back carries the inscription "R. Barrichello - 257 - New Grand Prix Record", showing the Rubens Barrichello logo and name of the timepiece.
