Watch: Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph
Serena Williams became an Audemars Piguet ambassador in 2014. That is an replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph. A rose gold one. And it is the watch of choice for Serena Williams. According to several sources she even wears this when playing! This stunning watch was originally designed as a men’s chronograph for extreme sports. The Royal Oak Offshore is loved by watch enthusiasts due to its strong athletic character. The new 37 mm Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph for women seems to keep the bold design of the original men’s chronograph, but in a slimmer case. We think the white-coated crown, with matching white rubber strap and bezel set with 32 brilliant-cut diamonds gives the timepiece a beautiful feminine touch.
