Here’s the new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore New York 57th Street special edition that some have been waiting for. Obviously this watch is to commemorate, and will be exclusively available at, AP’s recently opened New York flagship store that was opened late 2009.
While some will clamor to get this watch, well as for me…..what can I say – I’m less than impressed. What’s up with that color scheme? The stitching on the strap doesn’t even appear to match the “peachy” looking color on the dial. I guess I am just getting tired….yawn….with AP’s “SKU proliferation” (c’mon let’s face it – Audemars Piguet has way, way too many variations on its famous Royal Oak Offshore line). Do we really need a Montauk Highway ROO and a 57th Street ROO? I’m not even going to comment on the diamond bezeled version.
Maybe I’ll post some more details / specs later, but for now here’s the watch (and a nice exterior pic of AP’s 57th St Boutique):
