Audemars Piguet has created a new Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph, it is a titanium limited edition developed for a highly popular Paris-based retailer named Chronopassion located on the well known Rue St. Honoré. The beautiful titanium case has a microbille bead-blasted - or sand blasted as we call it here in the states - finish, which creates a look of frosted metal. The surface of the octagonal Royal Oak bezel has a microbille bead-blasted finish as well, though the beveled edge is a high polish which is matched nicely by the polishing on the eight hexagonal bezel screws. The standard Royal Oak "Grand Tapisserie" waffle pattern dial features white gold Arabic markers and hands with a luminous treatment for easy readability, and a large magnified date window at 3 o'clock. Each timepiece has a black rubber strap and a microbille bead-blasted titanium folding clasp. The case back is engraved with the limited edition number of the watch, as well as the words "Limited Edition Chronopassion". The Chronopassion Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph will be produced in a limited edition of 50 pieces.

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Chronopassion Limited Edition uses the 3126/3840 caliber movement, a movement used in several of AP's limited Edition creations as of late - such as the Survivor and the Grand Prix models. Comprised of 365 carefully finished parts, the 3126/3840 has a rapid-adjust date display, stop seconds, and a chronograph complication with 30-minute and 12-hour totalizers and a power reserve of approximately 60 hours. It has a variable-inertia balance with eight masselotte weights, a fast date correction and a highly stable balance cock, as well as the massive 22-karat gold rotor that winds the mainspring in both of its directions of rotation. An anti-magnetic strongbox cage protects the caliber's precision against the negative effects of magnetic fields. It also has finely polished screw and jewel settings, a perlage on the plate and undersides of the bridges, and Cotes de Geneve finishing on the bridges.
