Notes

The Royal Oak Offshore Triple Date was introduced as the same time as the Offshore Chronograph. The model was available with a bracelet or a leather band, however on a bracelet the watch was available only in steel or in yellow gold. It is believed that fewer than 20 watches were made in white gold with a white gold bracelet.
