Audemars Piguet, “Royal Oak OffShore” “Alinghi Polaris”
Launched at SIHH in 2005, the “Alinghi Polaris”, named after the star commonly used for navigation, was the first “Royal Oak” designed specifically for sailing.
Using the newly designed calibre 2326 movement with calibre 2874 chronograph module, the watch featured a fly-back chronograph with visual 10-minute countdown timer (a 10-minute central recorder and an aperture for the “Regatta” function which turns red after 9 minutes), as well as 20-minute and 6-hour recorders, with a subsidiary dial for running seconds.
Released in limited edition of 2 000 examples with 1 935 in this configuration, the model was the first, and until 2016 the only “Royal Oak” model to incorporate an inner revolving ring as found on the Scuba model (also first launched in 2005) with a chronograph.
