Audemars Piguet replica watches were the hotel’s chosen partner for a timepiece and the Swiss watchmaker is honored to be creating two celebratory timepieces in celebration of this important anniversary – a diamond-set Royal Oak Offshore for ladies; and a rose gold Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph for men.
Created in 1993, the Royal Oak Offshore collection was one of the very first oversized wristwatches to catch the consumer’s eye. Today the collection remains one of Audemars Piguet’s bestsellers thanks to its sporty and powerful design.
The design of this new Byblos Summer Edition incorporates the color codes of the Hotel Byblos and the design codes of Audemars Piguet. “The boldness of the Royal Oak Offshore, its contemporary design and young spirit are the perfect match for the Byblos, which is such a young-spirited institution. These two timepieces represent the strong and natural synergy existing between the Byblos and Audemars Piguet,” notes a spokesman for the brand.
The Byblos Royal Oak Offshore for women comes in a stainless steel case with a silver “Lady Tapisserie” dial that is framed with a bezel of 32 brilliant-cut diamonds, for a total of 1.02 carats. The timepiece features a luminescent coating on the rose-gold hands and is water-resistant to 50 meters thanks to its screw-locked crown and pushers.
The men’s version, the Audermars Piguet Byblos Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph fake watches, comes in an 18-karat rose gold case and features a “Mega Tapisserie” dial, pink gold hands and markers, and is water-resistant to 100 meters.
“Usually his and hers models are made from the same materials and only vary in terms of size. Here it is not the case. The women’s version is made of steel while the men’s version is made of pink gold, meaning that the female version is almost sportier than the men’s, were it not for the diamonds! The idea was to juxtapose precious materials with more sporty elements like the rubber strap. Both pieces had to be precious but fun and easy to wear in order to mirror the Byblos’ philosophy,” adds Audemars Piguet’s spokesperson.
