Audemars Piguet partnered with Michael Schumacher, a legendary racing seven-time champion, to participate in the development of watches in person, including many car-inspired design elements. Statistically, he was the most successful.Formula One driver ever, winning the most Formula One World Championship for a total of seven times.

Although Schumacher has worked with another watch brand in the past, his role at Audemars Piguet goes beyond the usual ambassador. He has been actively involved with Octavio Garcia, chief art officer at Audemars Piguet, in designing this limited edition watch.

Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Michael Schumacher Limited Edition 44 mm diameter housing with titanium (1000 pieces); 18-karat rose gold (500 pieces) and platinum 950 (100 pieces).

The gray dial has the familiar “Mega Tapisserie” pattern of Royal Oak Offshore and carefully marks seven stars around the speedometer scale between 12 and 1 o’clock positions – two blue and five red – representing Schumacher Record the

This watch has three styles to choose from: titanium, pink gold and platinum. Titanium version is my favorite model number, the color combination is the most wonderful and most accessible price.

The choice of case material determines the color tone on the dial. The MegaTapisserie Dial Center is true to the first Offshore models of 1992.

The central part of the time scale and the time scale frame is a chapter ring decorated with black and white squares. They represent the many checkered flags that Michael Schumacher has taken step by step on top of the podium. Red
text on black background for date use. An unusual combination of colors, red is good. The date is deep inside the dial, this is the only aspect that I will change. I hope the date discs are closer to the surface of the dial to enhance legibility.

Eight platinum time stamps are applied, except at 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock, 9 o’clock and 12 o’clock. The latter has dual platinum application timestamps.

The 12-hour timer is located at 6 o’clock and the 30-minute timer is at 9 o’clock. Both sub-dials are black titanium versions that match the main color and date features of the loop. The pointer on both sub-dials is red.

The 12 o’clock position is a black sub-dial used as a small second hand, but this time it is equipped with a white hand.Use color wisely to distinguish between timing and non-timing functions. Red is a small seconds, white hours, minutes and small seconds.

The shell is made of grade 5 titanium. This metal is used in the aerospace and medical industries. It is very intense and incredible light.

Cermet for bezel. It is very hard and virtually scratch-resistant. Michael explained that he was wearing his watch in his daily routine, including when he was working in his go-kart. He wants the watch to be durable, scratch-free and maintain
its original look.

Eight polished stainless steel bezel screws illuminate and brilliantly contrast with the brushed appearance of adjacent cermets and titanium.

The rectangular timing pushrod is made of polished black ceramic with a micro-spray titanium cap on the top. The center of the thruster is slightly hollow, reminding us of a racing engine that removes excess material from it to reduce weight.

The crown includes 5 arms and is designed to resemble a gear. On the vertical flanks of the crown, a red anodized aluminum plate with the symbol of Audemars Piguet. Red is Schumache’s favorite color.

Titanium version of the gray rubber strap with titanium screws fixed on the case. They are decorated with motifs that mimic Formula One cooling pipes.

I am also an Audemars Piguet and acquired my own AP many years ago before I wrote about the watch. One of my disappointments, however, is that some models exploit incredible craftsmanship in the case but hide their sight.
