A piece of King James can be yours now. The Audemars Piguet “Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Limited Edition LeBron James” is here. Joining the elite ranks of Lionel Messi, Michael Schumacher and Sachin Tendulkar, LeBron James received his own Royal Oak timepiece from legendary Swiss watchmaker Audemars Piguet. As a three-time Olympian and two-time gold medalist, NBA winner, All-Star and NBA MVP, James carries the DNA Audemars Piguet is looking for in its brand ambassadors.
Combining luxury and watchmaking technology, this unique 44mm timepiece is housed in an unusual color combination of 18 karat pink gold and gray titanium case. The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Limited Edition LeBron James features a gray “Méga Tapisserie” dial, large Arabic numerals in pink gold and pink gold hands. Enhancing its uniqueness and luxury, the watch features a single diamond set chronograph push piece at two o’clock. Both chronograph push pieces and the crown is made of black ceramic. Other features include a self-winding chronograph with date display and small seconds at 12 o’clock. Watch is fitted with a gray hand-stitched crocodile strap with 18 karat pink gold pin buckle.
Powered by Swiss-made Audemars Piguet caliber 3126/3840 Automatic Chronograph in 22 karat gold, its movement visible through the sapphire crystal case back. LeBron James’ signature printed in blue on the crystal case back gives the final touch of decoration.
Issued in a 600- piece limited series, a timepiece fit for a king comes with an equally regal price tag of $51,500.
