Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore vs. Hublot Big Bang
While the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak dates back to 1972, the bolder Royal Oak Offshore first saw daylight 21 years later in 1993. The 42-mm Offshore was designed by Emmanuel Gueit. It is said that Stephen Urquhart, then a manager at Audemars Piguet and later CEO of Omega, asked Gueit to come up with something special for the 20th anniversary of the Royal Oak. Not everyone was happy with the daring and large design of the Royal Oak Offshore, but in 1993 it was finally introduced to the public.
