Response to Was the 1st Offshore launched in 1993 offered in Steel or Titanium?
I do recall the first time I saw an Offshore in a shop window. I had recently bought a small tantalum Royal Oak, so I recognized the brand. I remember being shocked at the massive size of the Offshore and wondering if the multiple subdials related to nautical navigation. I asked a sales clerk what it was, but left with the impression that it was some special gear for ship captains. It was 10 years before I purchased the first of many Offshores.
I guess that just makes me a late adopter, as I wouldn't use e-mail until 2000 or an iPhone until 2011.
