    The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph LeBron James (www.audemarspiguet.com) carries the NBA star’s design thumbprint as well as his name. While the designers and watchmakers at Audemars Piguet are used to creating special editions for the company’s many celebrity ambassadors, a few were caught off guard by the detailed directions that James gave them. He specified a high-contrast combination of pink gold and titanium and a gray alligator strap for the $51,500 timepiece. The diamond-set start/stop pusher adds a brash touch that runs contrary to the brawny and technical looks of previous editions of the Offshore.
