    I need some help regarding my watch

    Hi,

    I just purchased an AP Royal Oak Offshore with ref number E99133,should be from the early 00s,and it came with crocs leather strap.

    I would like to put a metal one, but I can't find it for this model.

    The case is with side strap holders, without the middle two pieces...

    Can someone tell me if they make metal straps for this model?

    Make contact with APSC in Clearwater, Fl. – they’ll advise on what may be available, the cost, and how soon you can expect to receive it.

    If your RO is like mine, it has an identifier (numeric or alphanumeric) on the case back. What you have called a Ref. number looks like the identifier I'm referring to. (That E-whatever number is definitely not the Ref. number.) I think AP call the number on the case back a serial number, but I'm not 100% sure. I am sure, as a result of registering my watch with AP, that from that number, AP can tell exactly what watch you have and which AD sold it. It likely tells them even more, such as the watch's service history with AP.

    Email the AP service center in Clearwater, FL (or the one for your country if that's not it), telling them that identifier and what you want. Alternatively you can call your nearest AP boutique, and the rep there will handle the transaction for you.

    What you've posted is the serial number so maybe take it down.

    And look for the reference number in the booklets that came for it.

    Also for audemars piguet offshore, they only only come stock in leather for most models.

    If that one came to you on leather then thats the stock configuration.

    If you want the bracelet expect to pay around 2-3k USD for one, and you will need to purchase a conversion kit for it.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Your model/Reference # for this watch is 25770ST. And AP never made any bracelets for this lug style.

    You would have to find a bespoke or customized one.

    +1 these models are usually more affordable because they cannot be put on any AP OEM bracelet. I don't know of any after market bracelets for these style watches either, you might be stuck with straps.

    +2 A bracelet will not work for this model.

    Small ouch there, cause these dont have any purpose build straps built for them.

    you will be hard pressed to find one for it, and it will definitely be an OEM.

    Such a shame, but such a beauty as well.

    People underestimate the look of a solid silver dial.

    You can perhaps consider getting a custom leather or fabric strap made for your AP.

    the idea of a fabric strap intrigues me, I think I may get one done in blue for my novelty.
