Which Arnold Schwarzenegger watches are well known?

When one thinks of an Arnold Schwarzenegger watch, most people immediately think of an extremely large, imposing watch. After all, a Schwarzenegger timepiece needs to complement the strong, muscular arms of the former bodybuilder. At his peak, Schwarzenegger had an upper arm circumference of over 19 inches. A 36-mm watch is simply too small for such muscle mass. Today, Schwarzenegger is still known for his early bodybuilding career.
The most well-known Arnold Schwarzenegger watches are from the Swiss luxury manufacturer Audemars Piguet. The manufacturer from Le Brassus is known for refined Swiss watches. One of their most successful models is the Royal Oak Offshore, a distinctive chronograph with a porthole design. Audemars Piguet introduced the timepiece with a chronograph function in 1993. The Arnold Schwarzenegger watches from AP, as fans have nicknamed the company, are a part of the Royal Oak Offshore collection. Every Schwarzenegger model is a limited edition and in high demand. Since these watches are so rare, they maintain a stable value. Particularly highly coveted Arnold Schwarzenegger watches are the Royal Oak Offshore T3, Royal Oak Offshore End of Days, Royal Oak Offshore Arnold's All-Stars, and the Royal Oak Offshore The Legacy.

How much does an Arnold Schwarzenegger watch cost?

Generally, Audemars Piguet timepieces aren't for those on a tight budget, and neither are their Arnold Schwarzenegger watches. You should plan on spending at least 20,000 euros on a titanium model, and at least 70,000 euros on an 18-karat rose gold model.
Model Features Size Run Price
Arnold's All-Stars 18-karat rose gold, chronograph, 50-hour power reserve 48 mm 350 About 60,000 euros
End of Days Black PVD coating, chronograph 44 mm 500 About 31,000 euros
The Legacy Ceramic case, chronograph 48 mm 1,500 About 30,000 euros
T3 Titanium case, chronograph 48 mm 1,000 About 22,000 euros

Arnold Schwarzenegger Royal Oak Offshore The Legacy

The Legacy watch is one of the newer watches that carries Arnold Schwarzenegger's name. The full name of the timepiece is the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Arnold Schwarzenegger The Legacy Chronograph. Its reference number is almost as long as its name: 26378IO.OO.A001KE.01.
The 48-mm wristwatch is limited to a run of 1,500. With a thickness of 14.8 mm, the chronograph makes a bold statement on your wrist. When you look at the black dial, its rose gold Arabic numerals immediately catch your eye. The "méga tapisserie" pattern on the dial is also on the push-pieces controlling the chronograph. Like the hour markers, the push-pieces, hour hand, and minute hand are made of rose gold. Additionally, both hands are luminous.
Audemars Piguet chose black ceramic for the case and bezel of this Schwarzenegger watch. The case back is made of titanium with the model name engraved. The screw-down crown ensures that the timepiece is waterproof to 100 m (10 bar). One highlight of The Legacy is its strap, which is made of aramid fibers, also known as Kevlar. This material is commonly used in bulletproof vests. The use of Kevlar makes the strap extremely robust, and sapphire glass protects the dial from damage.
The automatic chronograph caliber 2326/2840 powers The Legacy. It has a 38-hour power reserve and vibrates at 28,800 A/h. There's a date display at three o'clock.
You can purchase the Arnold Schwarzenegger The Legacy watch pre-owned and in very good condition starting at around 30,000 euros. New timepieces are rare, as there weren't many originally produced. You should plan on spending over 40,000 euros for a new The Legacy.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Royal Oak Offshore T3

In 2003, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines was released, the third film in the Terminator series. Reprising his role from 20 years earlier, Schwarzenegger played the Terminator. In celebration of the film, Audemars Piguet introduced the Arnold Schwarzenegger Royal Oak Offshore T3. The special edition was limited to a run of 1,000; 750 of the watches had a black dial, and 250 had a white dial.
The Terminator Offshore has a titanium case and a protector over the push-pieces and crown. The case has a diameter of 48 mm. With a thickness of 16 mm, this chronograph isn't the thinnest available, but thanks to its titanium case, it's very lightweight. Since the case is waterproof to 100 m (10 bar), you can even go swimming with the Terminator Offshore. Scratch-resistant sapphire glass covers the dial, giving you a crystal-clear view. The dial is black and has a tapisserie pattern. A tachymeter scale is located on the edge of the dial, which you can use to determine speed. The black dial contrasts with the white Arabic numerals, and a leather strap with a pin buckle keeps the timepiece solidly on your wrist.
The in-house caliber 2226/2840 powers the Royal Oak Offshore T3. It vibrates at a frequency of 28,800 A/h. The movement features a date display at three o'clock, a small seconds under 12 o'clock, a minute counter at nine o'clock, and an hour counter at six o'clock. It has a power reserve of 38 hours.
The T3 is available pre-owned starting at 22,000 euros. As Audemars Piguet only produced 1,000 of the watches, new ones are very rare. You should plan on spending at least 32,000 euros for a new watch.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Royal Oak Offshore End of Days

The Royal Oak Offshore End of Days is another Arnold Schwarzenegger watch from Audemars Piguet. It was introduced around the turn of the century in conjunction with the release of the film End of Days, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. With a limited run of only 500, the End of Days is an especially rare Royal Oak Offshore. With a diameter of 44 mm, the timepiece isn't as imposing as the other Schwarzenegger watches. Furthermore, the End of Days appears smaller due to its black-coated case, which means its suitable for mid-sized wrists as well. The dark Kevlar strap goes amazingly well with the black case, emphasizing the overall robust and sturdy look of the chronograph. Its neon yellow hands and Arabic numerals are eye catchers, creating a stark contrast against the black dial. Audemars Piguet also uses the caliber 2226/2840 for the End of Days.
Due to the limited run of 500 watches, there are almost exclusively pre-owned Royal Oak End of Days available. In good condition, one of these Schwarzenegger watches costs around 31,000 euros. The price for a watch in very good condition costs more, around 40,000 euros.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Royal Oak Offshore Arnold's All-Stars

If you prefer a Schwarzenegger watch made of gold, then the Royal Oak Offshore Arnold's All-Stars is the perfect choice. The 48-mm chronograph has an 18-karat pink gold case. Audemars Piguet created this model in honor of Arnold Schwarzenegger's social engagement. Schwarzenegger has supported the After-School All-Stars foundation since 1990. This organization is dedicated to helping students find suitable careers after graduation.
The Royal Oak Offshore Arnold's All-Stars has a diameter of 48 mm and is limited to a run of 350, making it extremely rare. The pink gold Arabic numerals match the case, and the brown dial with its tapisserie offers a harmonious contrast to the gold. Audemars Piguet pairs this watch with either a black or brown leather strap. The Royal Oak Offshore Arnold's All-Stars is the most classic Schwarzenegger watch from Audemars Piguet. The Le Brassus-based manufacturer uses the caliber 3126/3840 to power this chronograph. Its balance wheel vibrates at a frequency of 21,600 A/h and has a power reserve of 50 hours.
The price for a pre-owned Royal Oak Offshore Arnold's All-Stars in very good condition is around 60,000 euros.

Which Arnold Schwarzenegger watch should I wear?

Arnold Schwarzenegger watches were designed with men in mind. Their massive cases make them most suitable for larger wrists. If your wrist is a bit smaller, then consider the Royal Oak Offshore End of Days. With a diameter of 44 mm, this watch is suitable for most men. If you're not a bodybuilder or particularly large, you can still purchase a Schwarzenegger watch from Audemars Piguet. These limited edition watches are appealing to collectors and Schwarzenegger fans as well. You don't necessarily have to wear these Royal Oak Offshore watches – you can simply add them to your collection.
Arnold Schwarzenegger's personal watch collection is rather large. The Austrian is well known for being a watch enthusiast. In 2015, together with the Brazilian company Magnum Group, Schwarzenegger presented his own watch brand. The three collections were made up of gigantic watches with diameters up to 50 mm. Privately and in the film Eraser, Schwarzenegger wears a Panerai Luminor, a diving watch with a distinctive crown protection. Previously, Schwarzenegger has also worn classic pilot's watches from the German company Laco.

Schwarzenegger Watches: Inspired by the Royal Oak

The Arnold Schwarzenegger watches were inspired by Audemars Piguet's Royal Oak timepiece. This watch revolutionized the watch market when it was released in the 1970s. It was the first stainless steel watch to cost more than a gold watch. Furthermore, the Royal Oak had a groundbreaking design. Gérald Genta, perhaps the most famous Swiss watch designer, designed the Royal Oak. It has a distinctive hexagonal bezel with visible screws and an integrated metal bracelet. Today, the Royal Oak is one of the most famous and sought-after watches in the world. You often have to wait months before buying a Royal Oak from a store. Therefore, fans of this watch are often willing to pay a bit more for a new Royal Oak online if it means they'll receive the watch sooner. Generally, this watch should maintain its value, or even increase in value. A new stainless steel Royal Oak with reference number 15202ST costs around 23,000 euros.
