The Subject: Michael Bastian
The Watch: Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph 41mm
The Details: "I've always been a one-watch kind of guy. The watch I wear to the gym is the same watch I wear to a formal event. That's a lot to ask of one watch, and this one actually looks great and performs in any situation."
What he likes about the design: "It's both classic and sporty, and is really my first grown-up watch that I feel I can happily wear every day for the rest of my life. Yes, it's a big investment, but for something that becomes part of you, it's worth it. By the way, the rubber band bracelet I'm wearing is a gift from my eight-year-old twin nieces."
