Thin Is In
The new updated Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Watch is just as sporty, but thinner and in a gorgeous 42mm titanium case. The timepiece is 2mm thinner than the existing model but boasting the Calibre 2385 allowing for the sub-dials at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock. That is so much more than the existing model and allows for that thin 12.8mm watch to sit and fit perfectly. Still boasting the 100m water resistance the timepiece has been reborn to brilliance. The AP watch design is the octagonal shape, featuring the screwed bezel and keeps the 1972 tradition but with a spectacular thin case and showcase dial.
Blue Is The Color
The new dial was crafted to mirror the petite tapisserie guilloche pattern, but done in blue and with gray sub-dials. Audemars Piguet has created a look that offers partially skeletonized hour and minute hands, a blue second hand, and extends the color pattern to the base of the crown as well as the chronograph pusher. Offered with a blue rubber strap that compliments the dial, or a stunning stainless steel bracelet both versions are welcome. The design is a smart move by the brand to deliver a more desirable luxury sport watch. Previous chornograph layouts for the sub-dial have been 6, 9, and 12 so this AP watch is a breath of fresh air. The production is not limited edition but certainly will be a high demand with tight quantities.
Modern and Magnificent
The updated Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Watch presented in the new thinner titanium case in comparison is lightweight, and scratch-resistant. The structure of the design is solid and the smoked blue tones are striking. The darkness of the edges coupled with the bright blue centers adds to the appearance of more depth, and that sporty edge that pushes the envelope. The AP watch has captured the hearts of those who love the brand, as well as those who loved the original design. This watch took the very best of the predecessor and improved the aspects that made it even more appealing. This timepiece will be limited only because of the popularity and establishing the rightful place in the history of Audemars Piguet.
