To celebrate the Royal Oak Offshore’s 30th anniversary, Audemars Piguet introduces four 37 mm Selfwinding Chronograph models with bezels adorned with diamonds and coloured gemstones for a sporty and glamourous look.
Executed in a choice of 18-carat pink gold, yellow gold or stainless steel, these references feature a host of new aesthetic details that align with the collection’s design evolution presented in 2021, notably on 43 mm models.
Among the highlights, the Lady Tapisserie has been redesigned to enhance legibility. Fresh dial colours join the mix with new hues including light blue, royal blue and a delicate salmon colour.
In addition, the four timepieces are equipped with Audemars Piguet’s interchangeable strap system, enabling the owners to experiment with different looks.
Two timepieces are embellished with a bezel paved with brilliant-cut diamonds and come in a choice of 18-carat pink gold or stainless steel cases. The sparkle created by the brilliant-cut diamonds furthers the hand finishing decorating the multifaceted cases. The Manufacture’s trademark alternation of satin-brushing and polished chamfers bestows the timepieces with an endless play with the light.
The pink gold version boasts a light blue dial and a beige interchangeable rubber strap. This timepiece also comes with an additional light blue rubber strap echoing the colour of the dial.
The stainless steel model adorns a warm salmon coloured dial and is fitted with a light grey interchangeable rubber strap matching the case colour. An additional dark grey rubber strap is provided with the watch for added contrast.
In this new episode of the AP Talks podcast, Malaika Crawford, journalist and watch expert, François-Henry Bennahmias, CEO of Audemars Piguet and Raphaël Balestra, Heritage & Archives Manager talk about the Royal Oak Offshore collection and its unconventional journey that started 30 years ago.
An array of baguette-cut coloured gemstones provides a luxurious frame to the last two models in 18-carat pink or yellow gold.
The yellow gold timepiece is enriched with a royal blue dial and illuminated with a bezel set with a vibrant gradation of yellow, green and blue hues. These vivid colours are achieved thanks to tsavorites paired with yellow and blue sapphires. The blue interchangeable rubber strap, which echoes the dial colour, furthers the timepiece’s contrasting tones. The watch comes with an additional bright green rubber strap enhancing the tsavorites’ green tones.
The pink gold model comes to life with a rainbow-coloured bezel that illuminates the black Lady Tapisserie dial. The 32 baguette-cut stones, including rubies, tsavorites, topaz, tanzanites, amethysts and sapphires in shades of orange, yellow, green, blue, violet and pink, create a magical colour spectrum and an extensive play on the light.
All the gemstones adorning these Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronographs have been carefully selected to respond to the Manufacture’s highest criteria in terms of clarity, cut and colour. The quality of the stones’ cut is as important as their inherent quality and clarity for infinite radiance and sparkle.
