Two brand new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronographs

Audemars Piguet is introducing two new Royal Oak Offshore models housed in a 42 mm case in either steel or titanium. The watches have a dial with a “Méga Tapisserie” motif and appear on rubber straps. However, with the interchangeable strap system, these can be replaced easily and quickly. Last but not least, the in-house calibre 4404 works inside, offering a column-wheel chronograph with flyback function. The two models are available now exclusively in the brand’s boutiques.

The Royal Oak Offshore 42 with steel or titanium case

The two chronographs appear in two different cases. One variant is housed in a stainless steel case and has a blue dial. The green variant, on the other hand, has a titanium case. However, the dimensions of 42 mm in diameter and 15.2 mm in height are the same. The pushers and screw-down crown have black rubber. On the back of the case, the sapphire crystal case back allows a view of the mechanics inside. In addition, both watches are water-resistant to 10 bar or 100 metres.

Dial with “Méga Tapisserie” motif

The Royal Oak Offshore 42 mm bears a dial with a “Méga Tapisserie” motif that appears in either blue or khaki. Above it are three counters in silver with black numerals or in black with orange numerals. At 12 o’clock, the hours are counted, while at 9 o’clock is a 30-minute totaliser. Below that, at 6 o’clock, the watchmakers place a small seconds. The time is indicated by Arabic numerals and Royal Oak hands of white gold with luminous coating. Last but not least are the applied AP initials and the date window with magnifying glass at 3 o’clock.

The Royal Oak Offshore and the Calibre 4404

The two new Royal Oak Offshore are powered by the manufacture calibre 4404. The movement consists of 433 individual parts and offers an integrated chronograph. The latter uses a column wheel together with a vertical clutch, which enables instantaneous starting. In addition, the time measurement can be restarted immediately with the flyback function. A 22-carat rose gold rotor automatically winds the barrel to a power reserve of 70 hours. Through the sapphire crystal case back, the movement also catches the eye with its Geneva stripes, satin finishes and hand-polished edges.

The watches also have the in-house quick-change system for the wristbands. By pressing the two pushers on the case bridge, the strap can be removed quickly and easily. The version with a blue dial comes on a blue rubber strap with a textured surface and an AP buckle. The green dial, on the other hand, comes with a textured khaki green rubber strap. In addition, the manufacture includes a strap made of black calfskin with both watches.

Price & Availability of the Royal Oak Offshore 42 mm

The two variants of the new Royal Oak Offshore 42 mm are now available exclusively from Audemars Piguet boutiques worldwide. The steel-cased watch, just like the titanium variant, costs 32,700 euros.
