This year, the world renowned Swiss Haute Horology brand Audemars Piguet has presented a set of six all-new watches in its Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph collection, which features some contemporary design updates for 2014. The new family of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronographs maintains the case diameter of 42 mm – considered enormous when the Offshore, the more “masculine” successor to the original, smaller Royal Oak watch, was launched in 1993 – but adds some modern aesthetic touches for today’s luxury-sport-watch aficionado.
It is characterized by larger-than-life proportions, high-tech materials and components engineered to ensure protection from magnetic waves, as well as by its distinctive “Mega Tapisserie” motif. Each have ceramic crown and chronograph pushers with chronograph function and sub-dials and a date window at 3 o’clock. They also feature a Tachymeter around the outer dial. Three of the watches have ‘hornback’ alligator straps, one has a regular alligator strap, one has a rose gold strap and one has a blue rubber strap.
New Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronographs, will be available at retail in June.
