Audemars Piguet Celebrates the Royal Oak Offshore's 25th Anniversary with Three New Watches
Several new striking features to modernize the style.
To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Audemars Piguet‘s Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph, the luxury watchmaker is celebrating the timepiece’s history by producing a line of vibrant new takes on the item.
First up, the brand presents a re-release of the 1993 Offshore Chronograph, complete with stainless steel construction and a special blue “Petite Tapisserie” dial. For its next two creations, connoisseurs will be able to wear freshly-renovated versions of the Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Tourbillon; one is outfitted in steel, the other comes in 18K pink gold. Adding to the exclusivity, Audemars Piguet is limiting these new models to 50 pieces of each style.
For the inspiration behind these three new timepieces, AP looks to the timeless look of previous watches. Bringing the Offshore into the new age, the company’s talented craftsmen have created a redesigned, hand wound movement; it features 353 parts, 30 jewels, a power reserve of 173 hours and its dimensions are measured at 39.78 mm x 11.60 mm. An octagonal bezel with hexagonal screws also surrounds the dial, while the crown and pushpieces are ceramic.
You can take a look at the latest from Audemars Piguet’s 25th anniversary celebration of the Offshore above. Last month, AP revealed plans for the Royal Oak Frosted Gold 41mm watch.
