Audemars Piguet has revealed a new, entirely redesigned 43mm Royal Oak Offshore case size with a haute horlogerie limited-edition flying tourbillon flyback chronograph.

Presumably introduced to eventually replace the existing 42mm and 44mm cases entirely, the new ‘evolved’ 43mm case has been completely redesigned, here in titanium, with improved appearance and ergonomics in mind featuring wider beveled edges as well as a vertically curved bezel and sapphire crystal.

It also represents the first time a flying tourbillon has appeared in an Royal Oak Offshore. The Calibre 2967 adapts the existing Calibre 2952 that debuted in AP’s Code 11.59 collection late last year for the larger diameter of the Offshore, while also switching up the movement’s aesthetic from a crisp luxury geometry to an altogether sportier, more muscular feel.

The movement’s open-worked satin-brushed titanium bridges, which make up the watch’s open dial, are treated to a black PVD coating while sandblasted and polished raw titanium inserts present a high contrast look, not dissimilar to air intakes on a supercar.

While the Calibre 2967 matches its predecessor with 65 hours of power reserve the watch itself offers a more reassuring 100m of water resistance more inline with the Offshore’s sportier characteristics. The watch also features Audemars Piguet’s new quick change strap system, which is built directly into the watch’s iconic studs, and is supplied with a a black alligator strap and a black rubber alternative.

Just 100 individually numbered pieces are being produced and are available now, priced CHF 250,000 ($270,000 USD).

Elsewhere in watches, Jacob & Co. sets a twin, triple tourbillon with 84ct of diamonds and sapphires.
