Audemars Piguet has reworked a huge swathe of its Royal Oak Offshore collection, dropping eleven new models at once.

The first five watches are presented in a new 43mm case. The new design sees wider polished chamfers on the case, while the black ceramic pushers and crown follow a curved line.

Presented in titanium, pink gold and stainless steel, the new 43mm design houses AP’s latest flyback chronograph movement, Calibre 4401, with 70-hour power reserve and 100m of water resistance. Prices start from £33,000 GBP (approximately $45,500 USD).

The original Royal Oak Offshore from 1993 has been reworked too, with three new 42mm references in stainless steel and, for the first time with a petit tapisserie dial, a pink gold reference with blue rubber crown and pushers, while the titanium model uses black rubber.

Audemars has reconfigured the dial, ensuring that each sub dial is equidistant from the centre and swapping around the chronograph hour sub dial, which now sits at the 12 o’clock, and the small seconds, which sits at the six o’clock. Prices start from £36,300 GBP (approximately $50,000 USD).

Putting color centre stage, two new 42mm Royal Oak Offshore automatic flyback chronographs are presented in stainless steel and titanium, with light blue and khaki dials and rubber straps respectively, using the Offshore’s Méga Tapisserie, the Offshore’s scaled up version of the Petit Tapisserie pattern used for Royal Oak dials. Both models are available exclusively from Audemars Piguet boutiques, priced £29,900 GBP (approximately $41,200 USD).

The final addition is a new 18k white gold limited edition Royal Oak Offshore Diver with black ceramic bezel and crowns. The 42mm watch is water resistant to 300 meters and powered by the brand’s latest manufacture automatic, the Calibre 4308, which offers a 60-hour power reserve and instant-jump date change.

A ratcheted unidirectional inner rotating bezel features a diving minutes scale and is adjusted by a second crown at the 10 o’clock. The watch gets a black “Méga Tapisserie” dial with beige highlights and white gold hands and markers. Applied gold AP initials are used to sign the dial at the 12 o’clock.

New multi-faceted hour markers make their debut, with two distinct sizes for enhanced legibility, while a color-matched date window sits at the three o’clock. The Royal Oak Offshore Diver is limited to 300 pieces and supplied with both black rubber and beige calfskin straps costing £52,800 GBP (approximately $72,800 USD).
