Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver ‘Funky Colour Edition’ Replica Watch Review


At SIHH 2017, Swiss Audemars Piguet celebrated color – which is clearly the focus for these versions of the popular rteplica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver 15710ST. The independent brand’s offerings are light on novelty but rich in hue, and known as the “Funky Colour Editions.” As such, the company is likely doing what is smart this year as they continue to navigate uncertain economic waters where pouring R&D money into totally new products can be seen as a bit unwise. Despite understanding this fact of necessary prudence, it makes being a watch blogger tough since we are always hungry for annual “newness.” With that said, Audemars Piguet continues to remind myself and colleagues that our desire for “all things Royal Oak” is by no means a new feeling.

Not that any of these watches are inexpensive, but if you are going to opt for a sporty timepiece in mostly electric green, my suspicion is that spending circa $20,000 feels a bit more appropriate for something that isn’t going to be a daily wear as compared to circa $300,000 for a pure collector’s piece. Most people will likely err on the more conservative side and opt for the same watches in more “classic” colors offered by Audemars Piguet. Then again, if you live a lifestyle where you can pull-off one of these colorful Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Divers as your daily wear, then more power to you.
Audemars-Piguet-Royal-Oak-Offshore-Divers-aBlogtoWatch-08I was further inspired by Audemars Piguet and the Royal Oak Offshore Diver Chronograph when thinking about my recent article on things I’d like to see more of and less of from the watch industry in 2017 and discussing my hope for more bold colors in watches by major brands. It looks like Audemars Piguet shares my enthusiasm. There are five “vibrant” Funky Colour Edition styles of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver to choose from this year including the reference 15710ST.OO.A027CA.01 in dark blue, 15710ST.OO.A070CA.01 in bright orange, 15710ST.OO.A051CA.01 in acid yellow, 15710ST.OO.A038CA.01 in lime green, and the 15710ST.OO.A010CA.01 in white.

The dials are what you’d expect, save for the new colors. The Mega Tapisserie face is fitted with 18k white gold bold hour markers and very legible matching hands. The white and blue dials are likely to be the most calming to look at over long periods of time, while the green, orange, and yellow ones might be prone to causing “funky headaches” if you aren’t in the right mood to glance at such bold colors all the time.

Inside the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver is the Audemars Piguet caliber 3120 automatic movement. It operates at 3Hz (21,600bph) with a power reserve of 60 hours. These always have a lovely degree of finishing and decoration, and Audemars Piguet has maintained the 300m water-resistance while offering a sapphire crystal display caseback with a view of the movement and engraved 22k gold rotor.

If you are an Audemars Piguet cheap replica watches fan and already have a few conservatively-colored Audemars Piguet models in your collection then adding one of these Funky Colour Editions is likely what Audemars Piguet feels you might want to do. The brand’s current strategy is clearly focused on the popularity of the Royal Oak, and part of that means selling more models to existing customers.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15400SR Two-Tone Replica Watch


Two-tone watches have historically come with a certain stigma attached: just think about those hoards of old Datejusts on loosey-goosey bracelets dangling from the wrists of retirees in Florida rest homes! Audemars Piguet is taking a gamble by releasing a two-tone model in their core sports luxury collection, which is generally targeting a younger demographic. This is a bold move for AP, and one that, in my opinion, reflects a larger movement at play within the industry. More on that later. For now, on to the basics:

The new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Two-Tone (Reference 15400SR.00.1229SR.01) is based in the same angular 41mm Audemars Piguet Royal Oak replica watch case as its steel brethren. It has an overall thickness of 9.8mm. As noted above, the case material is steel and gold, but unlike some earlier two-tone Royal Oak models, this one utilizes pink gold in lieu of yellow on the crown, bracelet center links, and characteristic “porthole” bezel. The white dial features the traditional Grand Tapisserie patterning associated with the Royal Oak model since its inception, as well as pink gold hour hour markers and hands. The watch is currently only offered with a traditional integrated bracelet, not a leather strap.

Audemars-Piguet-Royal-Oak-Two-Tone-15400SR-12The movement is AP’s Calibre 3120 self-winding automatic, with a frequency of 3hz and a power reserve of 60 hours. This calibre is built entirely in-house and is very much a workhorse for their Royal Oak collection, powering three-hand models with center seconds and an instantaneously jumping date function, displayed here, as on other 15400 models, at the three o’clock position.

Since the Reference 15400 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak isn’t new, and has been covered in-depth previously, the question of this model’s wearability comes down entirely to the aesthetics of the two-tone layout. As I mentioned earlier, two-tone watches have a stigma attached to them, and Audemars Piguet’s gamble in bringing one back to their most recognizable collection is worthy of note.

It might not be fashionable quite yet – hell, I’ll bet there’s a fair amount of you reading this right now that doubt it ever will be. Well, I was once one of those guys, and whether its maturation of taste or simply getting old, my stance has about-faced. I think two-tone is coming back to the timepiece market as part of this shift of values, and I think hot sale replica Audemars Piguet watch is taking point. When done well, two-tone can be a thing of beauty. And of balls. And AP has more balls than most.
