Audemars Piguet is launching a completely new version of their emblematic Royal Oak Offshore Diver, which now comes in a forged carbon case.
The watch was announced earlier this year, and these could be the first official images of the new divers’ watch. We’re still waiting for the official press release and full technical specifications, but the one thing I can say for certain at this point is that the new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver in forged carbon is going to be much lighter that the classic Royal Oak Offshore dive watch.
The reason for this lies in the innovative case material, and the famous Swiss brand has put a lot of effort to invest significantly in forged carbon. Forged Carbon is the registered brand of an aeronautical company in France, and it is obtained using a forging technology employed in aeronautics.
The first Audemars Piguet model featuring forged carbon was the Royal Oak Offshore Alinghi Team, launched in 2007. The model immediately stood out from the rest of the Royal Oak watches thanks to the obvious qualities of forged carbon. The material is very light and, at the same time, highly resistant to all kinds of mechanical shocks. It is soft and satiny to the touch and has a gorgeous marbled effect, which is unique to each watch since the carbon fibers are distributed randomly in the mold. When the material is compressed and forged, the fibers distribute in unpredictable way, making the final result rather exclusive.
This is the second model in the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver replica watch, and it boasts the same dimensions as the first one, ref 15703. According to the Blog Perpetuelle, the new dive watch has 42mm in diameter and it is 13.7mm thick. The inner mechanism is also the same – the AP Caliber 3120 automatic movement. It seems like the only major changes are reflected in the yellow accents on the dial, forged carbon for the case and ceramic for the bezel.
