Audemars Piguet has just unveiled a reissue of its famous Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore replica watch, imagined twenty-five years ago by designer Emmanuel Gueit, which therefore takes up the original design of this piece which has since established itself as one icons of the contemporary sports watch.
Twenty-five years ago, Audemars Piguet wanted to offer its customers an ultra sporty and very masculine version of its Royal Oak… Born from the pencil line of Emmanuel Gueit, a genius watch designer to whom we also owe the latest Cellini from Rolex, this watch quickly established itself as a must in contemporary watchmaking.
Keep in mind that at the time, this 100-meter waterproof chrono was “huge” with its 42mm diameter, massive look and thick steel strap. There was absolutely nothing quite like it on the market and this watch was downright “disruptive” ahead of its time.
A risky bet for the Manufacture in Le Brassus, but a successful bet, since this model has met with commercial success that has never wavered and which has helped – in large part – to propel the brand to where it is today.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore replica watch, original model from 1993.To celebrate these twenty-five years, AP has just unveiled a re-edition in steel with a blue dial which takes up the original design of this iconic chronograph which has since seen more than 120 versions in steel, titanium, gold or even platinum.
A relaunch that should strengthen the power of seduction of the very first model, which has now become a classic of vintage watches.
Launched in 1993, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore was actually a strong and divisive watch, so much in fact that Gerald Genta, who created the first Noble Oak, supposedly penetrated the Audemars Piguet booth if it was introduced at Basel and shouted that his Royal Oak “had been completely damaged.” Later on, the very first Royal Oak Overseas Diver was introduced in 2010, and yes it was Audemars Piguet’s initial ISO-licensed plunge watch. Given that its inception, it provides undergone several iterations, but very last year’s was one of the most extreme, since it was unveiled in a big selection of brilliant, “funky” shades. It’s pretty clear that Audemars Piguet is perfectly aware these watches will almost certainly be polarizing, with individuals asking, “Why would any person pay out $20k for a vibrant orange AP diver?” The answer will be simple—because they like it, think it is entertaining, and can afford to pay for it. Audemars Piguet know there is a robust customer base, and clean, new solutions keep these coming back again.(Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore replica watch)
While previous year’s new additions were bright—almost neon—this year’s new variants are milder. The 4 new hues joining the assortment are turquoise light blue, purple, beige, and khaki. Even though they are not dreary in whatever way, they’re much more subdued, particularly when compared with last year’s emits.
The principle components from the Royal Oak Offshore Diver remain unchanged. The stainless steel case is 42mm broad and 14.1mm. On the octagonal bezel are revealed octagonal anchoring screws crafted from white-colored golden. The two main sizeable rubberized-clad screw-down crowns—one at 3 o’clock and another at 10 o’clock. The former is perfect for altering enough time and time, while the latter is perfect for modifying the inner dive bezel. All four types have secure coordinating silicone bands with stainless-steel pin buckles. As befits a true plunge watch, water opposition is 300m.
Like other Royal Oak Offshore Diver watches, these watches are beefy and muscular, and they wear large on the wrist. If that’s not enough, the bright colors will certainly cause surrounding people to take notice. If you want a watch that is going to get noticed, I can think of few watches that do a better job standing out so prominently. That being said, the actual construction of the watch is also superb. The case is especially well made, with clean and sharp lines through and through, alternate polishes on the surfaces, and perfectly beveled edges on the bezel and on the sides of the case. Despite this being a big watch, the exquisite finishing gives the Royal Oak Offshore Diver a diaphanous air that is often missing in many dive watches.
The dial is no much less outstanding. The colors are abundant and stunning, and although the ‘Mega Tapisserie’ design isn’t as sensitive the because the ‘Petite Tapisserie’ pattern found on the Ref. 15202 Noble Oak Jumbo, it is actually still stunning to behold. To make sure legibility whilst scuba diving, the Royal Oak Offshore Diver has thicker hour or so and minute palms and hour markers, all constructed from white colored precious metal and full of luminescent materials. The moments palm, also constructed from white-colored gold, has a fat lollipop idea making it feasible for divers to ascertain if their watches are still working.
The spinning inner bezel is designated with contrasting shades to really make it readable. The beige design offers the first 15 minutes as well as the remaining tens of moments in azure, even though the turquoise light blue, purple, and khaki designs have bright white markings. There is another colour-coordinated time windows at 3 o’clock by using a magnifier window. I actually enjoy day tires with shades that complement the dial, as they’re more beneficial and subtle. In the four of those, the turquoise glowing blue product is the most popular, with crimson as being a shut next. The beige and khaki types are extremely subdued for my liking.
These watches all have see-through sapphire casebacks that disclose the in-home personal-winding caliber 3120. It is easily one of the better finished actions in almost any jump watch. The 1st component that grabs your vision is the sizeable 22k golden rotor that features the family crests in the Audemars and Piguet families. Peer further and you’ll get beveled bridges with expertly used Côtes de Genève in addition to a nicely designed equilibrium bridge under which is situated a big harmony tire. The grade 3120 beats at 3Hz and it has an electrical power reserve of 60 several hours.

Last December during Art Basel 2014, I had a chance to meet and take some photographs of Serena Williams. She was visiting the Audemars Piguet VIP booth at the show, and is a newer ambassador of the brand. What struck me then was how passionate and into watches she seemed. With her recent win at the Australian Open, her 19th grand slam single title, Serena Williams continues her assaults at the record books and further cementing her place as the most dominant player in the past two decades and making a case, arguably, to be considered the best who has ever lived.
What was apparent to any watch lover during Serena Williams’ visit to the Audemars Piguet booth, was how much she already knew and yet still wanted to know more about watches. She spent what was easily 30 to 45 minutes chatting intensely with the staff, and in particular the watchmaker that Audemars Piguet had on staff with them, discussing the Royal Oak that he was servicing. She seemed genuinely interested in his explanations of the various parts of the caliber 2120 movement that he was taking apart.
While Serena Williams has been an Audemars Piguet hot sale for Christmas Day ambassador for a little more than a year now, it seems that this win has also strengthened the partnership. Specifically, she is now the new face for the brand’s most successful modern model: the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore. During the win in Melbourne, you could easily see her sporting the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph replica 2017 while playing. This is similar to the watch she was shown at Art Basel, and as could be seen from her eyes, that she was falling in love with. Prior to this model, she usually could be seen wearing a more classy and dressy Audemars Piguet Millenary in rose gold as well as an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak also in rose gold and one with a diamond encrusted bezel.
Serena Williams wearing the light Royal Oak Offshore Carbon during her matches will achieve the same level of publicity that Raphael Nadal and Bubba Watson do for Richard Mille. And one should not be surprised that Audemars Piguet would already know and have the experience in creating a watch worthy of a champion like Serena Williams and of the abuse to the movement that it is sure to endure. After all, Richard Mille’s movements are all sourced by Renaud et Papi, a wholly owned subsidiary, movement designer, maker, and part of Audemars Piguet since 1992.
Finally, watch-nerding aside, what Serena Williams has and continues to achieve is nothing short of extraordinary for the game of tennis, for women tennis, and for minorities in general. Here’s a tremendous talent who with hard work, sheer strength of faith, and her strong family, has grown out of one of the most impoverish cities in the United States to now reach the top of the tennis world and dominate like we have never seen before. And importantly, doing this with the humility and style of a true champion. She’s a role model, a rock star amongst her peers, a stylish athlete, and also a watch geek.
I, for one, cannot wait to see her break the all time single record in the open era of 22 grand slam titles, passing the great Stefi Graf, and be alone at the very top of the tennis world – with her lucky Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshoreon her wrist, of course.
