Audemars Piguet unveils a trio of new Royal Oak Offshore Chronographs to celebrate its 25th anniversary

Leading up to the 25th anniversary of the Royal Oak Offshore next year, Swiss haute horologist Audemars Piguet previews three new versions of the iconic luxury sports watch for pre-SIHH: a re-edition of the original Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph, and two brand new Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronographs.

Since its introduction in 1993, the Royal Oak Offshore has evolved with over 120 references in various materials like stainless steel, titanium, gold and platinum. The commemorative re-edition piece is almost an exact carbon copy of the original, featuring a 42mm stainless steel case with blue rubber push pieces. On its blue dial, the “Petite Tapisserie” motif and classic 6-9-12 sub-dial configuration is revisited.

To add further prominence to the occasion, Audemars Piguet reveals a special series of Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronographs, limited to 50 pieces each in stainless steel or pink gold. Both models break the rules with their extreme dial architecture, which is openworked to showcase an entirely redesigned movement developed exclusively for the 25th anniversary of the Royal Oak Offshore. More significantly, the signature octagonal bezel has been carved to highlight the angular points of the eight hexagonal screws. Like most contemporary models, the crown and push pieces are crafted in ceramic instead of metal or rubber.

It seems that after 25 years, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore still retains its cutting-edge creative dimensions.
