AUDEMARS PIGUET – ROYAL OAK OFFSHORE CHRONOGRAPHE SUMMER EDITION
SUMMER TIME FOR THE ROYAL OAK
The Royal Oak Offshore collection has switched to summer time with a new sun-kissed model and all its signature features: a stylish and sporty design.
This summer saw Audemars Piguet unveil a new pair of limited edition watches to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the brand’s partner, Hôtel Byblos, in style: the Royal Oak Offshore Summer Edition. A model for women, alongside its mechanical counterpart for men, has launched in sun-kissed hues. The Brassus-based brand has focused heavily on art de vivre and joined forces with the legendary luxury hotel to put their passion and sophistication into this watch.
The men’s version has everything you could wish for: a self-winding mechanical movement at 21,600 vph, a 50-hour power reserve, a silver dial with the “Méga Tapisserie” pattern, two-tone silver and blue counters, applied markers and Royal Oak hands in luminescent rose gold and a silver chapter ring oozing the sporty chic look that the Royal Oak collection by Audemars Piguet is known for. The calibre fuels the chronograph, hour, minute, small seconds and date functions and also has a “balance wheel stop” system when setting the time, a spring with variable inertia blocks and a shuttle chronograph mechanism.
Three blue-rimmed counters stand out on the 44mm dial and give the watch a racy look. The white rubber bracelet and rose gold deployment clasp give the rose gold case an extra glow and also comes in blue to give the Royale Oak Offshore Summer Edition a real summer feel.
