Audemars Piguet’s New Trio

Exploring the colourful and sporty appeal of this Royal Oak update.

By Terry Christodoulou 30/06/2020

Chunky, colourful and ceramic – the new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph has been gifted an engaging refresh.

Bringing together titanium, pink gold, rubber and black ceramic – the newcomer is all about the case, with AP flaunting its technical abilities in the decorating department. Every surface is treated with a complex combination of brushed and polished finishes. Touches of microblasting appear throughout – incredibly impressive on a ceramic casing.

Swathed in new colours – green, blue and a combination of 18-carat pink gold layered over a smoky grey – here the poppy bezels sit atop black ceramic middle cases, finished to AP’s fastidious standards. Further details, such as pusher crown guards of titanium on the green and blue, and pink gold on the coordinating piece, also elevate the revitalisation.

While accustomed to chunky pieces from Le Brassus, at 44mm this Royal Oak lands on the beefier side of the sale. All three versions feature sapphire crystal casebacks and colour-matched, textured rubber straps with titanium pin buckle – furthering the overall sporty appeal. They come powered by AP’s selfwinding manufacture calibre 3126/3840, with 50 hours power reserve and 100 metres water resistance.

Available in boutiques, with green and blue versions priced at approx. $50,900, while the pink gold will set you back $62,500.
