SIHH2015: Audemars Piguet ‘Royal Oak Offshore’ Chronograph
Some say a man should never wear diamonds. Audemars Piguet says you should wear many, preferably 682 baguette-cut diamonds covering your Royal Oak Offshore.
Audemars Piguet is blessed with Gerald Gentas design when it comes to the Royal Oak and his great design heritage is most of time carefully respected with watches mostly made in steel and sometimes precious metals like gold and platinum. This Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph is however covered in diamonds in different carat and cuts. The case is 18-carat white gold case and the dial, of course, in 18-carat white gold as well.
Did I mention the bracelet is covered in diamonds as well? Well if you don’t fancy that the watch also comes on a black alligator strap. The size is 42 mm wide and 15,4 mm thick which makes it a bit smaller than your average Royal Oak Offshore. Inside ticks the calibre 3126 and this Ref. 26473BC.ZZ.8043BC.01 is not limited edition but production is strictly limited to the most exclusive Audemars Piguet retailers.
