Audemars Piguet is set to make a splash at this year’s Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), starting on Monday in Geneva, Switzerland, with its new Royal Oak Offshore chronographs.
This year will be the last appearance at SIHH for the Swiss luxury watchmaker, which will be leaving the trade fair starting in 2020 – and it’s ending its run with a bang.
The heritage brand revealed three new Royal Oak Offshore chronographs this year – all dressed in camouflage.
The Royal Oak Offshore collection has been audacious in its design and use of materials, since the collection was first born.
The new 44-millimetre (1.73-inch) timepieces feature a ceramic bezel, pushpieces and screw-locked crown, a Mega Tapisserie dial and rubber traps.
On the dial are hours, minutes and small seconds counters at six o’clock, nine o’clock and 12 o’clock, respectively. A date window can be found at three o’clock.
Three versions are offered: brown, blue and green.
The blue and green novelties are made with stainless steel, while the brown model comes in a pink-gold case – a first for Audemars Piguet.
All three timepieces are powered by the self-winding manufacture calibre 3126/3840, which comes with 50 hours of power reserve. Additional straps are also offered in blue, khaki green and brown.
