Audemars Piguet introduced a redesigned Royal Oak Offshore for 2021, presented first time in a 43mm case. The watchmaker has always offered the Royal Oak Offshore in a 44mm case. The then younger designer Emmanuel Gueit designed the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore. However, it debuted with a 42mm case. While it was then a massive size, the watch acquired the moniker “The Beast”.
However, AP equipped the Royal Oak Offshore for the first-ever time with a chronograph and a ‘Therban’ rubber detailing. Nonetheless, the new AP Royal Oak Offshore of 2021 debuted in a new case diameter of 43mm. And it also houses the brand’s new integrated Calibre 4401 flyback chronograph. Let’s delve into the details more.
The new AP Royal Oak Offshore retains the same classic shape as its older siblings. Moreover, the watch also strongly resembles the original Gueit design. The significant upgrades that AP made to the new Royal Oak Offshore model include –
Well, the glare-proof sapphire crystal on the new Royal Oak Offshore 2021 curves from the 6 o’clock to 12-hour side. It fits in the bezel curvature and completes the overall watch design. However, the case and bezel further feature satin-brushed finishing and hand-polished chamfers.
Moreover, apart from the all-titanium model, the new Royal Oak Offshore watches sport a ceramic bezel, offering a dual-tone contrast.
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore of 2021 flaunts a newly designed ‘Mega Tapisserie’ patterned dial. It offers high-end finishing and more contrast. However, the dial colour options include grey, black, blue and taupe.
Moreover, AP has offered the dial a simpler one line applied gold “AP” logo. And the hands appear bolder and rugged.
Audemars Piguet equipped the new Royal Oak Offshore with the in-house Calibre 4401 that debuted in Code 11.59 chronograph. This integrated flyback column-wheel timepiece comes with a vertical clutch mechanism. Moreover, the Calibre 4401 movement is water-resistance to 100m and offers a power reserve of 70hours.
Finally, the new AP Royal Oak Offshore comes with a pliable rubber strap that sits comfortably on the wrist. However, the strap has a quick release-and-attach functionality. Undoubtedly, the new Royal Oak Offshore is a robust offering from AP in 2021, bearing the entire DNA of the original model.
