They have proven time and again that there watches are the ones to beat, once in 1972 with the very first Royal Oak, which was the first luxury sport watch to hit the market, and again in 1993 when the company introduced the first Royal Oak Offshore which helped to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Royal Oak itself. Audemars Piguet has done it again, now to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Royal Oak Offshore, Audemars Piguet is releasing their new timepiece that is definitely upping the game in the watchmaking industry, this time with the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph 25th Anniversary piece. In this article, we are going to go a little more in depth about this unique designer watch, and what we can expect to see. Let’s get started.
Sporty Luxury Design
We have seen Audemars Piguet release many different luxurious sport watches over the years, as we eluded to before, and they have done it again with the Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph 25th Anniversary piece. It come built with a chunky case, which can either be purchased in stainless steel or 18 karat pink gold. The design aspect itself has given this watch an even edgier appeal. Complete with a black ceramic chronograph and screw locked crown, as well as a hollowed out look to the case, its giving off an aesthetic that is standing out from anything we have ever seen from the company before. Although, with all of these drastic changes and design details that we are seeing, one stays the same, and that is the octagonal shape that these Royal Oak watches are commonly known for. Finally, this new Royal Oak Offshore 25th Anniversary piece features a tourbillon that offers a ‘theatrical’ aspect to the watch, making it a mesmerizing display every time that you look at it. The movements alone that are featured on the dial of the watch are what make it so unique and interesting in the first place, and allow for a truly one of a kind look for any watch wearer and collector alike.
Skeletonized Approach In Design
When we look at the dial of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph 25th Anniversary piece, we see that there are many components of it that are skeletonized, making the watch have more layers and more intricacy altogether. The power is in the movement, which can be seen via the in house manufactured Calibre 2947 that is held together in the dial by eight bezel bolts, which are partially skeletonized as well on the bridges. This allows for the watch to have such an intricate and captivating movement that can entice any watch wearer.
Limited Edition Timepiece
As with many other commemorative timepieces that are released by various designers all over the world, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph 25th Anniversary timepiece has also been released with very limited supply. There are only fifty pieces of both varieties of the watch, fifty of the 18 karat pink gold and fifty of the stainless steel (one hundred pieces in total). Many watch wearers will find this aspect alone intriguing, although the watch itself does come along with a bit of a hefty price tag.
Of course, with such an intricate and crafted design, there will be some that find the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph 25th Anniversary timepiece a bit on the intimidating side, something that might seem overwhelming on certain levels. However, this is a unique watch that will definitely stand the test of time with its steampunk like design and skeletonized detail.
