The more sculpted and reﬁned hour-markers lend an additional technical Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Replica Watch.Every dial is decorated with the Royal Oak Offshore’s distinctive, waffle-like ‘Méga Tapisserie’ pattern. Moreover, the new facetted hands with polished decorative ﬁllets surrounding the hour markers, counters and date window, together with the use of a luminescent coating, make the dial more radiant and ensure enhanced readability of the time indications.
Made in the Vallée de Joux by the last historical watchmaking house owned by the founding families, it respects all the criteria of Haute Horlogerie, its movements hand-decorated and hand-assembled – even in the models without sapphire-crystal casebacks.Beneath that groundbreaking exterior, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Replica has remained mechanically traditional, as one would expect from a ‘Maison’ with as many years of savoir-faire as Audemars Piguet.
The Audemars Piguet Replica design – so perfect it has barely changed in two decades – echoes that of the virile, iconic Royal Oak, whose octagonal, stainless-steel facets so shook up the peaceful scene of classic, round, gold watches. However, the Royal Oak Offshore was even sturdier, sportier and more masculine. When it was ﬁrst introduced in 1993, no one would have entertained the idea of a 42 mm watch in the early Nineties! But it proved to be a pioneer – it singlehandedly set the trend for uncompromising, oversized watches that has continued ever since.
