The Black Dial Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver Replica Watch adheres to the code of the diver’s watch: keep it simple, clear, and highly legible in all conditions. The sapphire crystal is glareproofed. The simple, streamlined, white gold-applied hour indices are luminous. As are the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak hour and minute hands. The numerals that represent the diving scale and zone on the inner rotating bezel can’t be missed. They start at 15 and finish at 60. There’s a magnified date window at 3 o’clock. Not to the degree achieved by the iconic Rolex Cyclops lens, but nice and visible nonetheless. You could say it transcends classification. But after all, the Royal Oak Offshore, when it originally debuted in 1992, was meant to attract a younger, more dynamic kind of buyer to the brand. And it’s largely credited with sparking the trend for oversized watches.
Few watches manage to marry timeless design with a futuristic look and feel but this one pulls it off admirably. The famous Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver Replica Watch hexagonal diver’s helmet case coupled with the glossy black 3D tapisserie dial is a stroke of genius.Technically, it falls into the category of luxury dive watch but it would be criminal not to show this off in a boardroom or even at a certain kind of black tie event. Music or film awards ceremony perhaps.
The Royal Oak Offshore is meant to defy convention. That was always the design brief. So it’s rather nice to see the philosophy in action, even in small ways. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver 15703ST.OO.A002CA.01 has a rather unusual feature: one of the black rubber-clad crowns is positioned at 10 o’clock. Not the most ground-breaking feature I’ll grant you but not something you usually see.
The Royal Oak and the Royal Oak Offshore both have an army of well-heeled fans. The steel case, octagonal bezel and tapisserie dial are all iconic. It’s a truth universally acknowledged that if you own an Audemars Piguet watch, you’ve arrived. This is a brand that’s appeared in films such as End of Days, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, and Entourage. A talking point if ever there was one, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Replica Watch 15703ST.OO.A002CA.01 has a particularly arresting black dial that draws the eye irresistibly.
But first and foremost, it is a dive watch. So it’s waterproof to 300 m. It has a stainless steel case and a black rubber strap. It’s nice and big but not Audemars Piguet Replica Watch. This particular watch has a 42 mm case diameter. It’s highly practical, despite the rather ostentatious patterning on the dial. TV series too, like Mr. Robot. Bill Murray is a fan. As is Thierry Henry. Lionel Messi and Serena Williams have both been brand ambassadors. Jay-Z has his very own 10th anniversary piece. John Legend, Meryl Streep, Hugh Jackman and Scarlett Johansson have all signed Audemars Piguet watches to help raise money for charity. When you acquire a timepiece from this brand, you’re not just buying the watch, you’re joining one of the most exclusive clubs in the world. That’s what you buy into.
