Audemars Piguet SIHH preview: Royal Oak Offshore Chronographs in camouflage colours

Audemars Piguet reveals three pre-SIHH Royal Oak Offshore chronographs.

As the Audemars Piguet Dream Team celebrated the end of the Golf season in Dubai, the Manufacture announced the coming year with a glimpse at its 2019 Royal Oak Offshore collection. This included a preview of three new Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronographs in camouflage colours to be officially launched at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in January 2019.

Since its first launch the Royal Oak Offshore has always been associated with new materials. The tradition continues this year with these new 44mm chronographs, water resistant to 100 meters,  which combine ceramic bezel, push-pieces and screw-locked crown, Méga-Tapisserie dial and robust rubber straps. While the blue and green ceramic models feature a stainless steel case, the brown ceramic model – a first for Audemars Piguet – has a pink gold case. Harder than steel, ceramic withstands high temperatures, thermal shock, scratches  and…the passing years! Colouring ceramic requires a complex research stage to find the right pigments, as well as a long and delicate manufacturing process.

The timepieces house the selfwinding Manufacture calibre 3126/3840, beating at 21,600  vph and offering a 50–hour power reserve.

They are fitted with a “Camouflage” rubber strap with stainless steel pin buckle. Additional rubber straps in blue, khaki green and brown are available.
