Audemars Piguet launches 2021 “The Beast”: Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph

Audemars Piguet fake has revamped its iconic Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph, updating and perfecting the masculine model, while expanding its sports series with a new 43 mm case.

The chronos quintet (made of lightweight titanium, luxurious rose gold and durable stainless steel), which debuted this fall, is equipped with a new in-house movement. They are also equipped with an improved case and dial-this is Offshore’s first major redesign since the evolution of the 44mm series in the early 2000s. The quick click and release interchangeable strap system allows you to change the appearance as you like, enhancing Offshore with new and fashionable aspects.

Originally conceived as the 20th anniversary of the Royal Oak, the Royal Oak Offshore shocked the watch industry with its huge proportions and weight in 1993 and earned it the nickname of the beast. At the time, 42 mm was extremely large for a watch, and the offshore type paved the way for the XXL trend that later surpassed the industry.

Offshore is built for action and has attracted many black body admirers over the years, including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jay-Z, Shaquille O’Neal, LeBron James, Mickmere, Anthony Anderson, Don Chidell, Luke Bryan and Ed Sheeran.

In the past 30 years, Offshore has also undergone many iterations. For the highly complex chronograph with tourbillon, the diameter has been increased to 45 mm. For a more feminine design, the size has been reduced to 37 mm. Most series are divided into Available in 42mm and 44mm sizes. At 43 mm, these new chronographs use the Goldilocks method, hitting the best position in the middle.

Audemars Piguet CEO François-Henry Bennahmias said at the live broadcast of the series in March: “Because we have been working on these new designs, there will always be a word, that is ergonomics,” and pointed out our goal Is to have a model that fits comfortably on any size wrist.

“The new 43mm case is not an enhancement of what happened before, it is indeed something new and different,” added Michael Friedman, head of complications at the Associated Press. “Yes, it echoes the aesthetics of the Royal Oak offshore, but it brings something different: the elements have a certain curvature, and they are incredibly refined. In terms of ergonomics, this watch The design is very beautiful and can be worn on the wrist. The putter is different, the line is different, and the edge is different.”

Royal Oak Offshore fans will notice that the appearance of the dial is also different. The chronograph has been repositioned-minutes at 9 o’clock, hours at 3 o’clock, and small seconds at 6 o’clock. The date window is also closer to the inner bezel, between 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock.

Even the Royal Oak’s iconic grid-like “Méga Tapisserie” pattern has an enhanced 3D appearance in black, gray, light brown or blue tones. Compared with the previous model, the raised square shape is more defined, the grooves are deeper, and the raised cross-shaped elements connect them together and increase the depth. The satin finish echoes the new case code, and the streamlined application of the AP logo replaces the complete Audemars Piguet signature.

The things under these dials are even more tempting: the internal self-winding 4401 integrated flyback chronograph movement, first introduced in the Code 11.59 series. The term “flyback” means that you can restart the timing function instantly without stopping and resetting to zero. The vertical clutch system of the mechanism prevents the hands from jumping when the chronograph is started or stopped, and the patented reset mechanism ensures that the hands of the chronograph immediately return to zero when they are reset.

Most importantly, the new sapphire crystal caseback provides a window into the inner workings of these bold chronographs-a glimpse of the beauty hidden in the beast. replica watches china
