Audemars Piguet introduces five new 37 mm Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore watches, including a black ceramic version of its Music Edition and four new Chronograph models.
Among the new timepieces presented by the esteemed Swiss watchmaker, the black ceramic Music Edition stands out, paying homage to the brand’s longstanding collaborative relationship with artists and the music world.
The timepiece features a black ceramic case, a Tapisserie dial inspired by an equalizer, and the self-winding Calibre 5909 movement. As an extension of the collection launched in 2022, the ceramic black design elements create a fresh aesthetic, illuminating the dial to create a contemporary and vibrant appearance. Other details include a screw-locked crown, complemented by titanium accents, including knurled-textured studs, fader-inspired crown guards and a pin buckle on the black rubber strap.
Accompanying the Music Edition, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore watches unveiled four 37 mm Selfwinding Chronograph models, designed to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Royal Oak Offshore collection. These timepieces feature bezels adorned with either brilliant-cut diamonds or colorful baguette-cut gemstones, expressing both sportiness and glamour. The models are available in a choice of 18-carat pink gold, yellow gold, or stainless steel cases.
The dial of the 37 mm Selfwinding Chronograph models has undergone a design evolution, featuring a new Lady Tapisserie motif with slightly wider truncated pyramids and more prominent hour markers for an updated look. Customization of the watches includes the choice between gem-set bezels in brilliant-cut diamonds or a vibrant gradation of baguette-cut gemstones. A variety of dials are also offered, including light blue, royal blue, black and salmon.
All models in the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore watches collection come with Audemars Piguet’s interchangeable strap system, allowing for customization and versatility. The diamond-set models are accompanied by a pin buckle, while the baguette-set versions feature an AP folding clasp. Each of the timepieces is powered by the self-winding Calibre 2385 movement, which displays hours, minutes, small seconds, date and also precise chronograph functions.
The black ceramic Music Edition is limited to 250 pieces, while the Chronograph supply has not been specified by Audemars Piguet at the time of writing. Those interested in purchasing should place an inquiry with their authorized dealer. For more details, visit the brand’s official website.
In the 30th anniversary year of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore, we’re treated to a wide variety of new models. With the latest drop, the brand focuses on the 37mm Royal Oak Offshore, predominantly targeting ladies. But we know some gentlemen with smaller wrists also prefer wearing a 37mm Royal Oak. Whether that will also be the case with these blingy new models with diamond and gemstone-set bezels remains to be seen. There is also a new 37mm addition to the Royal Oak Offshore Music Editions. The year 2023 turns out to be quite a colorful one for the Royal Oak Offshore.
In the last year of Audemars Piguet CEO François-Henry Bennahmias, the brand puts out a wild variety of colorful Royal Oak Offshore releases. They are quite a step away from the ultra-technical Royal Oak Offshore aesthetic of “The Beast” that introduced the line. Audemars Piguet adds five new 37mm Royal Oak Offshore chronographs to its collection in the latest drop. The five colorful models feature diamond and gemstone set bezels and combine them with the sporty aesthetic of the Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph. It’s summer, and Audemars Piguet celebrates it in typical AP style.
