You are all familiar with the Replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver, a piece that has been in the ROO collection since 2010 designed for action men who want a robust companion for their extreme sports/lifestyle.
Nicknamed “The Beast”, this heavyweight contender bore the iconic design elements of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replica – the raised octagonal bezel and exposed screws, the guilloché dial, the integrated bracelet, and the overall industrial design mood – but was rigged with novelties.
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver underwent a subtle facelift in 2015 although the base remains practically unaltered with Best Swiss Audemars Piguet 42mm case, mega tapisserie pattern on the dial, 300m water-resistance, internal bezel activated by the pusher at 10 o’clock and in-house automatic calibre 3120.
From the white 2015 model with blue markings to the vibrant acid colours of the 2017 divers, the ROO keeps apace of trends. True to its original mission to attract a younger crowd, the Audemars Piguet Replica plays with fashionable colours, which is not to say it is a ‘fashion’ watch, not by any means.
