  • Catalogue Essay

    Officially released in 2012, The Royal Oak Offshore Diver has gradually become an iconic and acclaimed timepiece in the realm of Audemars Piguet sports watches.

    The 42mm diameter case, forged in matt black ceramic renders the timepiece extremely stealthy and comfortable to wear. For the first time in the Diver's collection, Audemars Piguet has opted for an open caseback, finally revealing the automatic in-house caliber 3120 with its beautifully finished 22ct gold rotor.

    The movement boasts a 60-hour power reserve and the timepiece itself has a water resistance depth rating of 300m. The black ceramic pusher at 10 o'clock controls the inner rotating aluminum bezel, allowing divers to record with precision and ease the time elapsed during their immersions. Furthermore a 15-minute scale has been painted orange, immediately standing out and easing legibility.

    The dial, being in harmony with the ceramic case is also black coloured and features the sporty “Méga Tapisserie” pattern with white gold applied hour-markers.

    Overall, this ceramic Diver truly encapsulated the concepts of stealth, sportiness, and masculinity with an "all-black" look with orange accents on the inner rotating bezel and minutes hands. In excellent condition the timepiece is a definite must have for those "stealthy" collectors out there.
