  • Catalogue Essay

    First making its way into the scene, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver was first released in SIHH 2010 being one of the hottest topics around town. A major success with the trend for exclusive sports watches at the time, the firm released several variants of the acclaimed model thereafter. Being the first ever ISO certified diver's wristwatch manufactured by Audemars Piguet with up to 300 meters of water resistance. In 2014, the firm released arguably the most prized and attractive variant of the Royal Oak Offshore Diver cased in a vivacious white ceramic case with a matching white mega tappiserie dial. Measuring 42mm in diameter, it also featured a sapphire caseback, a feature that was not seen before in the model. Audemars Piguet used a material called white Super Ceramic, which comes in at 1850 Vickers, more than 500 Vickers harder than the black ceramic used for last year's model. This rare variant was exclusive only to Audemars Piguet boutiques and is prized among collectors of the firm with extremely high demands in the market.

    Offered with its original accessories, the sporty magnet at hand is certainly a handsome timepiece, great for either land-locked activities or underwater excursions in utmost style.
