Swiss high-end watch manufacturer fake Audemars Piguet is very pleased to announce the launch of the 43mm new Royal Oak Offshore series, of which 5 models are made of stainless steel, 18 carat rose gold or titanium. This is the first redesign of Royal Oak Offshore since the evolution of the 44mm series in the early 2000s. While retaining the essence of the original features of Royal Oak Offshore, the case and dial have been improved to provide the best aesthetic and ergonomic design. These Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore chronograph models also introduce the manufacturer’s latest integrated flyback chronograph Calibre 4401 in the Royal Oak Offshore series, which is designed for the most active adventures. Last but not least, the new Royal Oak Offshore 43 mm watch is equipped with Manufacture’s new interchangeable strap system, allowing the wearer to easily change the strap.
New ergonomic 43mm case
The new 43mm Royal Oak Offshore titanium, stainless steel or 18-carat rose gold, combines the distinctive features of the series with a more ergonomically refined design. The edges of the case have large polished chamfers, while the bezel, the crown with locking screws and the chronograph buttons are slightly curved to increase visual appeal. Except for the all-titanium watch models, the other four timepieces in the series all use ceramic bezels with a strong two-tone contrast. The anti-glare sapphire crystal bends from 6 o’clock to 12 o’clock, which perfectly fits the curvature of the bezel and completes the overall design. The case and bezel are decorated with hand-polished chamfers and the Manufacture brand trademark alternating with satin-brushed finishes, further highlighting the new aesthetics of the watch.
Sporty dial, refined decoration
The dial is decorated with Royal Oak Offshore’s “Méga Tapisserie” pattern, available in black, gray, taupe and blue tones, and has been newly designed to provide enhanced contrast and high-end decoration. The pyramids that make up the Tapisserie have been sharpened and connected to each other by a raised cross pattern, thereby increasing the depth of the dial. The squares at the top of the pyramid have been satin-finished to match the bold and refined aesthetics of the case. In order to achieve the perfect balance of movement and elegance, a lot of programming and a lot of prototypes must be made.
The chronograph timers have also been rearranged to improve readability: the minute timer is now at 9 o’clock and the hour timer is at 3 o’clock. In addition, the date window has been moved closer to the inner circle between 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock. The small second part is at 6 o’clock.
In addition, the perfect Fake Watches also displays the new Royal Oak Offshore logo, decorating all new models in the entire series. The first letter of the applied golden AP appears at 12 o’clock, and there is no long format signature.
The dial also uses more confident Royal Oak gold hands, adding a strong personality to the watch.
The latest integrated flyback chronograph
The new Royal Oak Offshore 43mm production line introduces the latest in-house integrated chronograph movement 4401 from the watch factory in the Royal Oak Offshore series. This self-winding chronograph movement is equipped with a column wheel and flyback function, which can restart the chronograph without first stopping or resetting the stopwatch.
The 4401 movement also has a vertical clutch system that prevents the hands from jumping when the chronograph is started or stopped, as well as a patented zero adjustment mechanism that ensures that each counter pointer is set to zero seamlessly.
The blackened 22-carat rose gold oscillating weight dedicated to the movement and the exquisite decorations, including “Côtes de Genève”, “characteristics” and round textures, can all be appreciated through the sapphire back cover. The case back also reveals parts that are normally invisible, such as the so-called “dance” of cylindrical gears and chronograph hammers.
With its automatic winding mechanism, 70-hour power reserve and 100m waterproof performance, Caliber 4401 becomes the perfect complement to Royal Oak Offshore.
Safe and efficient interchangeable belts
Royal Oak Offshore’s 43mm production line is equipped with Manufacture’s new interchangeable strap system. The interchangeability system has been directly integrated into the studs of the buckle and case, perfectly blending with the aesthetic specifications of the case.
The simplicity and efficiency of the new system allows customers to quickly click and release to replace the straps and buckles of new watches by themselves. When the watch is worn on the wrist, the double push system can also provide the best safety.
In addition, black, blue, gray and brown rubber straps and AP pin buckles decorated with different models give a new sports aesthetic.
Two additional beige or brown interchangeable calfskin straps and a black alligator strap are also available.
After activating the reset button, the hammer will hit the heart-shaped cam of the chronograph under the drive of the operating lever, thereby returning the chronograph wheel and hands to zero.
