At the beginning of the year, replica Audemars Piguet became the top luxury watch brand that followed. The Swiss watchmaker decided to abandon one of its largest collections at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) luxury watch fair, which was only invited to participate in January, so it is difficult for all of us to remember every piece of it. detail.
Well, this week, the Luxe team welcomes the arrival of one of the most unusual and memorable pieces in the AP SIHH series-the Royal Oak “Battle” Offshore Referee. 26400SO.OO.A054CA.01, and think we will Use this as an opportunity to clear the spider web (the mandatory Halloween pun there) and refresh your memory!
First, let’s review all the important watch specifications. The mechanical design of Audemars Piguet and the predecessor of the Royal Oak Offshore “combat” is not far off. The internal operation remains basically unchanged, the movement 3126/3840 can be chosen at will, and can provide up to 50 hours of reliable power reserve. The Associated Press watchmaker also decided to match the camouflage uniform with a transparent case back, so that the wearer can get closer and appreciate the entire movement in more detail.
Adhering to the neutral theme, the “Grande Tapisserie” beige dial has a brown counter, a brown outer area and a brown sub-dial. The military-inspired design is different from other products in the AP Royal Oak series and had a great impact on the respected public during the SIHH earlier this year.
The dial uses traditional white gold hour markers and Royal Oak hands, as well as a pair of bold orange sub-dial hands. The stainless steel case is equipped with two stainless steel push rods, a screw-in crown and an AP-recognizable octagonal ceramic bezel, which has a dark green “khaki” color, which is almost black in some images.
All models of the Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph have an iconic shape. Except for Offshore Tourbillon’s tourbillon case size of 45 mm, the typical case size is 44 mm. The same is true for Royal Oak Offshore’s “Combat”. Its solid stainless steel case has a diameter of 44mm and a thickness of 14.5mm. This beast watch is designed to be water resistant up to 100 meters and is equipped with a thick “camouflage” rubber strap with a logo steel buckle. If you are not the biggest fan of camouflage fans, but like the other advantages of this watch, AP will provide an extra “khaki” rubber strap for modification.
Who is wearing the Royal Oak “battle” suit at sea?
“Sea Combat” was only opened to the public three months ago, but this did not stop heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua from wearing a camouflage watch at the March pre-match press conference to please the Midland Club fans. On many occasions, Audemars Piguet’s ambassador, Joshua, was put on a manly watch at public events and stadiums – proving that this work not only exudes manliness, but is also versatile.
Royal Oak Offshore replica may be one of the most masculine models. The sheer size and volume of its surface and ultra-durable performance make it ideal for avid athletes or those who just like to wear large watches. But now, with a new military inspiration, the Royal Oak “combat” offshore soldiers has risen to its own rank. There is only one most masculine and most feared person on earth, and there is only one of us. But the problem still exists… is it?
