Pre-SIHH 2019: Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Ceramic

by Deployant News Team on December 7, 2018

Audemars Piguet announces four new colourways to their Royal Oak Offshore collection ahead of SIHH 2019. The new models are three new three new Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronographs in camouflage colours. The colours look stunning in the press photographs, and we look forward to seeing and photographing them live in SIHH.

 

Since its first launch, the Royal Oak Offshore has always been associated with new materials. The tradition continues this year with these new 44mm chronographs, which combine ceramic bezel, pushpieces and screw-locked crown, Méga-Tapisserie dial and robust rubber straps.

 

 

The new colours are Blue and Green in a stainless steel case. And Brown in a pink gold case.

 

Harder than steel, ceramic withstands high temperatures, thermal shock, scratches and … the passing years! Colouring ceramic requires a complex research stage to find the right pigments, as well as a long and delicate manufacturing process.

 

According to Audemars Piguet, their new 2019 collection promises many more surprises. Stay tuned.

“To break the rules, you must first master them.”
