On the eve of the 2019 SIHH, Swiss fine watch brand Audemars Piguet launched three new Royal Oak offshore automatic chronographs with new modern dials Designed in 18K rose gold and stainless steel. The new watch will be officially launched at the Geneva International Haute Horlogerie in January 2019.

   Since its inception, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore watch has always shown extraordinary charm with new materials and innovative ideas. The new model launched this year also continues this tradition. The new 44 mm diameter watch incorporates a ceramic bezel, buttons and screw-down crown, an oversized checkered dial ‘Méga Tapisserie’, and a durable rubber strap.

   The blue and green ceramic models feature a stainless steel case. For the first time, Audemars Piguet has applied brown ceramics to the watch, with an 18K rose gold case that complements the bezel. Ceramic is harder than stainless steel, can withstand high temperature and thermal shock, has excellent scratch resistance, and is durable. Colored ceramics need to undergo complex research process and fine manufacturing technology to be able to perfectly display suitable colors.
