Audemars Piguet - Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph 42 mm, 2021 Editions

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph 42 mm 26238ST

Audemars Piguet
released the latest evolution of the Royal Oak Offshore, the model that Emmanuel Gueit designed in 1993 causing the disappointment of Gérald Genta which had created the original Royal Oak in 1972 (your can read more on this, and Genta's reaction when he discovered the Offshore, in our article "History of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak").

The original Royal Oak Offshore presented in 1993

The new Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph 42 mm comes in three versions - in stainless steel (26238ST),  in titanium (26238TI) and in pink gold (ref. 26238OR) - and sports the Manufacture’s latest selfwinding flyback chronograph movement, a slightly revised dial design, and a new interchangeable strap system.

Equipped with column wheel and flyback function, the new Calibre 4404 beats at the frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour) with an autonomy of 70 hours.

Through the glareproofed sapphire caseback, it is possible to observe the movement and its 22-carat pink gold oscillating weight.

The 42 mm x 15.2 mm case and the integrated bracelet of the three timepieces have all been hand-finished with an alternation of satin- brushing and polished chamfers.

The stainless steel and pink gold references features blue rubber push-pieces and crown as well as the gasket sealing the bezel onto the case. These components are black in the titanium version.

The dials are enhanced by the signature “Petite Tapisserie” pattern. In these models, the hour and small seconds counters have been inverted: the hour counter is now positioned at 12 o’clock, while the small seconds counter appears at 6 o’clock. At 9 o'clock we still find the minute counter. For improved visual balance compared to the original, all the counters are now equidistant from the centre of the dial.

The date window has also been topped off with a loupe glass integrated into the dial to magnify the date numeral, just like in the 1993 timepiece.

The new interchangeable strap system – a first at Audemars Piguet - makes it possible to change the bracelets and buckles with a quick click and release. This way, the metal bracelet can be replaced with the interchangeable rubber strap that comes with the watch, or other straps form the Audemars Piguet assortment, for a different look.

Water resistant to 100 metres / 330 feet, the new editions of the Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph 42 mm by Audemars Piguet have prices of CHF 38,500 in steel (ref. 26238ST), CHF 38,500 in titanium (ref. 26238TI) and CHF 78,700 in pink gold (ref. 26238OR). audemarspiguet.com
