Audemars Piguet have reworked a bunch of their Royal Oak Offshore collection with 11 new additions.

There’s a lot to get through so let’s start with the five new versions presented with a 43mm case. It has wider polished chamfers on the case, and each has black ceramic pushers and crown.

There are titanium, stainless steel, and pink gold options amongst these five. They each feature AP’s flying chronograph movement, Calibre 4401, that features a 70-hour power reserve and up to 100m of water resistance.

The pink gold variant is the standout amongst these five but certainly isn’t the one for everyone as the others look quite sporty and versatile. The price for these references starts at $45,500 USD ($61,800 AUD).

The original 1993 Offshore has also had a redesign with the introduction of three new 42mm variants in stainless steel. They feature for the first time a petit tapisserie dial that does look gorgeous, particularly on the pink gold reference that has a stunning deep blue dial that always looks brilliant when paired with pink gold. The dials have been reconfigured so that the sub dials are equidistant from the centre. Prices for these start at $50,000 USD ($67,900 AUD).

There are two new references that have made colour their priority. The 42mm Royal Oak Offshore automatic flying chronographs come in stainless steel and titanium. The dials come in either light blue or green with a matching rubber strap. Each watch uses an upscaled version of the petit tapisserie found on the others called Offshore’s Mega Tapisserie. Both of these are only available at Audemars Piguet boutiques and are priced at $41,200 USD ($55,900 AUD).

The final addition is a beautiful 18k white gold limited edition Royal Oak Offshore Diver. The 42mm watch features black ceramic dials and bezel. It’s water resistant up to 300m and it’s powered by Audemars Piguet’s newest movement, the Calibre 4308, that has a 60-hour power reserve and an instant-jump date change feature. On the dial it also features the Mega Tapisserie in black with white gold hour markers and hands. It’s a slick looking watch but feels to chunky to be a tool watch.

These are limited to 300 pieces and are going for $72,800 USD ($98,900 AUD).
