AUDEMARS PIGUET ROYAL OAK OFFSHORE 2014 COLLECTION
A LOOK AT 6 NEW SWISS-MADE 26470 MODEL WATCHES
Written by Menswear Style in New Collections on the 15th May 2014 / Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore 2014 Collection
Audemars Piguet are undoubtedly one of the biggest luxury watch brands in existence with their Royal Oak Offshore collection literally being some of the biggest luxury watches with 42mm cases.
The ROO was the biggest watch when launched in 1993, and this year it will be expanding with six new models being added, a flash back to their roots and a nod to the ROO case size, named the ‘26470’ family [26470 being the new collection’s reference]. Here is an introduction to the six new watches:
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore 2014 Horn Back Strap watches
These three models have a 42mm stainless steel case fitted with the iconic Royal Oak octagonal bezel with a black/grey/cream ‘Mega Tapisserie’ patterned dial with chronograph and date dials, Arabic numerals and white-gold hands with luminescent coating.
It also features a tachymeter around the outer dial and a ‘hornback’ alligator strap with coloured stitching that gives them a rugged and daring appearance.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Black Strap Mens Watch 26470OR.OO.A002CR.01
This model has two main colours, rose gold and black giving it a sophisticated and luxurious look. The 42mm case is rose gold with a matching ‘Mega Tapisserie’ rose gold dial with black chronograph dials, date window, Arabic numerals and tachymeter. It also has a regular black alligator strap with gold stitching.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Blue Mens Watch 26470ST.OO.A027CA.01
Appearing sporty, this model has a blue rubber strap and blue ‘Mega Tapisserie’ dial with orange seconds hand, chronograph hands and tachymeter. The Arabic numerals and chronograph dials are white and stand out on the dial.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Rose Gold Mens Watch 26470OR.OO.1000OR.01
Rose gold all over and eye-catchingly striking, this model has a rose gold toned dial with black chronograph sub-dials, date dial and tachymeter. Unlike the other five models this one has a linked bracelet also made from rose gold.
Each Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore 2014 watch model is Swiss-made, has sapphire crystal glass on the front and the back of the case and is water resistant to 100 metres. They can be viewed at The Watch Gallery.
