The Royal Oak Offshore was introduced in 1993, and it has given the Royal Oak a more powerful and sportier take on its normally elegant style. This particular model has a dial with a “Méga Tapisserie” pattern, and the hands are white gold with a luminescent coating. The Royal Oak Selfwinding Chronograph is fitted with a display case back that allows for a full view of the new in-house Audemars Piguet automatic integrated chronograph calibre 4404.
This movement is equipped with a column wheel and flyback function. Unlike a regular chronograph, the flyback function allows the wearer to stop, reset and start the chronograph in one simple action. The column wheel works in collaboration with a vertical clutch system. The Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph is equipped with AP’s new interchangeable strap. The interchangeability has been directly integrated into the buckle and case’s studs.
