What is the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Tourbillon replica watch about? This watch was revealed during the 2014 Edition of Watches & Wonders as an evolution of an existing model. Not only the replica watch evolved visually but it also came with a brand new movement, mixing a tourbillon regulator, a superb chronograph and an innovative winding mechanism, all together in the rugged and masculine case of the Royal Oak replica watch.
Design-wise, the new replica watches uk is not very different from the 2011 edition. The overall shape and finish of the case remain similar, with a main part made of forged carbon and measuring 44mm x 14mm. The octagonal bezel with 8 white gold screws is here made of brushed black ceramic, a material also used for the crown and the pushers surrounded by a large and protruding protection piece made of titanium.
A black rubber strap complements this massive, robust but not so indelicate design. The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Tourbillon Chronograph replica watch is clearly a very masculine and sporty watch but it’s not entirely denied of a certain elegance and modernity, coming from the use of highly technical materials and a mix of grey and black colours.
Considering the 44mm case, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Tourbillon Chronograph replica watch wears surprisingly well, the extra 2mm in diameter coming from the protection piece on the right side. It’s impressive and massive but far from being uncomfortable and unwearable too. The dial has also been upgraded on this 2014 edition, compared to the 2011 one. The “mega tapisserie” pattern remains but the two sub-counters are now black and not white anymore.
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Tourbillon Chronograph replica watch is a limited edition. It’s an impressive piece, bold and masculine without being too rugged and large.
