In order to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore, the brand is releasing some a few interesting pieces. The 2021 updated design is also present on this new two-tone release. The contrasting color scheme manages to enhance each particular hue.The 43 mm case is made of black ceramic with a mix of polished accents and a vertically brushed surface finish. Mounted to the case is AP’s signature octagonal bezel also with a vertical satin-brushed finish and eight exposed white gold screws.On the flip-side is a sapphire exhibition case back that allows a view into the inner workings of the mechanical movement. The oscillating weight is black coated and decorated with the “AP” inscription. It comes equipped with two solid push-pieces that activate the chronograph functions, while between them lay protecting gold crown guards and the screw-in setting crown adorned with the AP logo in gold. All topped by a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating. Water-resistance that can reach up to 100 meters (328 feet)Time is exhibited on a black dial with the signature Audemar Piguet “Méga Tapisserie” pattern dial with applied 18k yellow gold hour index markers. While circling around the flange is a white printed minutes/seconds track ring.
It features three snailed sub-dials with gold hands: a 12-hour counter at 3 o’clock, a sub-seconds at 6 o’clock, and a 30-minute counter at the 9 o’clock position.There is also a date window placed between the 4 and 5 o’clock spots.On the upper-half of the dial instead of the long-form "Audemars Piguet" logo (like the 50th anniversary chronograph models had) it appears as “AP”. This iconic tri-compax layout appears very well defined in the contrasting gold on black color palette. The central 18k yellow gold hands and hour index markers have all been fitted with a luminescent coating, for an enhanced legibility.
