Pre SIHH 2019: Audemars Piguet unveils 3 new Royal Oak Offshore Chronographs in a range of camouflage colours

by Hours and Minutes Australia

Swiss Haute Horlogerie Manufacture Audemars Piguet unveils 3 new Royal Oak Offshore Chronographs in a range of camouflage colours as part their pre SIHH 2019 release. The collection which was first showcased in Dubai earlier in November features a 44mm case, ceramic bezel, pushpieces and screw-locked crown, Méga-Tapisserie dial and robust rubber straps.

While the blue and green ceramic models feature a stainless steel case, the brown ceramic model – a first for Audemars Piguet – is endowed with a pink gold case that nicely sets off the bezel. Harder than steel, ceramic withstands high temperatures, thermal shock, scratches and … the passing years! Colouring ceramic requires a complex research stage to find the right pigments, as well as a long and delicate manufacturing process.
