Audemars Piguet Overhauls The Royal Oak Offshore With A ’90s Retro Design

Audemars Piguet has given their oversized Royal Oak Offshore line a bit of a makeover, and the result is — gasp — smaller watches!

The brand has introduced a quintet of new Royal Oak Offshore Chronographs in a slightly smaller 43mm case size (down from 44mm), while otherwise mostly maintaining the same aggressive styling. But in even more exciting news, AP has also introduced five brand-new models in 42mm — the same case size of the original Royal Oak Offshore from 1993 before the oversized watch trend kicked off and sizes ballooned out of control. These trimmer models feature a left-sided layout thanks to the in-house automatic flyback chronograph movement, Calibre 4404, along with smaller, round rubber pushers. The more classically styled dials come with either a “Petite” or “Méga Tapisserie” motif in a variety of colors, and all models are now equipped with AP’s new interchangeable strap system. With cases in stainless steel, titanium, and 18-carat pink gold available, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Self-Winding Chronograph in 42mm starts at $33,400.

Purchase: $33,400+
