Audemars Piguet has revealed a new, entirely redesigned 43mm the Royal Oak Offshore Flying Tourbillon Flyback-Chronograph into its recently updated Offshore collection. Furthermore, it is a limited edition of only 100 pieces.
This selfwinding timepiece combines a flying tourbillon with a flyback chronograph housed in a restyled titanium case that paves the way for a new generation of Royal Oak Offshore models presenting larger polished chamfers on the edges, curved bezel and sapphire crystal. The black ceramics screw-locked crown and chronograph pushpieces also follow a refined curvature, while subtly echoing the movement’s grey and dark hues.
The open-worked dial of the Royal Oak Offshore Flying Tourbillon Flyback-Chronograph, with its black outer ring and two transparent chronograph counters, showcases the two-tone movement creates a contrasting background for the white gold hands and white transferred minute track. The red chronograph hands enhance the sporty look of the watch. While the flyback function enables to restart the chronograph without stopping or resetting it first, the flying tourbillon making its rotation at 6 o’clock improves the accuracy by compensating for the effect of gravity.
Flip the timepiece over and you’ll find the sapphire caseback presents an openworked oscillating weight in 22-carat gold coated with black PVD and the words “Royal Oak Offshore Limited Edition of 100 Pieces.” engraved on the edges. While the Calibre 2967 matches its predecessor with 65 hours of power reserve the watch itself offers a more reassuring 100m of water resistance more inline with the Offshore’s sportier characteristics.
The watch is equipped with an interchangeable black rubber strap with sandblasted titanium folding clasp and delivered with an additional interchangeable black “large square-scale” alligator strap. With the double push system, the manufacturer guarantees optimal safety when worn.
