Audemars Piguet’s most recent releases in its Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph collection feature some contemporary design updates. Here’s a closer look at six Audemars Piguet Royal Oaks, and the similarities and differences they share with their predecessors. The modern “26470” family of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronographs — launched two years ago at SIHH
At last year’s SIHH, Audemars Piguet introduced a concept minute repeater – the RD#1 “Acoustic Research” – as part of a series showcasing new technology and materials developed by the brand’s R&D department. The prototype was the result of eight years of research and represented a breakthrough in the acoustic quality and volume of chiming technology.
For the first new watch that it is unveiling in advance of SIHH 2016 in January, Audemars Piguet goes for what many would consider old-school horological luxury — releasing a new version of its Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar in classical yellow gold.
