http://www.crmjewelers.com – AP vs Rolex – Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore and Rolex Submariner Gold. Which is Better?
In this video, I will be reviewing the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore (42mm Stainless Steel) and the Rolex Submariner Gold (40mm Solid Gold). Both of these luxury watches have their unique differences in terms of look and status level. The Rolex Sub being reviewed sports a classic look taken up a notch – an all gold design. The AP is in the same price range as the Rolex (around $15 k), but its design is very unique and contemporary.
If you’re venturing into the world of luxury watches for the first time, you’ll probably favor the gold Rolex because it makes a louder statement. However, as time goes by, you may get a bit tired of it and decide that you don’t want to wear something so flashy all the time. This is where the Audemars comes in. Constructed out of stainless steel, the AP is a more understated watch, but one with a lot more character – perfect the watch connoisseur. Nevertheless, you must take something into consideration about the AP. Being a watch that is prone to scratches, I would not recommend it for the first time wearer. You need to have to have some practice under your belt before you wear this watch.
The gold Submariner, on the other hand, is a beautiful watch, but not one you may want to wear all the time. A gold Rolex Sub is also a watch that’s relatively rarer than other more famous Rolex models, like the President or Yacht-Master.
When it comes to investment potential, both of these watches are safe bets. AP is the next level after Rolex and before Patek Philippe. It can hold its value just as well or even better than a Rolex. After all is said and done, my personal preference is definitely the AP Offshore.
