Subscribe for more great watch content!

For 2018, Audemars Piguet has strengthened its mainstay Royal Oak and Royal Oak Offshore collection. The Royal Oak Offshore turns 25 with a birthday present to itself: the reference 26237ST, a literal re-edition of the 1993 reference 25721 in stainless steel. The Royal Oak Offshore re-edition is joined by a new collection of Royal Oak Offshore Diver models in a range of colors that includes Turquoise, Khaki Green, purple, and beige. The traditional Royal Oak Offshore chronograph receives additional
reinforcements from colors that include Indigo Blue and Khaki Green. Both are rendered in 42mm stainless steel chronograph options featuring color-keyed mega tapisserie dials and diver straps. The new Offshore chronographs also include Audemars Piguet’s first-ever use of blue ceramic. In the 44mm size, the Royal Oak Offshore chronograph gains Khaki Ceramic pusher hoods, crown shoulder, and bezel; a camouflage diver strap and beige dial completes the paramilitary look. Traditional Royal Oak models receive new options and refinements as well. The Royal Oak Openworked Double Balance now is available in 37mm in rose gold and white gold. Moreover, the 37mm Royal Oak Openworked Double Balance can be purchased in Audemars Piguet’s exclusive “frosted gold” surface finish.




Greg Mieg says:

Polished ceramic seems to a ‘norm’ now

Steven UK1 says:

The Royal Oak Offshore Diver is quite nice and is 42mm so you can actually wear it. But is AP really just the Royal Oak and that’s it…

ripperx444 says:

I used to harp on omega for the black blue red green white side of the moons… AP is no better! Same thing just color changes.

G Posada says:

That’s it? A rainbow of colors on the RO. A bit like the old Checker Cab company. How long can this go on? Great reviews as usual and I do love my RO.

ryvr madduck says:

That’s a looootta blue! Gotta love blue with that AP.

Pedro Dias says:

Royal Oak, Royal Oak, Royal Oak. This is the limited editions of the speedy for AP… how can they still be considered in the holy trinity? Lange, Breguet and some more are way more creative and refined. Just boring. Not your videos Tim, of course. I’m loving your repports. Thank you so much. Keep up the good work and especially, don’t forget to have a great time 😉

gurkhaman says:

that black and red offshore kinda reminds me of tone 2 tone black and red g-shocks that came out a few months ago because of its strap where you can see a hint of red on the sides.

Bubba B says:

An AP is an AP is an AP.

JD Michael says:

Exciting new offerings.

Simon Mardakh says:

AP did a great job with the green ceramic! Great looker!

Greg Mieg says:

Like the watch not the camo print, thats too fashionable

hosinooji says:

very colorful, great jobs, looks like an very expensive swatch…

john19050 says:

You Can’t Buy Taste

Agustinus Biotamalo says:

boring watch already, they keep issuing different styling. Basically same shit different skin or face removed to make it skeleton

Oe Elkhateeb says:

And the RO milking continues. Nothing new here really.

Watch Aficionado says:

I never got the AP RO (especially the diver range)… A casual sports watch with funky colours with a fragile/delicate dress watch movement..Why not just get a Zenith, Panerai, Blancpain, Omega or Rolex as a robust casual sports watch and get a second dress watch? The fusion of both worlds doesn’t either get a GAUDY dress watch or a fragile sports/casual watch..

Yong Kwok Hong says:

Wow new Royal oak offshores are ugly as fcuk….

Jimmy split 77 says:

Just sad to see all the negative comments towards AP, I can tell you I collect vintage and modern in many brands from oris to AP and I can confidently say you have to be a seasoned collector to truely understand and appreciate the magnificent AP. Doesn’t hurt to own one before passing judgment either.

Jesus Christ says:

Good work on the narration with all the hustle and bustle going on!

Roelf van der Merwe says:

Damn AP, make something besides a RO for once!

infinati says:

Those divers are hideous…

Andrew Holt says:

That’s the best I’ve seen demonstrating the AP RO and ROO, especially the ‘Combat’ camo edition. I thought all the crown and Chronograph pushers on both 44mm and 42mm were ceramic? Some older model 42mm were nitrile rubber and wore off.

Jay Remi says:

AP just milking the cow, Moser was spot on on their publicity stunt.
Some brands are not sitting on their laurels and Piaget is a very good example of that. Wish AP wake up before it’s too late.

sypen1 says:

Man they make some ugly color combos

manduheavy vazquez says:

Audemars never disappoint. Always master pieces. Greatness.

Stephen Murphy says:

Does AP promote anything other than the RO these days?
