The exciting new diving watches from the Royal Oak Offshore collection guarantee good humour to a depth of 300m. Enough to bring a smile to the face of the most terrifying sea creature! 

In 2016, a dazzling chronograph collection joined the Audemars Piguet catalogue. A year later, the watchmaker from Le Brassus has renewed the experience with some new Royal Oak Offshore Divers models, the Funky Colour Editions. Funky because the three-hand watches come in bright colours that are not much used in contemporary watchmaking: navy blue with yellow trim, pure white, lemon yellow, flash orange and kiwi green with blue touches.

The hour and date functions are powered by the 3120 calibre, a self-winding mechanism made by Audemars Piguet, and providing a power reserve of 60 hours. The calibre is housed in a steel case with a diameter of 42mm. Since the Royal Oak Offshore Divers is above all a divers watch, it is water-resistant to a depth of 300m, has a bolted crown sheathed in blue rubber, and is equipped with an internal revolving bezel incorporating the indispensable diving scale. The area from 0 to 15 minutes echoes the colour of the dial except in the blue model.

The dial has the chequerboard “Méga Tapisserie“ pattern, a feature of the Royal Oak Offshore Divers models. It contains an hour marker with gold indexes and two Royal Oak silver and luminescent hands (excepting the blue version, which has a minute hand with a yellow coating). The hour and minute hands are placed at the centre, while a third hand tipped with a phosphorescent dot displays the seconds. The date is shown against a blue or white background in a window at 3 o’clock.
