Retro Eye for the Modern: Aunt Royal Oak Offshore Diving Chronograph

One of the worst-kept secrets of the watch news world is not that every topic inspires the author. Not every product is groundbreaking. Not every product will revolutionize the market, nor is every product worth preserving. In spite of this, the writer must write. At a time when journalists are at a loss, honest people are still working to a certain extent about the true passion of timepieces and the stories surrounding it.

Fortunately for all of us, this is not always the case. Not only that, many watches stimulate the excitement of writers and readers. From time to time, a watch is released that reminds one writer again why they first got involved in the industry.



For me, one of the watches is the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver Chronograph – a watch that captured the SIHH 2016 market and proved to be a possible sign of the Royal Oak Offshore Armin Strom replica watches

The “Offshore” series began in 1993 with the reference number 25721 ST. The original unveiling of the reference resulted in only 100 numbered fragments – similar to the A-Series version of the Old Royal Oak reference. 5402 “Treasures” (pictured below, right) in the early 1970s. This Offshore is a thick steel chronograph, the appropriate nickname is “The Beast.” At 42mm, the watch’s prominent wrist design, octagonal bezel, integrated bracelet and dark blue “Petite Tapisserie” dial are designed to cater to the rapidly growing and affluent youth population. It can be said that this work is to modernize the industrial style of a larger watch, and today the original 100 has become some of the most valuable antique watches.



Diving chronograph is the latest version of this series. This bold and bright behemoth features four distinctly stylish color options (yellow, green, blue and orange), 42mm thick 14mm thick steel case, rubber bracelet, black ceramic super compressor and Chronograph crown and propeller. On the outside, the eight-rebar octagonal is an inner rotating dive bezel, an hour mark on platinum, two stopwatches and a 30-minute timer counter subdials – all placed on the background dial in the “Méga Tapisserie” mode. Offshore hands common on the dial with a colorful minute hands, wide-brimmed and lollipop chronograph. The Caliber 3124/3841 auto-AP is internally powered and visible through the sapphire back, providing 50 hours of power reserve and driven by the adorned rugged gold rotor.



Compared with the original Royal Oak, reference 5402, this watch still retains many of the basic des/~EoUѹXp$ctagonal eight-thread bezel, integrated steel watch and bracelet, unique hand and hour scale, and engraved Crowned face – but it is fair to say that the diving chronographs serve as respect for the A Series.

Compared with the original offshore, Ref. 25721 ST, Modern watch hit a lot of notes in this branch series again. With ceramic thrusters and crown, chronograph features, 42mm thick steel case, wider hour markers and hands, this modern reference will not be mistaken for any other family member. Even the Super Compressor’s inner bezel, while apparently a completely different dial characteristic, replaces the same curves and slanted elements than the previous line-of-sight level.



However, with all the similarities to the original reference, there are many notable changes in this latest reference that differ from “beasts.” One of the most noteworthy is the color. Offshore prior to the publication of this reference – some consider themselves fanciful – never before had the color scheme to leave Easter Sunday and the Houseboat summer. The next thing to emphasize is that this may be the first time that the Offshore line has changed from complementary accents to oranges or blacks to more unusual combinations. If previous offshore banks did not compare black with gold, blue with steel and gold (as in the table below), it would be unfair to see the diving chronograph and rubber strap with a soft color dial instead Look with the precious metal bracelet and leather strap. Outside of color, the biggest change in aesthetics is the use of the “MégaTapisserie” dial pattern, rather than vintage “petite.”sale Hublot SPIRIT OF BIG BANG replica Watches

The last major change seen was the hour-mark and the overall width and length of the hand that was larger; there were two horizontal subsurfaces instead of the traditional three vertical subsurfaces; and no date indicator. These changes seem to be helping dive and creating a more carefree, younger “summer” look.



Longtime readers of the Retro Eye series may recall the first time I covered Sea Series and the critique of the series when I compared the series with the original Royal Oaks series. However, with the development of this series, it is becoming more and more obvious that the offshore collection is no longer a branch of the Royal Oak Company. It is even more a unique entity. The colors, textures, patterns and functions of the offshore dive chronograph seem to “better” possess the entire range of products marketed: super-masculinity, visibility of wealth, or satire on all of this absurdity awareness. It should therefore be classified as a more direct ancestral home since 1993 than as “Jumbos” of the 1970s.

With this, some of you may have always believed that the Ocean Series and its first reference may not necessarily be year-long, which is usually a watch for ages 25-30. (Offshore is 23). I would normally agree with this definition, but the diving chronograph is the most recent evidence of off-line pedigree that has evolved and developed its original parameters away from the “93” beast “and even further removed from the original Royal Oak. The reason is that historically overseas references are so rare and coveted that they are no longer representative of the modern series and, therefore, at least not “retro” if not strictly defined in chronological order.wholesale Franck Muller replica Watches



In spite of this, though, this watch has moved the series toward more complete independence, but it seems to be a confusing function and purpose. On the one hand, having a texture strap adds stability, diving with a super compressor, tightening crown watertight – all the signs of a diving watch required for the function. On the other hand, there are non-helical timing boosters, sapphire backs, 300-meter diving and overall daring design (not suitable for diving, more suitable for affluent leisure) and seem to have left traces of the 20th century ” Form follows function “Philosophy These watches derive from it, not the sheer aesthetic appeal of today’s sea series. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it is interesting to note.

For me, Audemars Piguet’s Offshore Diving Chronograph is an anomaly, and this is partly why I found it so funny. The complicated analysis of references makes it almost impossible to guide the creation of a tribute film; however, it depicts how a series can enter itself after many years of its first development. Although this particular version is a model and does not guarantee that it will seriously affect the overall design of future offshore watches, it may represent a series of directions for the next few years.TAG HEUER CARRERA CALIBRE 16 CV201AD.FC6233 replica watch
