Audemars Piguet has revealed two versions for the new Royal Oak Offshore Summer Edition for men in an 18-karat rose gold case, with “mega tapisserie” dial and white rubber strap. The Summer Edition for women in stainless steel case, with silver “lady tapisserie” dial, 32 brilliant-cut diamond set bezel and white rubber strap. The watchmaker has created these two limited-edition models to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Le Byblos Saint-Tropez.
Audemars Piguet is producing a limited edition model dedicated to a hotel for the very first time, taking as its model the emblematic Royal Oak Offshore, one of the very first outsize wristwatches, created in 1993. Two leading luxury houses share an objective that has been brought to fruition with the creation of the Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Summer Edition, a collection comprising just seventy pieces: twenty brushed steel and diamond ladies’ watches and fty rose gold models for men.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Summer Edition for women with its stainless steel case, silver “lady tapisserie” dial and 32 brilliant-cut diamond set bezel is the perfect complement to your summer. The men’s version features 18-carat rose gold case, “mega tapisserie” dial, and white rubber strap, to get your summer bliss right on.
White rubber wrist strap symbolizes summer in Saint-Tropez, and illustrates the joyful alliance between precious and contemporary materials. These two creations also boast golden applied pointers and subtle blue transfers on the dial. On the rear of each case is engraved the Byblos coat of arms depicting the abduction of Europa by Zeus, encircled by two dates: 1967-2017.
The micro-mechanics are housed in a stainless steel casing protected by non-re ective sapphire glass that is waterproof to a depth of 50 metres. Waterproof to a depth of 100 metres, the men’s model is somewhat larger, with a casing made entirely of 18-carat rose gold, along with its screwed- on bezel ring, its push buttons and hands. Both watches are sold exclusively at Le Byblos in Saint-Tropez from 28 May through to 10 October 2017.
