Impressive new model, familiar model.
Two years ago, Audemars Piguet launched the Royal Oak Offshore Diver replica watch made of forged carbon. Last year we purchased the same black ceramic watch. Well, this year we will launch Offshore Diver again, this time in white ceramic. Yes, white ceramic. This watch looks absolutely original. Due to the 1850 Vickers white super ceramic case, bezel, buttons and crown, it may remain the same. This is not the subtlety of Offshore Diver, but it is impressive.
The basic structure of this watch is almost the same as last year’s black ceramic Offshore Diver. This model adds a sapphire glass window on the titanium bottom cover, and the white version repeats this function. The case has the same diameter, with a diameter of 42mm and a thickness of 13.9mm, with an internal baffle adjuster at 10 o’clock, and a crown guard on the right side of the case.
White ceramic not only brings more mixing effect to the color. Audemars Piguet uses a material called white superceramics, which appears at a price of 1850 Vickers hardness, more than 500 Vickers hardness than last year’s black ceramic hardness. The hardness of this super ceramic is more than 9 times that of steel, and as you would expect, it is difficult to use for the same reasons. It takes about 12 hours to make the middle shell and about 8 hours to make the frame-for comparable steel components, this takes about 1.5 hours and 45 minutes, respectively. Achieving the polished and brushed surface that offshore divers are known for is equally strenuous for white super ceramics. vogue4uwatches.com
The white dial has a Mega Tapisserie pattern, and the hour and minute hands are engraved with blue lettering. Except for the brightest light, these dark blue ornaments look black in all cases, although the color brings a little extra color to a watch that could have been better. The overall brightness makes Diver very clear, although this brightness means that your wrist may also attract a lot of attention. Whether this is a good thing or a bad thing depends on you.
The bottom cover (and other metal parts you see) is titanium and has sapphire glass windows, allowing you to better watch fake the Audemars Piguet 3120 movement with a carved 22k gold rotor. This is a beautiful automatic chronograph movement that provides a 60-hour power reserve. Even with a sapphire window, the case can be waterproofed to 300m.
