Audemars Piguet has rocked the world with their luxury sports watches since 1972 with the world’s first stainless steel luxury sports watch and fully integrated bracelet, and they've been killing it ever since. Elbowing their way into the room and remaining on top, the brand continues to hold down its own against some stiff competition. With exceptional quality, remarkable architecture and cutting-edge designs, it should come as no surprise that the Royal Oak Offshore ref. 25854.TI.00.1150TI is a worthy investment and should be added to any watch enthusiast's collection.
Respected by its precise mechanics and exceptional techniques, this model is inlaid in a fine and rare Titanium case with a 42mm diameter. The original version was crafted in a 39mm case, so we can already appreciate this timepiece's enlarged upgrade (because bigger is better right?) The exaggerated octagonal bezel is a signature aesthetic for the brand including eight hexagonal white gold screws, giving it a sporty and masculine feel. This enlarged design (often being referred to as "The Beast") was created in hopes of attracting a more youthful and recreational audience. The specialties doesn't stop there, trust us, it gets even better! As we approach the 'Petite Tappisserie' dial, we see that it is curated with a sophisticated white tone, green luminous hands and hour markers for great readability and a moonphase indication. It features a chronograph and calendar mechanism, along with prominent rubber gasket between the bezel, case and therban -a rubber material-. It also includes coated chronograph pushers and screw-down crown which gives it a nautical theme, in which the Royal Oak Collection has often been associated with sailing events.
The movement is one we cannot get enough of. Equipped with the calibre 2226/2839 self-winding automatic movement, with a power reserve of 38 hours and water resistance of 100 meters--making it a true sports watch. As extensive as this model is, it is actually light-weight due to its Titanium construction. On the wrist, this timepiece is bold and striking due to its integrated bracelet and stainless steel deployant clasp. The watch is more manageable than other popular wristwatches with a lot of sweet complications to indulge in such as, day, date, month ,moonphase and the leap year cycle indicator on top of the chronograph. This is a watch with great features and you can make it yours today!
