Just hitting retailers and boutiques now is your upgraded Replica watch Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore, the sportier and frequently bulkier cousin to the Genta-designed classic. This fresh ref. 26480TI. OO.A027CA.01 is accomplished in a 42mm titanium case with a new dial comprising the”Méga Tapisserie” design done in blue and a case that is almost 2mm thinner than present 42mm Royal Oak Offshore chronograph models.
It appears like Audemars Piguet is aiming to catch the Royal Oak buyers who can not really get their hands on one, since they’ve outfitted this ref. 26480TI. OO.A027CA.01 using the Calibre 2385 which allows for the sub-dials at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock, rather than the existing Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Replica watch versions that use the Calibre 3126/3840 which gets the chronograph sub-dials at 6,9, and 12 o’clock. Water resistance is not affected, remaining at 100M.
The new dial is done with blue”Méga Tapisserie” pattern and gray sub-dials, and it appears like the somewhat skeletonized hour and minute hands are somewhat fresh, as well. The second hand is blue, and that color pattern extends into the bottom of the crown and chronograph pusher, in addition to the blue rubber strap the watch comes on.
