Meet The Swiss White Ceramic Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver Replica Watch

Audemars Piguet announced the arrival of the Royal Oak Offshore Diver White Ceramic replica edition back in January – not the time of year to appreciate the merits of such aesthetics, but with the nights getting longer and shirt sleeves getting shorter let us give this model the attention it deserves.

I am not referring to designer watches for fashionistas, but serious high-end mechanical models, clad in white. Yes, it poses a new “dare I wear?” conundrum, and yes, this is a niche which won’t be to everyone’s taste – but, summer’s on its way, the beach is calling and it is time to put that black PVD edition back in the winder – nothing showcases tanned skin quite like the purity of white. Today we look at two recent models, both exclusive editions of acclaimed models, both of which have been given an immaculate cosmetic update.

The once-defined parameters of what is acceptable in ladies versus gents Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore copy watch design are no longer defined. The new rules are – there are no rules. And now the cross-over enters a new phase – gent’s watches with white cases.Remember when ladies watches were dainty and pink and gent’s models consisted of big steel sports timers or plain flat gold timepieces? Well, that approach of commercial stereotyping is now safely in the past.

The Offshore Diver measures 42mm across, has a chunky, distinctive case shape, with a little bit of caseside sculpting offering protection for the crown.First the case and bezel, which are whiter than white and made from 1850 Vickers “Super” ceramic – 9 times harder than steel, and tricky to work with, presenting challenges for the Audemars Piguet technical team. Harder also means more resistance to wear and tear, so that pristine finish will last for longer.

If you fancy adding the Royal Oak Offshore Diver White Ceramic to your collection, be aware that it is an exclusive boutique-only edition. Surprisingly, it carries its whitened appearance rather well, the Tapisserie pattern on the dial contrasts superbly with the blue black accents and even the exposed screws appear somewhat tame. This is a functional Audemars Piget replica divers watch, so legibility is a priority, but in standout white, it really is a stunner too.
