Audemars Piguet launches a new complication in the Royal Oak Offshore collection. Limited to 100 pieces, the new selfwinding timepiece combines flying tourbillon with flyback chronograph in a brand-new case diameter of 43mm.

Although it retains the essence of the Royal Oak Offshore’s original characteristics, the case has evolved to offer optimum ergonomics and aesthetics while the dial reveals the muscular architecture of the new movement hand-finished to the nines. Complemented with the Manufacture’s new interchangeable strap system, this high complication brings together efficiency and technical sophistication.

The Royal Oak Offshore limited edition is powered by a new aesthetic interpretation of the Manufacture’s selfwinding movement with flying tourbillon and flyback chronograph originally released in the Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet collection. While the flyback function enables to restart the chronograph without stopping or resetting it first, the flying tourbillon making its rotation at 6 o’clock compensates for the effect of gravity. With 65 hours of power reserve when not on the wrist and water-resistance to 100 metres, this complicated limited edition is fit for sporty adventures.

This Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon Flyback Chronograph marks the beginning of a new generation of Royal Oak Offshore in 43mm that combines the collection’s powerful identity with a more ergonomic design. The timepiece’s titanium case presents larger polished chamfers on the edges, while the bezel and glare proofed sapphire crystal have been vertically curved for a contemporary touch. The black ceramics screw-locked crown and chronograph pushpieces also follow a refined curvature, while subtly echoing the movement’s grey and dark hues. The alternation of hand-polished chamfers and sandblasting finishing adorning the case and bezel also provides an impactful contrast.
