There’s a cer­tain amount of envy that watch brands ac­cu­mu­late for them­selves if they can do cer­tain things oth­ers can’t. Brand im­age cer­tainly dic­tates what a brand can and should pro­duce. A master mechanical watch­maker is un­likely to make a cheap quartz watch, for in­stance. It’s th­ese lit­tle in­vis­i­ble lines that make the Aude­mars Piguet Royal Oak Off­shore so very en­vi­able. With a core and very loyal fan­base that in­cludes movie stars, rap­pers, singers, foot­ballers and more, AP can set a tone and let their in­flu­encers sell the watch. And with great power, comes great colours? That’s the idea at Le Bras­sus, at least since last year when they went all ‘funky’ with colour­ful Royal Oaks. Lest we for­get, the Off­shore is the ISO 6425 cer­ti­fied dive watch in the col­lec­tion. It’s the se­ri­ous watch that divers can take along for deeper dives and one of the few that has a clear case­back to view the ma­chine’s move­ments; most Iso-cer­ti­fied pieces don’t have that. If you want to add a lit­tle envy in your life, try this AP on for size.
