A VERY HAPPY AP
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.
