In 2014 SIHH, Audemars Pigeut released some impressive watches just like it did before. In the past year, Audemars Pigeut focused on their symbolic Jumbo (which celebrated its 40 anniversary in 2012) or some other grand complication watches, such as Jules Audemars Toubillon. But in this year, the whole attention was put on Royal Oak Offshore
Sure the first Audemars Pigeut Royal Oak Osshore is by no means a big watch according today’s standards, as it has a medium case of 42mm, but back in 1993 it was definitely a big monster. It has a solid and thick case and metal bracelet that make it gains popularity. In the past 20 years, Roo series has increasing sizes and new styles. Therefore it can stands for itself. It is so big that some people thought that it is not good for wrist, but still for those who love Roo, it is kid of religious thing that have certain connection to it. Roo has many varieties, such as Musician edition, actor’s edition and sport edition, and professional edition, like diver watch.
Audemars Pigeut made minor change to colors and make it look more elegant. Round patterns on the small dial gives an extra texture. The hands on the new Roo are dimensional and looks brighter.
Now let’s turn to the case, and you will see the obvious difference: sapphire case back.
