The Royal Oak Offshore Diver is a godd watch suited for diving.This watch will look and feel right at home.
The case diameter is 42mm like on most Royal Oak Offshores, The thickness of the case is massive at 13.8mm, yet very comfortable. The usual matte finish and polished bevels/chamfers are just perfection.
The movement is encased in a anti-magnetic casing that needs to be unscrewed after removing the case back. The case back is almost twice as thick as the case back in other Royal Oak Offshores to guarantee that the watch can withstand the pressure at 300m deep. Total weight of the watch 169grs.
The dial in black with white gold applied hour-markers and hands with luminescent coating and a inner rotating flange with diving scale that is also luminous. Audemars Piguet gave a glossy effect to this dial to make it appear as if it was wet. Just unbelievable nice and quite hard to appreciate in pictures.
The calendar wheel is black with white fonts and the date aperture is square shaped instead of round as in most Offshores. The date aperture comes with a built-in loupe that appears to be glareproofed. If you notice on some of the pics, the date window appears to have a very slight blueish tint around the corners.
This watch is fitted with a beautiful rubber strap with a thick rubber grain.The buckle is very solid with matte finish on the front but polished at the very end of the edge between the back and the front.
