As ‘the Beast’ knocks on the door of three decades as one of the most distinguished sports chronographs, Audemars Piguet have unveiled a new riff on their perennial favourite: the Offshore 43mm. With versions in titanium, 18-carat pink-gold, and stainless steel, these are relevant, modern watches with a classic and distinctive aesthetic. They are as street smart as they are sophisticated. Thought you had the Royal Oak Offshore worked out? Maybe it’s time to think again.
