Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Grande Complication Watch – New Black and White Ceramic Models

Presented at SIHH 2018, the new 44mm Royal Oak Offshore Grande Complication watch models feature ceramic push-pieces and crowns, push-piece guards, cases, and case-backs for a high tech metal look.

Black ceramic is reinforced with yttrium oxide, making it seven times harder than steel. White ceramic on the other hand is reinforced with aluminium oxide which gives it a high gloss finish and makes it even harder than black ceramic and nine times harder than steel.

Equipped with the Manufacture Calibre 2885 automatic movement, this grand complication watch incorporates Minute repeater, perpetual calendar, and split-seconds chronograph.

The new ceramic editions of the Royal Oak Offshore Grande Complication watch come fitted with black or white rubber strap with titanium pin buckle.
