Rugged and resistant to the pressure sustained at depths of 300 metres, the Mens Royal Oak Offshore Diver black ceramic replica watch maximises is ully compliant with the NIHS 92-11 (ISO6425) norm. This selfwinding model, built for subaquatic use, appears this year for the first time with a case, bezel and easy-grip crowns all made of deep black high-tech ceramics. This dive-time indicator can be adjusted via a watertight external crown positioned at 10 o’clock along the side of the case middle.This material is around seven times harder than steel and can only be scratched by diamonds. The case middle is treated to polished and satin-brushed finishes that represented a daunting technical challenge to achieve this degree of quality, due to the inherent resistant to abrasion of this composite material.
The rotating dive-time pre-selection device is unusually positioned inside the case. It offers the advantage of reducing the parallax error and protecting it from shocks and aggressive external factors.
To improve the readability contrast in the ocean depths, the black dial of the timepiece is for the first time bearing the traditional “Méga Tapisserie” pattern fitted with a luminescent orange hand matching the diving scale appearing on the rotating inner bezel ring, which also features an orange zone between 12 and 3 o’clock.
The Black fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver watch also provides a central seconds display and a date indication at 3 o’clock: It is driven by Manufacture Audemars Piguet mechanical selfwinding Calibre 3120, which may be observed through the titanium case-back fitted with a sapphire crystal – also a first in the Offshore Diver collection. The latter highly sensitive element, that must be able to withstand the underwater pressure exercised at a depth of 300 metres, is secured to the case middle by screws and serves to reveal the 22-carat solid gold oscillating weight, along with some of the meticulously finished movement components including its balance beating at a rate of 21,600 vibrations per hour.
