If you are a diver who prides himself on style and are looking for a way to make an impression, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver Chronograph is the sophisticated timepiece you need in your collection. The AP Royal Oak Diver is more than a symbol of class and sophistication, but it comes with many benefits and functions.

Audemars Piguet ROO Diver Watch is not just for divers. This watch is for the man who loves to express his sense of adventure with a luxury timepiece that will surely be a conversation piece. If you’re unsure if an AP Royal Oak Offshore Diver is the watch for you, here are five reasons that may change your mind.

Exquisite Quality Construction

Audemars Piguet is an independent Swiss family business that uses the best materials and processes to construct the Royal Oak Offshore diver. Audemars Piguet combines its traditional designs with the best manufacturing operations in the watchmaking industry. Precision is the primary focus of this timepiece.

Aesthetically Appealing

Audemars Piguet Diver Watch has a minimalist design that consists of just the essentials: time, date, and a bezel that allows you to keep track of your dive time. Emmanuel Gueit designed the 2010 Royal Oak Diver as an ode to Gérald Genta’s original 1970’s Royal Oak creation. What started as just one style, the ROO Diver Watch, comes in various styles and colors. You can also select an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver in 42mm, 44mm, and 45mm sizes.

High Functionality

Diving can be a dangerous pastime. That’s why AP ROO Diver’s wide range of functionality was one of the main design goals. It has a water resistance of up to 300 meters. Its case has a thickness of 14.1mm, enhancing its functionality through the most extreme of conditions. It also has a power reserve of 60 hours. Its dive time measurement displays the date, time in hours, minutes, and seconds.

Proven History of Precision

AP ROO has been creating beautiful, precision timepieces since 1875. Audemars Piguet has built watches with a proven track record of reliability. Manufacturing a watch with precision functionality and an ability to tolerate extreme conditions takes years of perfecting their process.


The Diver’s self-winding, bidirectional caliber 3120 is sturdy enough to add to the watch’s durability. After all, every inch of the 280-part watch was designed and built with durability being the primary focus. Normal watches, of course, would falter under the pressures associated with diving. But AP ROO’s durability increases the watch’s usefulness both underwater and on land, ensuring the protection of your investment.

Though the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver was machined to be a diving watch, it functions well as a stylish luxury accessory on land. This is a watch fit for the adventurous man who appreciates luxury and functionality.
