Introduction

Debuting in 1993 to a shocked Baselworld, the Royal Oak Offshore was designed to expand upon Audemars Piguet's ever-iconic Royal Oak collection as a genuine sports-focused timepiece that took the reins from the Royal Oak. Designed so that it could take some serious wear and tear while continuing to perform at the highest standards possible, the Royal Oak Offshore epitomized a luxury sports watch by all accounts – a sector within the market it has grown to define. Featuring AP's artisanal craftsmanship like always, avant-garde design, and an impeccable taste for the horological, the Royal Oak Offshore was, and still is, a true maverick amongst both; AP’s offerings and the entire industry's. Sporting all of the Royal Oak Offshore’s most iconic features, with the exception of its bracelet, the ref. 25808ST breaks from the famed sports watch collection’s DNA through the use of its unique dial and unusual leather strap. While its dial uses the Royal Oak’s signature ‘Petite Tapisserie’ texture, it also features a triple date complication, as its name suggests, through neighboring day and month apertures at 12 o'clock and a pointer date display. Furthermore, it also features a running seconds subdial – another detail that we seldom see in any member of the Royal Oak family.

THE DIAL

With its dark navy color and unique triple calendar arrangement, the ref. 25808ST's dial is unlike the majority of Royal Oak Offshore models that we have seen Audemars Piguet create during the Offshore's production.

THE CONSTRUCTION

Featuring a 39mm stainless steel case with most of the Royal Oak Offshore's typical design, the ref. 25808ST's construction will be rather familiar to the AP collectors, with its unique lug design standing out as a particular point of intrigue.

Our Perspective

An interesting timepiece from within the Royal Oak Offshore collection, the ref. 25808ST is a splendidly unique offering from Audemars Piguet as they blend high horology with a sports watch resulting in an interesting timepiece indeed.
