The legendary Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Rubber Clad needs no introduction. This amazing and iconic timepiece that we've seen in the wrists of dozen of celebrities and AP lovers was launched back in 2002 and since then, it has seen very few changes. A watch that in the words of François-Henry Bennahmias —during his interview with TimeZone— will continue to live for a little while and then we'll see it re-imagined. We only wonder what it will look like when Audemars Piguet decides to do so.
For now, enjoy the eye-candy as we get ready to bring you some big news from our friends from Le Brassus later today. We will be reporting directly from Miami where a private event will be taking place and we'll bring you full coverage here and via our social media platforms of some big news from the brand. For those of you already wondering, we cannot tell you what it will be, but one thing we are certain is that it is not a re-imagined Rubber Clad.
Featured here, the now discontinued Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Rubber Clad ref. 25940SK.OO.D002CA.02 —with silvered dial and grey chrono registers— and the newer version of the same watch but in rose gold ref. 25940OK.OO.D002CA.02. The stainless steel version of the Rubber Clad is still available as ref. 25940SK.OO.D002CA.03 but with black dial and silver chrono registers.
