The new 'Pride of Indonesia' is an interesting addition to the other Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore 'Prides'. The manufacture from Le Brassus just released last week, the new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore 'Pride of Indonesia' ref. 26179IR.OO.A005CR.01. This new watch fitted with a 42 mm titanium case with the same construction as the original Royal Oak Offshore —not with the revamped case design unveiled during the SIHH 2014 with beefier crown guards and ceramic pushers and crown— with rubber clad pushers/crown and an 18K rose gold case back engraved with the legend "Royal Oak Offshore Pride of Indonesia" and Indonesia's national symbol the Javanese eagle Garuda —a large bird-like humanoid creature that appears in both Hinduism and Buddhi. This new limited edition 'Pride of Indonesia' ref. 26179IR.OO.A005CR.01 features an gray anthracite dial that is satin-brushed —similar to the Doha Boutique Limited Edition— with rose gold-toned chrono registers, rose gold applied Arabic numerals, rose gold Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating and a perfectly contrasting rose gold-toned tachymetric flange.
The new 'Pride of Indonesia' is completed by a hand-stitched large square scale —not the traditional AP hornback— anthracite alligator strap with a titanium pin buckle where the pin is made of 18K rose gold. Additionally, the watch is supplied with an anthracite rubber strap. The combination of materials, titanium and pink gold, is definitely echoed by the rose gold pin on thetitanium buckle.
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore 'Pride of Indonesia' ref. 26179IR.OO.A005CR.01 is powered by the Audemars Piguet automatic calibre 3126/3840 composed of 365 parts, 59 jewels and which provides a power reserve of 50 hours when fully wound while beating at a frequency of 21,600 vph.
A special presentation case has been created in grey lacquer to add the finishing touch to this
harmonious piece only available in Indonesia. The watch is available in a 100-piece limited edition.
