AP Royal Oak Offshore Rubber Clad 259405k Watch Review
AP Royal Oak Offshore watches are classic men’s time pieces. Although a modern men’s watch the Audemars Piguet brand has created an iconic look with their Royal Oak Offshore collection. The watches with their unique octagonal bezel featuring visible accent screws is an iconic accessory. These iconic watches are instantly recognizable. Truly a feat of design and engineering capabilities it packs a punch with powerful precision. An incredibly thin case and ergonomic fit unrivalled by luxury watches of all brands. Audemars Piguet is one of the more innovative brands. With rubber bezels and straps that come in a variety of different options and can be quite easily interchanged they are a favorite of gentlemen who like to change their style and keep growing their repertoire no matter what. It is improving though particularly when it comes to watch straps for unique high quality luxury time pieces like the Audemars Piguet.
We have quite a few of these bespoke additions that you can change your watch up with. However the classic black on black with stainless steel watch is a go to. Traditional and functional this sportive looking watch can go from a day out on the links to your office no problem. It is a strong and powerful watch yet thin and refined at the same time. The chronograph AP Royal Oak Offshores like this one are watches of gentlemen who are uncompromising when it comes to what they want. Men that are industry leaders, high performance athletes and fashion icons in their own right as well. Not your traditional classic watch. While it does feature sub dials and other classic fine watch details such as the crown protecting bridge. There is little on this watch that is not the absolute picture of modernity. Unlike others this watch has personality.
Audemars Piguet luxury men’s watches
Audemars Piguet was founded in 1875 by Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet. The two banded together to create iconic men’s luxury watches. The brand took their last names to get the world wide well known AP logo. The company, much like our very own, is a family company and has remained that way throughout the centuries of its existence. It was no coincidence that these two men banded together to create such a signature brand. They both come from watch making families. International success came quickly for the pair of watch makers. Their talent and passion for haute horlogerie shone through in every movement and piece they produced. They achieved world wide fame early on opening branches all over from Berlin, to London, and Paris, all the way across the Atlantic to New York and Buenos Aires as well. They set their sails wide and expanded very quickly.

Rubber clad Audemar Piguet Royal Oak Offshore watch 259405k
This black rubber clad AP Royal Oak Offshore is a stunning iconic design. It has modern twists for a sporty and modern take on the classic men’s wrist watch. There is of course the octagonal bezel with the eight visible accent screws. The bezel itself is as the name of the watch suggests rubber clad in a black rubber. A 42 millimetre watch it has a generous size with a large dial. The dial itself is the trademarked “tapisserie” pattern. This unique squared off geometric textured dial is eye catching. It offers an exquisite contrast for the dial features as well. For example the three sub dials on this watch located at 12 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock.
Furthermore, these white sub dials match with the hour markers. Each one is a white unique font. Reminiscent of old school racing fonts the Arabic numerals give this 259405k a modern vintage touch. On the dial there is also a date window. This window is located at the 3 o’clock hour mark. If you have not noticed yet this dial is packed with information. Hence the large dial size and powerfully precise movements. It really is incredible how Audemars Piguet manages to place so much functionality into one case!
The rubber strap and deployment clasp
The rubber clad strap is an iconic feature of the AP Royal Oak Offshore. However the truly unique detail that makes this deployment clasp a true Audemars Piguet is the AP logo. As you can see above the clasp consists of a fitting set of AP logos. A hidden detail for a watch that is truly thought out from top to bottom.
Now the rubber clad feature is not only applicable to the strap. Nor are we referring to the iconic octagonal bezel either. It is the crown and push buttons. These are always the final touches with some fantastic detailing. The push pieces on the Royal Oak Offshore are guarded and fitted to the case. It gives them additional sturdiness powerful aesthetics. The straight lines add to the watch’s technical and high performance detailing. Further the crown itself has the iconic AP logo carved into the end and the beveled edges are also rubber clad. This makes it a lot easier to adjust time and settings.
Overall this watch fit incredibly well. It is comfortable even though it is a large size. Further the design with a protected crown ensures that the wear is not discomfortable on the end of your wrist. So if you are wearing this watch for long periods of time whether at the office or on a trip it feels just as comfortable as when you first put them on.
