All packed away behind a skeleton back and rose gold case. The aesthetics of this watch are impressive. Modern and slick the rose gold watch is contrasted by the black and black dial and rubber strap. Let’s take a look at this piece.
Audemars Piguet, Le Brassus from Switzerland to the world
In the heart of the valley in de Joux, Audemars Piguet was born. The brand that is recognized for masterfully crafted watches. An experience of ownership unmatched by other brands. From their beginnings in the land of watch making. Audemars Piguet was a partnership of masters. In 1875 Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet came together to create iconic men’s luxury watches in Switzerland. We all know how well known the Swiss are for their watch making abilities. However these two were a very particular pair indeed. They both came from watch making families. And their company, much like our very own Diamonds by Raymond Lee, is a family company. It has impressively remained a family company throughout the centuries of fine watch making and expansion. Audemars and Piguets’ talent and passion for haute horlogerie shines through to this day. In every movement and fine time piece they produce.
They opened branches around the world from Berlin, to London, and Paris, all the way across the Atlantic to New York and Buenos Aires as well. This massive growth came early. As it does for those who craft incredible and unmatched pieces. They create watches that are strong and powerful watch yet thin and refined at the same time. Audemars Piguet is one of the most innovative luxury watch brands. Their watches are truly a feat of design and engineering capabilities. Each one packs a punch with powerful precision. Further they are at the cutting edge of design and men’s fashion. As can be seen with this rose gold master piece. It is a slick modern look with contrasting black detailing and their very own rose gold tint. Audemars Piguet embodies a spirit of independence. This is quite clear in their styles. While still remaining true to heritage and lineage.
The black tapisserie dial with rose gold hour markers are a unique accent. Along with the sub dial and hands the touch of rose gold adds a glimmer to the contrasting colors.
Rose gold men’s luxury watches
From all the historical ties and tradition comes a splash of modernity. The color of this watch is not your traditional stainless steel. Nor is it your usual yellow gold watch. This AP is a stunning rose gold time piece. The innovative material that can be seen more and more often in luxury accessories like men’s watches. It is becoming ever more popular even outranking the traditional and well loved metals.
While it is a particularly new style it remains a happy medium between a classic icon and a modern time piece. There are other watches that are much further down the evolution chain. For example the Audemars Piguet forged carbon watch we reviewed here. While the rose gold style is new and modern it stays within the fine metals family. Meanwhile AP pushes ever further in their pursuit of the best in class and finest design. So do not worry if you think the rose gold watch is too modern. It is actually a happy medium with a lot of room for bringing it further modern or dial it back a notch to a more traditional look. The rubber clad strap is the secret. For a more modern and spiced up look a new Horus rubber strap can do the trick. They have patterns, styles and colors of all kinds.
Otherwise a more traditional bracelet in a fine metal can take this modern watch a dial back. The black rubber clad details like on the bezel for example can all be removed for a monochromatic look. So either way this versatile material can be turned up or dialed back as you wish. It is after all an Audemars Piguet. A watch not just for a lifetime but for generations. Their family company commitment goes far down to every detail.
Royal Oak Offshore rubber clad watches
One of Audemars Piguet’s most renowned collections the Royal Oak Offshore watches are a sporty style. Moving away from the traditional classics this watch collection really showcases what their craftsmen are capable of. Strongly masculine with the straight hard lines and iconic geometric octagonal shape the edges of this watch keep you on an edge. An eye catching piece to say the least, this is the type of watch for men who know how to command attention. No matter where they go. It is a slightly more prominent look than their traditional watches and thus has a couple of details to set it apart. Particularly the rubber clad versions. With the highest quality rubber details the Royal Oak Offshore is a watch in its own category. A black rubber cover on the bezel makes it more prominent. A feature for sportive wear and comfort. It matches the rubber clad strap.
A mixture of tradition and avant garde the Audemars Piguet creed shines through the Royal Oak Offshore watches. They are true to their tradition. However everything about these watches is the latest cutting edge in technology, power and functionality. It is the blend of staying true to the company’s roots and breaking all of the rules. Once they are mastered it is time to break them after all. And that is exactly what Audemars Piguet does with these rubber clad watches.
