Having turned 20 last year, Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph has been getting a few facelifts from the 2012 version that horologists have lauded since its introduction. Now, the latest iteration has been released: the self-winding camouflage chronograph.

It’s a timepiece AP calls “daring” and a reinterpretation of an iconic gentleman’s classic, owing to its contrasting colour and brazen aesthetic.

The 44mm stainless steel watch — a 3mm increase from the 41mm 2017 model — features AP’s signature octagonal bezel in green ceramic, a green ceramic screw locked crown and push-pieces, and a camouflage strap.

It all combines to create a rugged, military aesthetic. One for the man on the go. Or a anyone playing soldiers, or dressing up as Rambo for the weekend — which you never know when it might happen: stag dos focus on all sorts of genres and thematic variations these days.

It’s an interesting diversion from the classic stainless steel, titanium and platinum and strong navys and blacks that AP usually decorate the Royal Oak in — the blinged-up 18-carat white gold version, notwithstanding — and a diversification of the aesthetics of what has come to be lauded as a contemporary classic with watch collectors and aficionados.

The complications on the new piece include a beige dial with the Mega Tapisserie pattern, brown counters, a brown external zone and white gold applied hour-markers and hands, offering an extra element of pizazz.

The latest iteration also comes with a khaki rubber strap should you want to swap out the standard fabric camo strap it comes with.
