AUDEMARS PIGUET Audemars Piguet also launched a number of ROO automatic chronographs in 2018, which are mainly 42mm styles, with only one 44mm version being the exception. Compared to the 42mm version, which has both precious metal and stainless steel versions, there are many options for color matching. The 44mm is challenged with a signature stainless steel case, but it is special because it is replaced with a green ceramic bezel, and even the rubber strap is opened. The brand precedent was replaced by camouflage design. Many people’s eyes were bright after the launch of the full-fashioned taste. In 2019, the brand continued this momentum and released the ROO chronograph with three camouflage straps in one breath. This time In addition to the modified green camouflage, there are also blue camouflage and chocolate camouflage, which makes it more troublesome to want to start this.
Audemars Piguet is one of the pioneers in the research and development of ceramic materials for altarpieces. Although it has been relatively less focused on ceramic materials in recent years, since green ceramics in 2018, there are new colors like blue ceramics in 2019, which is refreshing.
Feature 1: Green camouflage is not enough, plus blue camouflage
In the past, the Royal Oak offshore chronograph, regardless of the 42mm or 44mm version, is still more traditional and conservative. At most, it is a case made of different materials and a two-tone faceplate. However, in recent years, Audemars Piguet has been slow on the diving watch series. Slowly started to inject more bold color schemes to make people refreshing. The new 44mm ROO chronograph in 2019 seems to have inadvertently and unintentionally infected this young and free atmosphere. First of all, it is the first series in the series to see the blue ceramic bezel. The blue ceramics are also included in the handles and crowns, etc.), and the blue dial is full of ocean-like vitality. These details have made this look unique.
If you are a bit deterred by the blue camouflage strap, the brand also prepared a plain blue strap that can be replaced to provide the wearer with a different style
Feature 2: The rubber strap can also follow the trend line
At present, the 44mm ROO chronograph on the line is mainly equipped with a rubber strap (a few models use crocodile leather straps), but the color of the rubber strap is probably black and white. The 44mm ROO chronograph is different. After 2018, Audemars Piguet has continued the topic of camouflage straps. The combination of blue camouflage and blue ceramic rings contrasts the personality of green camouflage jungle, showing a different masculine taste. Combined with the offshore type, which originally emphasized the rough and bold style, with the case of camouflage rubber bands like this, it also allowed Audemars Piguet’s watches to penetrate the younger ethnic group.
3126/3840 chronograph movement, 100 meters waterproof specifications, these are common specifications of ROO chronograph, but from the design of the automatic disk can be seen that it is different from the 42mm style
Feature three: the movement echoes the personality of the sports watch
The 3126/3840 movement on the watch is formed after Audemars Piguet’s 3120 movement plus a timing module. It has a small dial with three eyes on the left. Although it is not a novel design, it is a bit special because The small second dial is located at 12 o’clock, which is different from the fixed position of the small second dial that we generally see in the left three-eye design. The 44mm version of the automatic disc has cutouts on both sides, and only the word ‘AP’ is engraved in the middle. The surface of the automatic disc is also black-plated. In contrast, the 42mm automatic disc is solid and exposed in K gold. Decorative totems engraved with the emblem of Audemars Piguet, in terms of visual perception, the 44mm has a sports watch fu.
