A re-release of the original Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph, the Ref. 26237ST.OO.1000ST.01 is a glistening all-steel watch beautifully paired with a complementary cobalt blue dial. Featuring the signature eight-sided bezel with visible hexagonal screws, this iteration of the Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph boasts a protected screw-locked crown at 3 o’clock between two push-buttons, all of which are rubber-clad in blue to match the watch face.
AP’s beloved “Petite Tapisserie” pattern adorns the dial, as do three blue sub-dials at 6, 9, and 12 o’clock and a date window at the 3 o’clock mark. White gold applied hour-markers stand out against the watch face, as well as the timepiece’s central Royal Oak hands, which are coated with luminescence for improved legibility. Rounding off the dial’s monochromatic design, a blue inner bezel holds the watch’s tachymeter scale, which is indicated via the watch’s central extra-thin, white chronograph hand.
The self-winding Caliber 3126/3840 powers the Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph Re-edition. Boasting a 22k gold rotor, this movement beats at a frequency of 3Hz or 21,600 vibrations per hour and offers the wearer a power reserve of 50 hours. A virtual match to the original model, this re-release confirms the Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph as a timeless classic.
