Editor-in-Chief Ishii's ``A Splendid Life of Extraneous Thoughts''

I want to do that, I want to do this. I want to enjoy life even more! Based on such greedy thoughts, we will deliver the daily life of editor-in-chief Ishii, who enjoys life full of distractions. This time we will talk about everyone's favorite watch. We present a shocking work commemorating the 30th anniversary of Audemars Piguet's masterpiece, Royal Oak Offshore.

A masterpiece that was born in 1993 and instantly created a craze for thick watches is the well-known Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore. There are many people who admire her fearless and sophisticated look and think, ``Someday, I'll be like that too!'' “Royal Oak Offshore” is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. So, we would like to introduce two "shocking works" that will serve as commemorative models.

First, here! "Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Black Ceramic 42mm"! First in collection history! The model's case and bracelet are finished with black ceramic, giving it a tough, sporty feel while also being extremely modern. The petite tapestry dial is also unified in black, supporting that impression. White is used for the hands, sub-dial tachymeter, etc., which not only ensures visibility but also gives a cool impression from a fashion perspective. I'm having so much fun coordinating this.

Case diameter: 42mm, case thickness: 15.3mm, case and bracelet material: black ceramic, water resistant to 100m, power reserve of approximately 70 hours. 10.45 million yen (estimated price). Exclusive to boutiques.

Next up is the "Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph 43mm." The “black gold” color scheme with 18K gold and black ceramic is the ultimate luxury! During the interview, another member of the media said, ``It really looks like LEON!'' and I nodded my head too (lol). The mega tapestry dial also adds to the gorgeous impression.

Case diameter: 43mm, case thickness: 14.4mm, case material: black ceramic, alligator strap (rubber strap included), water resistant to 100m, power reserve of approximately 70 hours. 7.48 million yen (estimated price).

According to designer Gerald Genta, creator of the Royal Oak, ``The Royal Oak Offshore is a beast of a Royal Oak on steroids.'' The 30th anniversary model of the "Royal Oak Offshore" has evolved since then, with a cool and even more luxurious feel. You can't help but pay attention to it!
