the macro on AP's website does look much better than the other photos i have seen. I do like it in this pic. You can see a lot of depth in the dial.

I'm joking a little bit with Hublot comments... no matter I dislike cutted bezel, I have no doubt that the movement and finishing will be perfect, but also lots of Hublot Ferrari collaboration similarity in this one...

If AP came first with this one, and then Hublot released the Ferrari tourbillon we will see a ton of "Hublot copy/pasted AP design again" comments all over again...

Canít wait to see IRL pics.

Also if the spec is correct either it uses a different strap or the AP tech team have built the image with a strap off a 42mm
Ok, so then no ceramic for the 42s, sorry guys.

I don't mind the new bezel, but I think the cutout should have served to reveal more of the mechanisms rather than just as an aesthetic choice.

Hey mate it started in this thread with 42mm... there is two months to SIHH, maybe it will grow to U-Boat dimensions by then

AP website doesnít explicitly say the new beast will be limited, whereas with the two tourbs it says limited to 50. Iím thinking maybe it will just be boutique only and low production ala the 15202.

Anyone feeling froggy?

Interesting. I was in the NY boutique today and they said February was the time frame and that it would be limited but I didnít get a specific number. I think they will be making more than 50 as the website does not list it as limited edition.

I think you are correct Tom in the fact it may be like the 15202.

"What to say about this Royal Oak Offshore re-edition? Well, in short, Audemars Piguet nailed it… Simple as that. The brand didn’t fall into the trap of modernization or evolution. Yes, the movement and the clasp are different, but who can complain about that. In terms of style, it gives echo to what is nowadays an icon, what used to be a disruptive watch, which ended in being a trendsetter. And to be honest, it looks super cool. Price will be CHF 25,000 and it is a non-limited edition." From monochrome-watches

There are a few occasions where pieces have been listed as non LE's and then later are changed to LE's and it appears it might be a retroactive designation. If the pieces are not numbered they may see how many initially sell and then decide on the production run. So maybe they haven't decided how many they will make yet. If its not going to be part of the permanent collection which i don't think it will, the edition size might depend on demand.

Sounds a bit far fetched but both special edition Ti/Pt watches (SE ROC and SE 33mm quartz) were not listed as LE's at launch per AP's website. Hodinkee's article at launch specifically stated the SE ROC was not limited but just a boutique exclusive. Nearly a year later AP's website changed and said it was a LE of 500.

Initial and then updated AP description a almost a year later....

AP are obviously hedging their bets - makes good business sense really.

i agree. Im just speculating we may not know for sure how many there will be until much later. It would be nice to know how hard it is going to be to get in advance, but im not complaining. I know I want one. I dont care if its an edition of 50 or 1000 and would probably prefer it be a larger edition so i can actually find one.

I hear you - the more the better as I think demand will be high for such a great looking classic ROO, especially if itís got the newer movement, improved clasp and hopefully ceramic crown & pushers.
I really fancy one too

Canít comment on the clasp as I donít know much about the evolution of it on the 42 ROO, but the crown and pushers are sadly still rubber clad (would of been great in blue ceramic)

Yes guys the watch is exactly as released in 93 except for some minor font changes and updated clasp and movement.

Also has a solid case back. This will be more of a niche WIS piece.

I like the fact its a faithful reissue. However if they updated the movement I see no harm in adding a display case back. That is the only complaint i have with it.

Rubber pushers are not ideal, but for a re-issue it is fine IMO

I generally agree about the display caseback but hey Iíve seen plenty of 3120s. I would appreciate it more if they keep production similar to the jumbo.

Not sure what demand will be like. Are there ROO purists?

For me it all comes down to getting a nice blue petite tappisserie dial. I lamented the move away from the pantograph dial on the diver. To me this feature alongside the expertly polished case is the calling card of an RO.

I can't catch a break. I had to choose between a display case back or a pantograph dial on my diver. I went with the display case back. This time I would get the pantograph dial and not a display back. Ugh

They already did the reissue with clear caseback but limited to 20 collectors models...

There is a pic of one of the first 100 Offshores ever with no Offshore engraving on back, other with Offshore engraving and one of 20 limited pieces with clear caseback... don't exactly know if this one have ceramic pushers...
