Audemars Piguet celebrates its musical partnership with five new Royal Oak Offshore Music Editions.
Five pieces – two in 37mm and three in 43mm – feature colorful VU Meter versions of the signature Royal Oak family Tapisserie dials, either luminous print or colored gemstones, with applied 18-karat white gold hour markers and the AP monogram.
The Royal Oak strap studs have a knurled texture “reminiscent of plugs”, while the crown guard is inspired by mixing console faders. Each watch comes with four interchangeable blue, black and teal, yellow and green mosaic patterned rubber straps with AP titanium clasps.
The titanium model with a blue VU Meter dial is available in 37mm or 43mm, both limited to 500 pieces. Both models feature a titanium and sapphire caseback engraved with “Limited Edition of 500 Pieces”.
Two 18-carat white gold models – again in 37 and 43 mm cases, but this time without limits – feature blue aventurine bezels and invisible dials set with Harmony-cut tsavorites, chrycholites, rubies and sapphires in blue, green, orange and yellow colors. The 37 mm model uses 166 stones (3.7 carats), while the 43 mm model uses 230 stones (6.15 carats).
The latest version has a 43 mm black ceramic case with titanium studs, crown protection and a buckle on the strap. The circulation is limited to 250 copies.
The watch is equipped with two new in-house automatic movements with a frequency of 4 Hz; Caliber 5909 for the 37mm watch and caliber 4309 for the 43mm versions with a power reserve of 60 and 70 hours respectively. Both are versions of the updated 2022 movement introduced in the Royal Oak collection to commemorate the model’s 50th anniversary. Prices start at $32,100 for the 37mm Royal Oak Offshore Music Edition Titanium.
