Audemars Piguet Offshore Divers Forged Carbon

Feb 21, 2021,02:20 AM

I had this watch in 2013 and with the fear of fiber and resins falling off like the issue I had with my Grand Prix offshore I sold it . Talk about seller’s remorse! Light , practical and economical were the right words to explain the timepiece . After almost 8 years now I do have an opportunity to get the forged carbon version . Now thinking to make it a midlife crisis piece by adding a yellow rubber and buy it or should I just let it be one of those piece which one loves and appreciates but never pulls the trigger ...
Iam very tempted and what are your thoughts about it with the yellow rubber

Eye catching on the yellow

I love it on both. It is one I sure flirted with a time or two, but never acquired.

As long as the bezel isn’t CF, you prolly won’t have any issues—

This is why AP went away from CF bezels. The case will almost never take a big hit. I have the offshore chrono in this mix of materials and it is fine. Very cool watch - you should get it, yellow strap and all. Life’s too short.

I had seen photos here and there but recently had the opportunity to see and try the chronograph. Gorgeous piece! The weight and wrist feel immediately won me- bye bye Deepsea. I investigated the forged carbon and have zero worry about it. Won’t shatter l...
