Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver 42mm 15703ST.OO.A002CA.01 (Out of Production)
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver — Ref 15703ST. We are attracted by its relative simplicity in both form and function. The look is monochromatic – black dial, black pushers and a black strap paired with the signature AP Royal Oak brushed stainless steel case. The Royal Oak Offshore Diver tells the basic time and date and has a dive-time measurement scale via an inner-rotating bezel.
The 15703ST has a 42mm brushed stainless steel case (13.75mm thick) that is water resistant to 300 meters. The dial, strap and crowns are executed in black and black rubber. The watch actually features two black rubber crowns — one at 3 o’clock position to set the time and another one at 10 o’clock which controls the inner rotating dive bezel.
The bezel features a minute scale on which five- and one-minute periods are clearly highlighted. The wearer can only turn the bezel by deliberately unscrewing the rubber crown.
The dial is marked by baton shaped hour-markers that are also luminescent. The hour hand is distinguished by two additional bands of luminescent coating on the side.
