AUDEMARS PIGUET Royal Oak Offshore DIVER by KINDLER & THORPE

By TLex So this is what happens when a master engraver is let loose on a ROO Diver! Wow! And why? For me the ROO Diver is at the pinnacle of my dive watch collection and is about as good as it gets, so why anyone would want to mess with it, is beyond me.



Nevertheless, if obsessively detailed hand engraved horological artistry, that has been painstakingly hand finished by the World's leading specialists in their field, is your thing, then look no further as there is likely none better than Kindler & Thorpe.



Their work is strictly dedicated to only the most prestigous watch brands such as Audemars Piguet, Hublot, IWC, Patek Philippe and Rolex. They use brand new factory sealed models as donor watches that have been carefully selected for suitability (not sure how suitable the ROO Diver is, though?) with some watches being subjected to no less than 100 hours at the engravers bench!



Their inspiration comes from some of the finest engraving featured on the World's most expensive firearms and is influenced by elite Bavarian, Georgian and Victorian architecture as well as British Heraldry dating back to the 5th century.



Kindler & Thorpe was established in 2010 by two long standing business associates, Herman Kindler and Paul Thorpe. They offer a unique 5 year guarantee with every brand new timepiece.

  1. The ROODiver is the pinnacle of your dive collection, not the DSSD?
