By TLex AP Said “Let there be color!” – and there was color! A colorful new collection of ROO Diver Chronographs have joined the ROO Diver family, which just last year received a bit of a revision itself with a new exhibition caseback and a new white dial variant.
Now into its sixth year of production, the ROO Diver has been released in a total of 5 versions over the past few years; each can traces its roots directly back to AP’s first divers model, the ROO Scuba. [CARBON] [CERAMIC] [FORGED] [QEII] [SCUBA] [STEEL] [WHITE]
Four bold new colors including: blue, green, orange and yellow have been chosen for the collection. The blue version with the yellow accents is definitely the best looking of the bunch with the orange version running a close second. The blue version is Ref. #26703ST.OO.A027CA.01, the orange version is Ref. #26703ST.OO.A070CA.01.
The ROO diver Chrono features a Stainless steel case with a glare-proofed Sapphire crystal and caseback, black ceramic chrono-pushers and a screwdown crowns. It is water-resistant to 300 meters. The diving function indicator has been highlighted in color for better readability at depths of up to 300 meters.
Its dial is with AP’s signature “Méga Tapisserie” (waffle) pattern, color-matching counters, white gold applied hour-markers and Royal Oak hands (yellow minutes hand for blue version) with luminescent coating, blue rotating inner bezel with diving scale and zone from 60 to 15 minutes in yellow.
Powering the ROO Diver Chrono is an AP Calibre 3124 / 3841 Manufacture movement with: 59 jewels, a frequency of 3,00 Hz (21'600 alternances/hour) and a Monobloc rotor in 22-carat gold.
The new Royal Oak Offshore Diver Chronograph is presented on a color-matching rubber divers strap. They are available exclusively from AP Boutiques Worldwide.
