Top Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Service Center

During the quartz crisis, Swiss watch manufacturers were scrambling to keep up with the evolving change in the watch industry. Many brands were trying everything they can to avoid going bankrupt due to the quartz watches coming out of Japan. Audemars Piguet was not to be spared during these difficult times and was tasked with developing the next best thing in the watch world. Their savior came in the form of Gerald Genta, who had rejuvenated watch brands prior to Audemars Piguet with designs for Omega (Constellation) and Patek Philippe (Golden Ellipse). Considered the masterpiece of his career, Gerald Genta designed what would become one of the most iconic watches in in the history of the industry, the Royal Oak. The inspiration for his design stems from a divers helmet, which explains the octagon shaped bezel and exposed rubber seal that is held together by 8 stationary screws. In 1972 the Royal Oak was introduced at Basel and has never skipped a beat in innovation and design.

Fast forward to 1989 and Audemars Piguet looks to shake up the industry once again with a robust version of their iconic Royal Oak model, their result is the Offshore. Emmanuel Gueit designed the more massive concept to be able to withstand extreme elements. Here at Gray and Sons, we pride ourselves in delivering the utmost quality in service to preserve and maintain the proper working conditions of all Audemars Piguet models. We recently had a Royal Oak Offshore come through the workshop for a maintenance service. Factory specifications indicate you should routinely have your Audemars Piguet serviced every 3-4 years taking into consideration the owners operating habits. This Offshore has a 100-meter dive capability with a thick 42 MM case measurement. The timepiece has a 50 hour power reserve with a date indicator at the 3 o'clock position. This Audemars Piguet has a 26470ST.OO.A801CR.01 reference that comes with an ivory-toned dial and a Mega Tapisserie pattern in brown. Our in-house watchmakers and polishers with over 150 years of combined experience were up to the task of servicing this extravagant timepiece. To begin the process, our master watchmaker carefully disassembles the case to separate the movement from the container housing all of the casing components. The case is then sent to our polisher for case refinishing to restore the luster of this Audemars Piguet. Now with the movement carefully out of the watch case, our master watchmaker begins disassembling the the components piece by piece. During which they are meticulously inspecting each part for wear or damage to properly ensure the lifespan of the service.

Once completely torn down to the last screw, the movement is gently placed into our ultrasonic cleaner which will use vibration in three different solutions. During the process, old coagulated oil is dissolved and components are cleaned and returned to their original clean state. Once the movement parts are dried our master watchmaker begins assembly by carefully putting together each component in their appropriate order while checking pivot end shakes and freedom for accurate function. During reassembly of the Royal Oak Offshore, the watchmaker uses four different synthetic oils to lubricate each point of friction and rotation through factory specifications. Movement is then tested for timing accuracy and amplitude to ensure all proper adjustments were made during the reassembly process. With a freshly clean and regulated movement, it is time to return the movement into its beautiful refinished case where it will again be checked for functionality and display. The Audemars Piguet is water tested to its suggested depths to ensure water resistance. The watch will then be put on time and quality controlled over the course of 1-2 weeks to observe its power reserve and automatic system. Gray and Sons is proud to be your choice for Audemars Piguet services and repairs to return your timepiece to its original working condition.
