The 15703 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 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, as you can see here:
The AP 15730 price is approximately $15,000. In summary — I WANT THIS WATCH!
It is worth remembering that Audemars Piguet actually invented the first high-end sports watch in 1972, which it named Royal Oak, and that it achieved the unprecedented feat of raising steel to the rank of a noble metal on a par with gold. In 1992, the octagon then took on its extreme sports appearance with the advent of the Royal Oak Off shore. This collection makes ample use of rubber that is often associated with steel, and sometimes even with gold. Its dials feature a distinctive criss-cross or grid pattern named “Méga Tapisserie ”.
