In its latest range of 42mm diving chronographs, Audemars Piguet sticks to good old stainless steel. The case back is in glareproofed sapphire crystal case. It is highlighted with black ceramic pushpieces and screw-locked crowns. The pushpiece-guards fitted to the case increase the sturdiness of the watch.
