You shouldn’t confuse this watch with Offshore Volcano which also belongs to the Royal Oak Offshore collection. These models are similar, but they have absolutely different natures.

The case, back plate and bezel of Royal Oak Offshore Lava are all made of a black PVD covered steel. The crown with label is made of stainless steel, while two buttons of chronograph are protected by black rubber. Same material is placed below the bezel to protect the movement and dial. The  strap with orange stitches is made of black alligator leather, it combines with bright orange elements on the dial.

The black and orange dial colors give to this luxury watch a feeling of something sportive. The orange hour, minute and second hands point at big numeral hour markers. Three black chronograph’s sub-dials (12 hour counter, 30 minute counter, subsidiary seconds) are placed at 6, 9, and 12 o’clock respectively. A date window is featured at 3 o’clock. Orange tachymeter scale lays along the edge of the dial. Orange elements provide fine readability – thus they are decoration and function at the same time.
