In front of a full-capacity crowd at Théâtre du Léman in Geneva, Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer perfect replica Audemars Piguet was honoured with the “Aiguille d’Or”, a prestigious award given to the most impressive watch across all categories at the annual Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.
Swiss made fake Audemars Piguet’s CEO François-Henry Bennahmias took to the stage to receive the award for the luxury watchmaker’s submission, Code 11.59 by super clone Audemars Piguet Ultra- Complication Universelle (RD#4).
The high end fake watch is a contemporary expression of the storied Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer’s collection; a refined, modern piece that encapsulates Swiss super clone Audemars Piguet’s commitment to technical innovation presented in the manufacture’s very first ultra-complicated self-winding wristwatch. “A big thank you to all the people who put their generosity at the service of watchmaking, both those whose faces we know well and those behind the scenes.” François-Henry Bennahmias, cheap replica Audemars Piguet Chief Executive Officer said.
“Nothing would be possible without their collective genius and collaboration. After 29 years in the watchmaking business, I’d like to dedicate this victory to the teams, to Ilaria who will succeed me, to Jasmine Audemars and to the founding families who have supported me.”
Presented with a diameter of 34.3mm, the RD#4 is an impressive feat of engineering that still maintains a deft nod to fine watchmaking tradition.
Through its ultra-thin perpetual calendar movement designed to take as little space as possible; a Grande Sonnerie Supersonnerie for expertly amplified sound; a split-second flyback chronograph, reshaped for maximum efficiency; and a flying tourbillon for fully optimised flow of energy, the #RD4 represents three decades of research and development undertaken by the best quality replica Audemars Piguet team, who set out to group the “Manufacture’s horological savoir-faire” into a singular movement.
The team incorporated the Manufacture’s three most recent innovations into the RD#4 – the Supersonnerie technology unveiled in 2015; the ultra-thin perpetual calendar movement launched in 2018; and the oscillator with increased amplitude premiered on the two high quality fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon Extra-Thin models released in 2022.
What makes a dial? If the five new timepieces by perfect replica Audemars Piguet are anything to go by, not much at all.
On a 37mm 1:1 fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding in 18-carat yellow gold, the hour and minute markers are nowhere to be seen; neither is the date aperture. Without the indices, just three gold hands remain to share the burden of time-telling. The other two features on the dial are purely aesthetic additions—signatures at 12 and six o’clock reading ‘Audemars Piguet’ and ‘1017 Alyx 9SM’ respectively.
The latter signature indicates the origin of this new collection. Born out of a collaboration with Matthew Williams, the founder and designer of independent fashion label 1017 Alyx 9SM, the complete lineup comprises two Royal Oaks, two luxury replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshores and a unique Royal Oak piece that was auctioned for charity during the collection’s launch party in Tokyo in August.
Even the brand’s iconic tapissserie dial design has been sacrificed in the name of minimalism (purists, do stay calm). In its place is a vertical satin finishing that CEO François-Henry Bennahmias has revealed took nine runs—instead of the usual two— to perfect. It’s a necessary effort on an uncluttered dial, where the finishing of the gold becomes the focal point.
This isn’t the first time Williams has put his own spin on Swiss movement replica Audemars Piguet’s timepieces. His first attempt was with his personal piece, a vintage Royal Oak that he sent to watch customisation studio Mad Paris to turn completely black. “I wanted a black one,” he says simply. “It was something I wanted to see exist.” Eventually, he started offering blackened high quality fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oaks at Alyx. It caught the attention of Bennahmias, who approached him to initiate the current partnership.
Describing his designs for this collection as ”a continuation of the watches I originally made for Alyx”, Williams explains his pared-back approach. “When touching an iconic silhouette like these watches, it’s really challenging to do something that’s timeless and timely. I handled it with a lot of respect and care. The subtle alterations to the top quality fake Audemars Piguet watches CA were more about playing with light and celebrating their form and shape through brushing the metal in different ways, through matte or shine.”
Light, in turn, appeals to him because “it’s infinite and understandable. It doesn’t need words; it’s more a feeling. It’s something I naturally want to play with.” Even the blackened timepieces he originally made were a manifestation of this instinct.
Beating within the aforementioned Swiss movement replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding is Calibre 5909. Introduced in 2022, the movement is just four millimetres thick and gives the timepiece a power reserve of 60 hours. The second Royal Oak piece is a 41mm Royal Oak Selfwinding Chronograph in 18-carat yellow gold. It houses Calibre 4409 without a date indication and has a power reserve of 70 hours.
The two high end fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore models are both 42mm Selfwinding Chronographs, one in 18-carat white gold and the other in 18-carat yellow gold. Equipped with Calibre 4404, they come with an interchangeable black rubber strap and a power reserve of 70 hours. All four replica watches for sale feature a 22-carat yellow or white gold oscillating weight specially developed for the collection, which is engraved with the 1017 Alyx 9SM signature.
The unique piece is a 41mm Audemars Piguet Royal Oak fake for men with a two-tone case and bracelet in 18-carat yellow gold and stainless steel. Powered by Calibre 4409, its gold dial is coated in black PVD with a vertical satin finishing—a nod to the blackened watches Williams used to make.
The minimalist dial feels even more austere in the chronographs; Williams and the Audemars Piguet replica for sale CA team made the polarising decision to remove the chronograph counters, so that the only indication of the complication are three miniature hands ‘floating’ at six, nine and 12 o’clock.
In the four years since its launch, the Code 11.59 by perfect replica Audemars Piguet collection has become an integral pillar of the brand’s watch offerings.
Featuring a substantial assortment of models — from time-only functions up to and including perpetual calendars and tourbillons — the range would seem to have it all.
But until now, the case sizes in the collection were limited to 41 millimeters and 42 millimeters.
Now, the brand is offering a slimmed-down, pink-gold 1:1 fake Audemars Piguet CA that measures a more petite 38 millimeters across.
“In keeping with luxury replica Audemars Piguet’s focus on watches designed for all wearers, it’s important to present a product range that is vast and versatile,” says Ginny Wright, the CEO of Audemars Piguet Americas. “The introduction of the 38 mm case size to the cheap fake Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet collection is significant as it represents our commitment to continuous evolution.”
This new timepiece has not only evolved in size, but it features an embossed dial in a rich ivory tone, exclusively crafted for the collection. (A second version of the new watch is available in purple.)

Swiss guilloché craftsman Yann von Kaenel was specially commissioned by CA cheap super clone Audemars Piguet to collaborate on the new watch’s textured dial. The mesmerizing wave-like pattern is achieved by piercing the metal with hundreds of tiny holes.
The color is applied by the physical vapor deposition technique, also known as PVD, which ensures a saturated tone with a gradient structure, while still allowing the details of the intricate design to be visible.
The high quality replica Audemars Piguet’s impressive Calibre 5900 self-winding movement powers its pink-gold hour, minute, and seconds hands, as well as the date, which is visible through an aperture at 3 o’clock.
Slim, faceted, and polished hour markers add to the elegance of the design. A shiny large-scale alligator strap matches the dial, and is secured by a pink-gold buckle engraved with “Audemars Piguet.” An additional ivory textured rubber strap with a calfskin lining is available in boutiques.
“The beauty of the Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 replica for sale by Audemars Piguet collection is in its capacity to be worn for any occasion, by any person,” says Wright. “Designed with slimmer wrists in mind, the new iterations meet both the needs of our clients and the interests of modern collectors, opening the door for a broader community to discover the collection and brand.”
Opening the celebrity theme was the 1999 1:1 fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore ‘End of Days’ Ref. 25770SN.OO.0001KE.01, which was also the very first limited edition of the Royal Oak Offshore collection and the first serial-produced perfect replica Audemars Piguetwatch with black PVD coating.
Legend has it that this CA luxury fake Audemars Piguet was designed at the request of Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has been a partner of the brand since 1998. Schwarzenegger wanted to appear with an imposing watch in the action movie End of Days, for which four cheap fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Ref. 25770SN.OO.0001.AR.01 were made, and which Arnold Schwarzenegger wore during the filming of the movie.
In addition, another unique Ref. 25770SN.OO.0050.AR.01 was made with a yellow aramid fiber strap instead of the black one. The launch of the aaa quality replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore End of Days limited edition coincided with the release of the movie, so there were no problems with the sale of a fairly large limited edition of 500 pieces.
Now this high quality copy watch has the status of a collector’s item. Especially top quality fake watches that have preserved the good condition of the original black PVD coating, which begins to wear away on the edges of the case with prolonged use of the watch.
The watch featured a strap made of aramid fibers (Kevlar), the caseback was solid and blackened with an engraved inscription “Serie Limitee” and a standard engraving “Royal Oak Offshore”. Swiss movement replica Audemars Piguet CA obviously remembers the success and importance of the Offshore End of Days when it comes to the Offshore collection as highlighted by the 2023 release of the wholesale copy Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph Ref. 26420CE.OO.A005VE.01, the Offshore ‘End of Days’ commemorative edition. This edition is limited again to 500 pieces.
Like the faultless little black dress or crisp white shirt, there are some wardrobe must-haves no modern woman can do without. Accessories are no different—think: golden hoops, a smart carry-all—all cherries on top of a well-appointed wardrobe.
But unlike other accessories, a fake watch plays a role in a life well-lived, well-travelled, and, well busy, no pair of earrings or boots can match. A timepiece is a companion for every day, no matter the weather, the occasion or what the hours ahead hold. Designed to be both practical and a marker of a knowing aesthete, high-end mechanical replica watch ca transcends trends and remains a steadfast ally through modern life.
This notion is at the forefront of best 1:1 replica Audemars Piguet’s philosophy when it comes to their timepieces. In fact, in the Swiss manufacturer’s long history, their watches have led the way, demanding ingenious design and development to meet the demands of modern women and men across the globe.
Case in point: The perennial icon that is the cheap fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak; a testament to timeless design. The elegant lines and innovative construction of this watch has ensured the women who reach for it enjoy both the jewellery-like artistry and practicalities such a piece affords.
In 1976, the first Audemars Piguet Royal Oak replica for women debuted, a slimmer and more refined take on the original designed by Gérald Genta, released in 1972. The brainchild of Jacqueline Dimier, the then Head of Product Design atSwiss made fake Audemars Piguet, the Royal Oak for women was a study in innovation and miniaturisation, echoes of which can be seen in more modern offerings.
Take the stainless steel iterations of the aaa quality replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak available today; the Seclfwinding 37mm stainless steel with grey dial and diamonds; the 34mm two-tone stainless steel and pink gold and the 34mm stainless steel, for example. Each piece a testament to the craftsmanship high end fake Audemars Piguet is synonymous with but serves up a more refined and feminine take thanks to the use of stainless steel paired with pink gold and diamonds.
Similarly, the Selfwinding 34mm pink gold with diamonds and the 37mm pink gold with Bleu Nuit, Nuage 50 dial and diamonds strike a balance between the jewellery-like craftsmanship and blend of tradition the Swiss manufacturer has long pursued and perfected.
That transcendent approach to design was wildly apparent when Florentine jewellery designer Carolina Bucci was invited to reinterpret the best replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak for women in celebration of its 40th anniversary.
Naturally, Bucci was equal parts excited and apprehensive when tasked with the mission: “A modern reinterpretation is more difficult and complicated than it appears. How do you alter perfection? By adding nothing and taking nothing away. But I had to reinterpret the look, I couldn’t just add an inscription saying ‘40 years’ on the dial!”
Bucci’s masterpiece called on a gold hammering technique, known as the Florentine Finish, which lends the timepiece, so says Bucci, a “sparkle as though it were encrusted with diamonds.” The interpretation became a unique and remarkable Swiss movement copy Audemars Piguet CA, the perfect blend of jewellery-like elegance and technical mastery that serves as the ultimate companion for life on the go.
And that’s just what these top quality replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak iterations offer, a practical counterpart to a busy life that will transition from day to night with ease and add a touch of quiet elegance and timelessness to any and every look.
In pictures, the 16202XT, a new release with a satin-finished and polished titanium case, was one of my least favorite 1:1 fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oaks in recent memory based solely on the dial. With such a memorable, known design, the dial really can be the make or break (the 15202BC and 16202BC are perfect examples of archetypical dial design). The Swiss made replica Audemars Piguet 16202XT’s smoked burgundy dial, sunburst finish, and 18k pink gold hour markers and hands had me convinced that going so far with such a loud dial detracts from one of the strongest parts of the cheap copy Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, that the case itself should be the standout design element.
Turns out, you can have your cake and eat it too. The question is, do you like the flavor? In person, you obviously notice the striking red dial of the aaa quality replica Audemars Piguet 16202XT. It’s still not my favorite choice, but I can see the variety it adds to the lineup, something that brands seem to be striving for in adding more breath to their lineups than I can remember in recent history. The sunburst isn’t as prominent in soft light (you’ll notice that it largely disappears in macro photos in my portable light box) but at certain angles pops out. Nitpicking, the red date wheel doesn’t work as well as color-matched releases because it sits right at the place where the “ombré” effect starts to fade to black. But any distraction the dial provides fades pretty quickly and your eyes quickly go to the bezel and the bracelet studs, both polished to a level I’d be hard-pressed to find on another core release from Swiss made fake Audemars Piguet. That’s because the material used in both those locations and on the caseback surround and polished and satin-finished BMG caseback frame is made from glass.
Well, bulk metallic glass, that is. Swiss movement replica Audemars Piguet used the palladium-based bulk metallic glass (BMG) for the first time in their 2021 Only Watch release, the 15202XT, but BMG has been around since the 1960s and is used in microelectronics and golf, among other places. You can see the same alloy is used in the new AAA quality fake Audemars Piguet 16202XT (which bears a fineness mark of Pd500 under Titane on the back). But sure, that’s a bunch of mumbo-jumbo (no pun intended). So what does it mean?
When you cool metal, crystals form, which, in certain circumstances, can result in incredible patterns like you might see in meteorites. The faster you cool a metal, the smaller the crystals and the more dense the metal becomes. Cool it fast enough and crystals don’t form at all. Instead, you get a non-crystalline amorphous internal structure that is actually, by definition, a glass – a glass with incredible hardness and shine.
The benefit here is that the hardness counters one of the main issues of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak replica online: the bezel is a scratch magnet. Sure, the first scratch on any watch hurts, but the high-polish bezel of the RO means that any scratch is essentially a massive scar that you can’t avoid looking at. Well, apparently, that issue just got a lot easier to avoid, though with a substantial price compared to other best quality fake Audemars Piguet 16202s (which have the same Calibre 7121). It’ll cost you $96,400 for the peace of mind of a more scratch-resistant “Jumbo,” which promises to be harder to get than the already nearly untouchable 16202 in steel.
I find it slightly amazing how perfect replica Audemars Piguet is capable of producing a seemingly endless barrage of different iterations of the Royal Oak each year. Given that the Royal Oak is a legitimate horological icon, the brand can’t really alter its core design all that much, and even the similarly styled Offshore range exists as its own distinct collection. That said, every single year, the brand somehow finds a way to create countless new 1:1 fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak references that all offer slightly different takes on this same fan-favorite integrated bracelet design. Continuing this trend, the historic Swiss manufacturer has announced an entire batch of new Royal Oak models for 2023, and among them is the cheap replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin reference 16202XT.OO.1240XT.01, which embraces thoroughly modern materials and pairs a striking red gradient dial with a case and bracelet made from titanium and bulk metallic glass.
While the new 1:1 replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin (ref. 16202XT.OO.1240XT.01) is technically a new model and marks the first time that the collection has offered a case and bracelet crafted from titanium and metallic glass, calling it a completely new watch is ultimately a bit of a stretch. Aside from its novel dial and case materials, the watch itself is very much the same ref. 16202 Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin that already exists within the brand’s current collection, which means that it features a case that measures 39mm in diameter by 8.1mm thick, with sapphire crystals fitted to both the bezel and caseback, along with the Royal Oak’s signature integrated bracelet and 50 meters of water resistance. Additionally, two years ago for Only Watch 2021, AAA quality replica Audemars Piguet created a piece-unique Royal Oak Jumbo from these same decidedly modern case materials, although that watch was based upon the previous generation (ref. 15202) and featured a gray Petite Tapisserie dial. Consequently, the new Swiss super clone Audemars Piguet Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin ref. 16202XT.OO.1240XT.01 (more-or-less) combines these two models and then adds a bright red dial to help set it apart from its counterparts.
Just like the standard reference 16202, the new titanium and metallic glass Swiss movement copy Audemars Piguet Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin ref. 16202XT.OO.1240XT.01 is powered by the brand’s manufacture Caliber 7121 automatic movement, which first made an appearance last year in 2022 and is the successor to the original Cal. 2121 that was used inside the brand’s “Jumbo” models since the Royal Oak was first introduced way back in 1972. Running at a frequency of 28,800vph (4 Hz) with a power reserve of approximately 52 hours, the 268-component Audemars Piguet Cal. 7121 replica for sale benefits from a number of updates and refinements compared to the movement found inside the previous generation of the “Jumbo” and it features a quick-set for the date, bidirectional winding for its automatic assembly, and a bearing-mounted skeletonized rotor that is crafted from solid 22k pink gold. Functionally speaking, the high quality fake Audemars Piguet Cal. 7121 doesn’t offer anything all that revolutionary, although it does represent a significant step forward compared to the rather outdated Cal. 2121 from the previous generation.
Viktor Hovland picked a winning watch to celebrate his victory last weekend.
The breakout Norwegian golfer, who has been an aaa quality replica Audemars Piguet ambassador since 2019, wore one of the Swiss watchmaker’s striking Royal Oaks to accept the FedEx Cup at Atlanta’s East Lake Golf Club on Sunday.
Hovland won the PGA Tour Championship and FedEx Cup title after notching a brilliant seven-under-par 63 in the final round. He finished on 27-under par for the tournament and five shots ahead of runner-up Xander Schauffele. Most impressively, the 25-year-old birdied the final three holes to secure the victory. He also managed to strap on his luxury fake Audemars Piguet CA before collecting the cup and an $18 million bonus. Hovland’s perfect replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak appears to be a 39 mm “Jumbo” Extra-Thin that was released in January 2022 to mark the model’s 50th anniversary. The cheap copy Audemars Piguet (Ref. 16202) houses a self-winding extra-thin Caliber 7121 instead of the Caliber 2121 that had been used in the Jumbo since it launched in 1972. Measuring a scant 3.2 mm, the hour, minute, and date movement has been finished with Côtes de Genève, Traits Tirés, and circular graining finishes that are visible through the caseback. It is also equipped with a rapid date corrector and a larger barrel with more power for more precise timekeeping over a longer period.
Five years in the making, the movement has bidirectional winding, a balance wheel fit with inertia blocks to avoid unnecessary friction, and comes with an extra-thin date-setting mechanism. Plus, Swiss made replica Audemars Piguet CA offers 55 hours of power reserve.
Hovland opted for an 18-karat pink-gold iteration with a smoked Petite Tapisserie dial. The gray hues on the face are achieved by a galvanic bath process that involves spraying colored varnish on the rotating dial’s outer edge. The hours and hands are made of pink gold and topped with a luminescent coating. The bracelet is also pink gold and comes fitted with a folding clasp.
Swiss replica Audemars Piguet’s iconic Royal Oak just got the Cookie Monster blue treatment.
1:1 fake Audemars Piguet, or “AP” or “Audemars” as rappers call it, recently unveiled its Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar watch dripped out entirely in blue ceramic material.
The monochromatic cheap replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch also marks AP’s first-ever timepiece to receive a blue ceramic case and bracelet, pleasing chronograph connoisseurs who appreciate Audemars watches beyond their visual appeal. The 41mm case’s sapphire crystals and white-gold hour ticks on the dial mingle with the top copy watch’s royal hue, exuding feels of stars dancing in the night sky. Indeed, there aren’t any clouds in these nighttime stones (word to Jay-Z’s intro on “Umbrella”).
Adding to the perfect replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak‘s celestial vibe, the watch also totes an astrological moon indicator — a plus for cosmic enthusiasts looking to up their wrist game — in addition to the day, date, and month subdials.
The Royal Oak timepiece naturally boasts luxury super clone Audemars Piguet’s timeless craftsmanship, evident in the titanium clasp bracelet and the Swiss watch manufacturer’s iconic “Grande Tapisserie” square pattern on the dial.
The latest blue CA Audemars Piguet replica for sale isn’t the first to receive a mono-material makeover. Remember the $78k Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar in full titanium?
The model also did the whole ceramic thing with its white and black ceramic renditions in 2017 and 2019, respectively.
The blue Swiss movement copy Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar — available for purchase via an appointment with AP — is a simply another tasteful addition to high quality fake Audemars Piguet’s timeless collection, sealing the company’s usual bells and whistles with an interstellar stellar finish.
Stone dials are about as 1970s as you can get. And as a self-professed 1970s nostalgia freak, theoretically, this means I should be uncompromisingly devoted to the relatively recently-released 37mm turquoise dial Audemars Piguet Royal Oak replica for sale.
Sure, part of me is enamored. But I have some housekeeping/general observations before I run through an 800-word love letter to this cheap fake Audemars Piguet CA.
Firstly, I have noticed that stone dials are weirdly a political unifier amongst watch enthusiasts – a unique middle ground for men and women to confer without some uncalled-for battle of the sexes debate/discourse. We can all admire a pretty stone (and lord knows I do). It’s as if these high quality super clone watches are akin to souvenirs from a years-past trip to the Natural History Museum – the London one – duh – with a parent. Or a forgotten lesson in elementary school, where everybody got to pass around little lumps of quartz, tiger’s eye, aventurine, obsidian, etc., in the hopes of learning the basics of mineral science. I don’t know if this is a hot take, but stone dials, unlike gemstones, are neutral territory. They are decorative, they are not for everybody, but they are seemingly far from polarizing.
Stone dials are more quirky than gem-setting on luxury replica Audemars Piguet watches. Stone dials are earthy and bohemian. They loosely signify hippie culture (a culture which has been fetishized and annihilated to such a degree that I’m not sure this point remains relevant anymore but let’s stick with it for now as I take us back to the 1970s). This is hippie culture in the most surface sense; less revolutionary dropouts from Haight-Ashbury make it to communal life in rural America and more holding multiple minerals in each hand as you make a journey across the PCH to the Esalen Institute.
And, as we know, aaa quality fake watches are often a reflection of the broader zeitgeist – the cultural climate being referenced here is our modern-day obsession with mid-century style: fashion, furniture, art… and copy watches. As tempting as it is for me to fall into my usual bourgeois bohemian fantasy about Loulou de Falaise wearing flowy Yves Saint Laurent caftans, armfuls of wooden bangles, and strand upon strand of semi-precious stone beads, I am not her, and it is 2023, not 1973. So I’ll channel my fantasy into something like a modern stone dial watch (and maybe throw on a single string of coral beads for good measure, because why not).
But here’s the really tricky part. Because as much as I want to put on the turquoise dial Audemars Piguet Royal Oak replica online and slip into 1970s Saint Laurent muse cosplay, stone dials actually turn my levels of discernment up by about 10 notches. There is a lot more to these dials than just a pretty or unusual color and texture. The lapidary has to be immaculate in order for the dial to look refined, evenly saturated in color with just the right amount of flaws, and balanced in relation to its case and bracelet. This particular turquoise dial copy Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, like others in its category, comes with a healthy price tag ($61,000 to be precise) – so I do not take the quality of the stone or cutting technique lightly.
And while this Swiss movement fake Audemars Piguet CA did pass the stop-everything-you-are-doing-and-revel-in-the-beauty-of-this-watch-on-social-media test when it came out in February of this year, seeing lapidary up close is very different. It’s hard to pass judgment when you cannot see every single dial in the full run. They will all be cut differently, the veins in the Mexican turquoise will all form different patterns – it’s the luck of the draw.
The most striking quality, aside from the obvious best quality replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak design and perfect metalwork, is the contrast in color between the 18k yellow gold and bright turquoise stone. Gold and blue is a perfect combination in my mind; very Mediterranean, very regal, very pharaohs in Egypt, but also very ’70s. This is not Tiffany blue; it’s a different thing. The only point of comparison I would maybe deem acceptable is the modern Rolex Day-Date with its own turquoise dial (not for me, though, thanks).
The simplicity and size of this watch work harmoniously. It would have been interesting to see this without the date window and seconds hand, maybe even without applied hour markers for a super clean and less watchy look, but for now, I’ll take her as she is.
At 37mm x 9.3mm, it’s relatively compact – but cheap fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oaks fit larger than most, so if you’ve never tried one on before, know that this usually tends to wear like a 39mm (they made me say this). The watch comes equipped with a self-winding Caliber 5900, which displays hours, minutes, center seconds, and date. And has a power reserve of 60 hours and water resistance of 50m.
I will not be blindly brainwashed into liking anything. Certainly not when the product in question is a true Venn diagram of all my watch interests: yellow gold, 1970s, and colorful stones. Swiss made replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak or not, this yellow gold, turquoise dial watch hit all the notes I was after. You know it’s love when there are over 50 pictures in the camera roll. Now make her in 34mm, and you might have yourself a customer (insert joke about waiting list here).
