What We Know
If someone asked you to close your eyes and picture an AAA fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, it’d have a few things: octagonal bezel, those exposed screws, integrated bracelet, and the trademark tapisserie pattern on the dial. Recently though, luxury replica Audemars Piguet quietly slipped a pair of new Royal Oak Flying Tourbillons onto its site, defined by a new “dimpled dial,” a departure from the classic tapisserie pattern. The first uses 18-karat pink gold with a complementary brown dial, while the second uses 18-karat white gold paired with a blue dial.
Each watch also features a frosted bezel, but other than that, these two new Royal Oak Flying Tourbillons are similar to the updated version 1:1 replica Audemars Piguet CA released a year ago: same 41mm, same self-winding caliber 2950 (debuted in the Code 11.59 in 2019), same flying tourbillon at six o’clock.
Still, anytime cheap fake Audemars Piguet does anything to mix up its tried-and-true Royal Oak formula, it’s worth a second look. So like a grandmother leaning in to pinch the cheeks of her favorite grandchild, let’s look at those dimples.
What We Think
This latest release shows that, while it might not be the 50th anniversary of the Royal Oak anymore, CA Swiss made replica Audemars Piguet has no intention of letting up on playing the hits. Since, at this point, we’ve become somehow accustomed to a Royal Oak Flying Tourbillon as a thing that exists (flying tourbillon simply means there’s no upper bridge on the tourbillon cage), the new dial pattern is the main piece of news here.
The textured dial, featuring what AP calls a “dimpled pattern,” looks textured, deep, and full of twists, not unlike the plot of Glass Onion. It’s actually similar to a dial pattern high quality fake Audemars Piguet CA introduced in the Millenary Philosophique back in 2019 (those Millenaries also featured a frosted case), and the rumor is a Japanese AP collector who owned those watches had the idea to see what they’d look like in a Royal Oak. Here’s the answer.
Unlike most top super clone Audemars Piguet Royal Oak models, the “Audemars Piguet” logo is printed on the dial, not applied, which seems to imply rocky terrain that’d make it difficult to safely land the typical appliqué. The printed logo has the added effect of giving the watch a bit of a vintage “Jumbo” vibe – as much as any flying tourbillon can be described as vintage, I suppose. On top of that, the dimpled bezel is brushed in a circular pattern, which seems to make sense with the circular cutout for the flying tourbillon.
The “frosted” bezel is similarly hand-hammered with a technique that uses a tiny tool to create just-as-tiny dimples in the surface, giving a granularity that appears to sparkle with the light. The effect is beautiful, and it’s the first time we’ve seen AP combine this frosting technique with its more traditional high end copy Audemars Piguet Royal Oak case finishing – the rest of the case and bracelet use the familiar combination of polished and brushed surfaces.
When I was with Swiss movement fake Audemars Piguet last month to cover the release of the new Code 11.59 Starwheel, surrounded by AP clients wearing more versions of the Royal Oak than must exist in Kevin Hart’s bank vault, I think I finally understood why AP makes all those different versions.
First, Audemars Piguet super clone for sale excels at this type of finishing – tapisserie, dimples, frosting – and, quite simply, it’s a way for them to show off one of its strengths as a manufacturer. And it’s great. But, when you see a gold 50th Anniversary Royal Oak with its smoked dial next to Caroline Bucci’s black ceramic Royal Oak next to the ridiculous RD#3, it’s striking how different a handful of watches really are that, on paper, exist as the same model. I have no doubt that the select group of clients to whom this new release is targeted will enjoy the new combination of finishes, combined with one of best copy Audemars Piguet’s most technically astounding movements. It’ll be interesting to watch as AP continues to mix and match its various dial and case finishings in other variations of the Royal Oak.
Price is on request, but expect it to have six digits, and the first digit will be more crooked than straight. Similarly, production isn’t limited, but Audemars Piguet super clone paypal doesn’t make a lot of these.
