When Audemars Piguet Replica launched the Code 11.59 last year, the best looking of the collection were the two watches with smoked enamel dials, which were the minute repeater and flying tourbillon. The base models, on the other hand, were plain and looked a bit flat.
With the same case as the standard version, the Bolshoi edition looks and feels identical on the wrist. Though the watch isn’t overly large at 41 mm by 10.7 mm, it feels a bit bigger than it measures. At the same time, it is also feels solid in the hand.
The sapphire crystal is curved on two planes – something Audemars Piguet Replica Watches China often cites as a key feature of the watch – that creates an interesting but not noteworthy optical effect. Fortunately, the crystal is coated with an antireflective coating, so the curvature doesn’t affect legibility at all.
Simultaneously, the complicated case construction means the nooks and crannies accumulate dust and grime swiftly – which you also notice when it’s on the wrist.
The Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica dial is a splendid piece of craftsmanship. It has the same look that other brands usually execute with lacquer, but instead in fired enamel.
A rich, compelling blue at the centre, the dial darks towards the edges, with an even graduation of tone around the dial. Such an effect is achieved not with darker enamel, but a slightly thicker layer of enamel at the edges.
The raised flange for the minute numerals is black lacquered, rather than enamel, but the colour matches the Fake Audemars Piguet dial well, resulting in an almost-seamless transition from dial to flange.
