The Audemars Piguet Replica watch was provocative, not only because of its price but mostly because of its unprecedented design. The basic but novel idea of Genta was to apply some concepts of jewellery into watchmaking. Until then, watches were basically designed as a sum of elements: a case, a strap, a movement and a dial that, all together, would create a timepiece.
Genta came up with an object to be seen as a single, consistent design, where case, bracelet and dial were part of a whole. This would later be named the luxury sports copy watch category, with its definition created after the Royal Oak’s design.
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replica watch, known as reference 5402ST, was a mix of classic AP elements – ultra-thin movement, guilloché dial, high-end decoration and superior quality of the finishing – with otherwise unfamiliar specifications – use of steel, integration of a bracelet, decent water-resistance, time-and-date display and clear nautical inspiration.
And if the 1972 design was provocative, it gave birth to an array of competitors to become a true watchmaking category in its own right… and the most popular of them all, indeed. Still, the Royal Oak 5402ST Replica Watchwas often copied but rarely equalled. It was produced – under series A, B, C and D, all with slight evolutions on the dial/bracelet/movement – until the late 1970s.
The latest Audemars Piguet Royal Oak cheap replica watch is not only a stunning timepiece, with a movement thickness of only 2.89 mm and a case height of 6.3 mm. The new Royal Oak self-winding perpetual calendar ultra-thin watch lives up to expectations.
In order to achieve an ultra-thin design, all three perpetual calendar functions have been merged into one layer. Compared to the previous Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar model, the date, date and month sub-dials have also been enlarged to improve readability.
The day and night indicator at 8 pm has been added symmetrically to the year indicator at 4 pm. Moon phase indicators are located above all three dials.
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replica self-winding perpetual calendar ultra-thin watch combines titanium and 950 platinum, looks elegant, and the feel on the wrist is also significantly reduced. The case, bracelet and bezel are decorated with alternating polished and frosted surfaces.
The dial no longer has the blue “Grande Tapisserie” pattern. Instead, its blue satin finish adds clarity and enhances the sophisticated aesthetics of the watch.
The movement is Fake Audemars Piguet 5133 movement with a case diameter of 41mm. The power reserve enters after 40 hours. The anti-glare sapphire crystal glass protects the dial and the back cover, and the titanium locking crown provides water resistance up to 20 meters. White gold is used for the hour markers, and the hands of the Royal Oak have a luminous coating, allowing the dial to be read in the dark.
The normal surface of the watch has been removed and replaced with a brushed metal surface without a time identifier. There is a date window at 3 o’clock, but apart from that, the only other markings are the 1017 ALYX 9SM logo on the lower half and theAudemars Piguet Replica logo on the upper half.
Mad Paris also deleted the traditional Piguet buckle and replaced it with a Cobra Belt style buckle, which is made of two-tone silver and gold stainless steel.
