With nine of 11 37mm ROOs encrusted in jewels, Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica seems to be marketing these watches to women as opposed to purely expanding its smaller watch offerings. Let’s dive into these new rather striking watches, which bring a big dose of color to the smaller Offshore.
The cases of the Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph 37mm models haven’t changed much, if at all. Offered in 18k yellow gold, 18k pink gold, or stainless steel, all four options feature gem-set bezels. The stainless steel model and one of the pink-gold models feature 32 brilliant-cut diamonds, while the yellow gold has a yellow-to-blue gradient of 32 baguette-cut green tsavorites and blue and yellow sapphires.
The Audemars Piguet Replica Watches China second rose gold model features 32 rubies, tsavorites, topaz, tanzanites, amethysts and orange, yellow, green, blue, violet and pink sapphires for a striking rainbow gradient—surely this will standout for most people. The cases measure 12.4mm-thick, but offer a pitiful 50m of water resistance despite a screw-down crown.
Of note on this case, the lug studs and crown guards are titanium and feature a knurling that gives the watch a sportier look than the other releases and that is exclusive to the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Replica models. The water resistance from the screw-down ceramic crown is the same as the chronographs, which is to say, not much.
All the models are paired rubber straps equipped with AP’s proprietary interchangeable strap system. While the chronographs get more run-of-the-mill designs, the black rubber strap on the Music Edition has a mosaic pattern that echoes the dials pattern.Of note, each of the chronographs comes with an extra rubber strap coordinated to a different color in each model, while the Music Edition gets three such watches, all with the mosaic pattern.
The AP Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph 37mm Replica is available in blue, black, light blue, and salmon, and have undergone slight changes for this new batch of models.The chronographs’ hands and applied markers match their cases, with unspecified luminescent coating. The layout is a classic 3-6-9 chronograph, with 30-minute and 12-hour chronograph registers and a 6 o’clock small seconds; the color-matched date is at 4:30 and does a better job blending in than many other similarly positioned dates.More obvious is the shift from the printed “Audemars Piguet” to the applied “AP” logo at 12 o’clock.
The ROO Chronographs all have solid casebacks in the smear material as their cases, under which runs the automatic Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica Calibre 2385. This in-house movement operates at 21,600 vph with a power reserve of 40 hours. While it does benefit from a column wheel chronograph mechanism, that power reserve is a bit wanting when compared to modern chronograph movements.
Taken as gem-set watches with no further context, there’s nothing to suggest that these new 37mm models aren’t as beautiful in the metal as they are in renders, and the black ceramic music edition offers a bit of fresh, groovy fun. The Audemars Piguet Replica 42mm and 43mm models are beautiful but chunky watches and no doubt there are buyers who would snatch one up were it not for the proportions.
