Ceramic, as most watch aficionados are aware by now, is harder than steel, temperature and scratch-resistant, and hypoallergenic, and adding color to it is a long, complex process that involves achieving just the right pigmentation. The chocolate brown ceramic used for the octagonal bezel of the only rose-gold model in the new series, is a standout, used here for the first time by Best Audemars Piguet Replica.
The colors of the bezels are also echoed in the watches’ dials, which feature the “Mega Tapisserie” motif emblematic of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Replica, and in the camo pattern straps, which are made of robust rubber and integrate seamlessly into the cases’ lugs.
The tricompax dial layout offers subdials at 12, 9, and 6 o’clock and a round date window at 3 o’clock. Surrounding the dial, with its gold hands and applied hour markers, is a rhodium-toned outer scale, while the flange hosts a white-on-black tachymeter scale.
The Audemars Piguet Replica case, both steel and gold version, is water-resistant to 100 meters. Inside, beneath a clear sapphire caseback, beats Audemars Piguet’s manufacture Caliber 3126/3840, a self-winding, chronograph-equipped movement with 59 jewels, a 21,600-vph frequency, and a minimum 50-hour power reserve. Each of the models comes with an additional color-coordinated strap to swap out with the camo strap for a more understated look.
