What we’re looking at here today – and coming to terms with – is a Best Replica 41mm Royal Oak chronograph with a frosted white gold case and a loud purple dial. Hate it or love it, let’s get to know it a little better.
In 2017, the two-tone dial models made their debut in same case size but with larger chronograph counters at 9 and 3 o’clock, shorter but thicker hour markers, more lume and new typeset and transfers with a larger AP logo.
Almost the entire surface of this Audemars Piguet Replica and integrated bracelet are covered in frosted gold, save for the polished flanks of the bezel, the sides of the bracelet and the chronograph pushers and crown. Admittedly, the frosty surface emits a dull, matte sparkle without the dazzle of diamonds.
The balance between the diameter and thickness (11mm) is perfect – in fact, it looks sleeker than the 39mm and is more balanced on the wrist. The all-important factor of proportion has been achieved and the Cheap Replica watch feels absolutely right.
The white gold applied hour markers and the hands are identical to the 2017 model with luminescent coating and the date window perched between 4 and 5 o’clock has a purple background to match the dial.
