Design-wise the new “Jumbo” doesn’t depart from its predecessor, the ref. 15202, or even the original ref. 5402 of 1972. Best Audemars Piguet Replica has smartly kept the design unchanged, but the watch has been thoroughly and smartly upgraded in many respects, especially in terms of ergonomics and mechanics.
The “Jumbo” is easily distinguishable from other Royal Oak models. Most other Royal Oak models tend to be thicker regardless of diameter, making the “Jumbo” especially elegant despite the cuff-like appearance resulting from the wide, integrated bracelet.
In short, the “Jumbo” is the ideal design, which is why it’s been heavily reengineered to create the Audemars Piguet Replica Watches “Jumbo” ref. 16202 that has been improved in practically every tangible aspect, yet remains visually unchanged.
Even though the aesthetics are identical, the ref. 16202 is objectively better than its predecessors. It has superior ergonomics, mainly from a bracelet that wears better, and improved functionality thanks to a new movement with a quickset date.
“Icon” is a label bandied about too liberally, but the Cheap Royal Oak “Jumbo” Replica is definitely one. The new ref. 16202 remains an icon, but it is substantively improved in all respects.
The biggest functional drawback of past versions of the “Jumbo” was the lack of a quickset date, which meant having to endlessly cycle the hands back and forth past midnight to set the date.
On the other hand, the primary problem in terms of wearability has been solved with a smartly revamped bracelet that looks virtually identical to the original but fits substantially better.
The best replica watches in the world bracelet is similar to that on the preceding ref. 15202, with links slightly thicker than those found on the vintage ref. 5402, which had a bracelet that feels slightly dinky by modern standards.
The fit of the ref. 16202 has been improved by tweaking the geometry of the bracelet links to incorporate more vertical give. That is most apparent from the fact that the bracelet drapes downwards to form a smaller angle relative to the lugs, allowing it to better fit smaller wrists.
But the bracelet is still stiff enough that the watch stands and forms an “O” when placed vertical on a desk, preserving a key feature of the Audemars Piguet 1:1 replica watches. Still, the difference is enough to be tangible in the hand and on the wrist. These adjustments mean the ref. 16202 will fit a wider range of wrists and also wear more comfortably.
In fact, the clasp itself is taller than the links. Thinning the clasp would not take away from its robustness or functionality in my estimation, neither would it diminish the ability to polish the pushbuttons. But a thinner clasp would be more coherent visually and might also make it slightly more comfortable.
