The word iconic is one of the most overused and abused words in the watch industry, however, I bet everyone agrees that the Royal Oak IS a true design icon. A watch that defined the modern luxury sports update watch. Et voilà, there’s the luxury sports watch, an archetype that has never seemed more relevant than today, as demand for such watches is higher, much higher, than availability.
Best Replica Audemars Piguet watches 41mm case is just 6.1mm thick and is fashioned out of titanium with a platinum bezel and bracelet interlinks. The watch is powered by the self-winding calibre 5133 with perpetual calendar, day/night and astronomical moon indication. This 32mm calibre ticks at the unusual pace of 2.75 Hz and offers a 40h-power reserve. Subtle, elegant with great wrist presence.
The movement is an evolution of the AP in-house calibre 3120, a self-winding movement that is normally regulated by one balance wheel. Here, it actually gets a second balance wheel, and the balance staff carries one balance wheel on each side of the movement to enhance accuracy and stability, making this into a ‘double balance wheel’.
A feast for the eyes, the Audemars Piguet Royal OaksReplica movement is completely openworked and superbly hand-finished. It is presented in a 41mm case paired with a bracelet.
Audemars Piguet unveiled a watch that is the epitome of top-notch craftsmanship both inside and out: the Royal Oak Frosted Double Balance Wheel Openworked. For this watch, Replica Audemars Piguetpulled out all the stops, combining one of the brand’s most beautiful and technically advanced calibres with a remarkable Frosted gold finish.
Each component of the Double Balance Wheel Openworked movement is finely decorated to achieve optimal skeletonization and dramatic detail – think hand-polished sharp angles, bevelled bridges, straight-grained flat surfaces. Initially, two years ago, this movement was placed inside a 41mm case. Now, Audemars Piguet Replica with the newest 18-karat white gold Frosted version, it is housed in a 37mm case – making it much more versatile for wear.
While the inside of the watch is a work of technical mastery, the outside is a work of hand-finished art. The case and the entire bracelet features what Audemars Piguet calls Frosted Gold. In fact, that gold is hand hammered to achieve an unparalleled, shimmering look.
ThisBest Audemars Piguet Replica is a bit too shimmery, and while the shimmer belies the brilliance of technology, I personally would prefer the non-hammered 18-karat rose gold 37mm model. However, the end result of the combination of interior superiority and exterior eminence make the new 18-karat white gold Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Frosted Double Balance Wheel Openworked watch a winner…
