The Royal Oak brand release a ton of new Audemars Piguet Copy watches. We have picked three here before we cover them hands-on: two belong to the highly exclusive Concept range with a new and refreshing ladies’ piece drizzled with diamonds, and a very dark and aggressive looking men’s variant with a mysterious pusher in its side. Along with these come a record-extra-thin automatic perpetual calendar model with, rather shockingly, a blue dial.
Anyhow, here’s something interesting for you: Fake Audemars Piguet Watches say they have “reinvented the calendar watch” with the Royal Oak RD#2 Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin. I might have called it extra-thin further above – how foolish of me.
The automatic Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replica Watches Calibre 5133 is a “record-shattering” 2.89mm thin, 32.00mm wide and contains 256 parts in total. The challenge was to re-engineer a three-tier movement into a single level while “combining and re-arranging functions to boost ergonomy, efficiency, and robustness.” The brand says this patented system “features a record-shattering 2.89mm central rotor” though I imagine that to be a typo of some sort.
There is “no compromise on quality,” which in the brand’s mind equals a 40-hour power reserve and a 2.75Hz operating frequency. Though the thinner a case, generally the more comfortable to wear it is. At this point I’d trade a few millimeters in favor of seeing the corrector pushers be gone from all luxury annual and perpetual calendars. I just don’t find anything “heroic” or Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica in taking a pen to fiddle with these pushers every time the 40-hour power reserve runs down. Water resistance is also a basically useless 20m.
All in all, this is one fascinating movement wrapped into the love it or hate it 41mm Royal Oak case and a blue dial that resembles the relatively unpopular Audemars Piguet Replica Watches of old. I’d love to chat with the engineers who managed to squeeze 256 parts into a 32mm by 2.89mm space as much as with those who think the Royal Oak looks good in 41.
