Introducing Replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra

This Replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra-Thin Limited Edition for Singapore retailer The Hour Glass might be a future collectors favourite, but maybe not for the reasons you would expect.

Replica-AP-Royal-Oak-Extra-Thin-The-Hour-Glass-Yellow-goldThis is not only a limited edition for Singapore’s top retailer The Hour Glass. It’s also a tribute to Singapore’s 50th birthday, hence there will be only 50 replica watches Swiss made, and the jubilee is of course a golden one.

Perhaps the most unique feature of this 18k Royal Oak Extra-Thin is the dark green dial which matches beautifully the golden color. The Omega replica dial is made with the iconic ”petite tapisserie” pattern and this ref. 15202 is the first ”Jumbo” from Audemars Piguet made in 18k gold.

Replica-AP-Royal-Oak-Extra-Thin-The-Hour-Glass-Yellow-gold-1The special oscillating weight is engraved with The Hour Glas logotype as well as the text ”One Of Fifty”. The in-house calibre 2121 is made up of 247 parts and is visible through the beautiful sapphire-cristal caseback.

Replica-AP-Royal-Oak-Extra-Thin-The-Hour-GlassThe case is 39mm wide and 8.1mm high and this limited edition (ref. 15205BA.OO.1240BA.01) retails at $59,000 with deliveries starting in August.Omega replica watches shop

Replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar 41mm

Audemars Piguet replica watches has a rich history of producing complicated perpetual calendar timepieces, dating back to the 19th century.  In fact, the region in which Audemars Piguet was founded – Switzerland’s Vallée de Joux – is widely regarded as the foremost area where much of the development of perpetual calendars has occurred.

Even before Audemars Piguet’s  founding in 1875, descendants of the original founders, including Isaac Abraham Piguet (he began his watchmaking apprenticeship in 1753), were already involved in the field of watchmaking in the region.

It is said that 1800 was when the first perpetual calendar was invented, although that date, like many in fake Breitling watchmaking history, is not backed up by conclusive evidence.

Fast forward to the modern day and the Audemars Piguet manufacture is still considered one of the experts in creating perpetual calendar mechanisms.

Audemars Piguet displayed this know-how once again last month, when it launched its new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar collection, consisting of four new models in total: steel with a white or blue dial, and rose gold with a white or blue dial.

The new replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendars, like the Royal Oaks that were launched in 2012, now come in larger, 41-mm-diameter cases. This new case size warranted a new movement (Caliber 5134), as well as offering more room on the dial with which to increase legibility and add a new function.

According to the manufacture, “The enlarged size has resulted in a ‘Grande Tapisserie’ dial design that greatly increases the overall aesthetics, balance and legibility of the perpetual calendar indications.”

Interestingly, in addition to the prerequisite day, date, month and leap-year functions – and the astronomical moon phase display – the designers added a week counter. A dedicated, centrally mounted hand points to the week (from 1 to 52) on a scale that is printed on the flange.

Audemars Piguet in-house Caliber 5134 is based on its predecessor, Caliber 2120. The automatic movement beats at frequency of 2.75Hz (19,800 vph), with 374 total parts, including 38 jewels, and a 40-hour power reserve. Movement thickness was kept to 4.31 mm, allowing the designers to maintain the thin case dimensions, which typically means a more comfortable fit on the wrist.

Technically speaking, the rose-gold, skeletonized oscillating weight, which can be custom-decorated upon a consumer’s request, is bidirectional, meaning it can wind the movement in both directions of motion. The balance has variable inertia blocks, a flat balance spring, and mobile stud-holder.

The Omega replica watches movement is highly finished and visible through the sapphire crystal caseback.

The retail prices for the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar are as follows: $60,900 in steel (Ref. 26574ST.00.1220ST.01 – white dial; Ref. 26574ST.00.1220ST.02 – blue dial) and $95,700 in rose gold (Ref. 26574OR.00.1220OR.01 – white dial; Ref. 26574OR.00.1220OR.02 – blue dial).
