By the time Hong Kong-based financier Lung Lung Thun, 32, had found celebrity in the US luxury replica watches world, it was too late. She’d already been pigeonholed as a leading “lady collector,” even having been profiled in a New York Times piece highlighting female collectors. She’s been typecast as an agent of change in the watch world, but she doesn’t see it that way. “I’ve always thought, man, I wish some other girl would come on Instagram and take the load off me. Because I just want to focus on the watches,” she says. Here are 1:1 top fake watches from Thun’s collection that perfectly suit her glamorous style.

Throughout my conversations with Thun (I’ve been on her Podcast here and here, and we occasionally catch up and chat watches), I’ve noticed a few themes emerge. One is that she loves high quality Audemars Piguet replica watches. That’s obvious. She also doesn’t take this whole watch thing too seriously. Beyond that, she has a “speak softly and carry a big stick” way about her, demanding respect without saying a word. And in this case, the big stick is best AAA fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watches on high. An über AP that’s just so ridiculous you can’t help but gawk at it.
This piece wasn’t actually made for her, but the story of how she came to the watch would suggest there was an element of fate involved.
Thun was invited on a factory tour for VIP clients from Asia, and on the tour the group paused at the complications workshop and the guide asked Thun what she would commission if she were to develop a piece unique. She jokingly replied with “something 37mm, white gold, frosted … I love the men’s openworked.”
Little did she know, she had just described cheap wholesale replica Audemars Piguet watches’ next big release.
Two weeks later, she was offered the very first one. Even for a successful financier, this was a big swing. But to her, it represented the culmination of everything coming together. The hardships of moving Hong Kong with no support network, the hours dedicated to researching imitation watches with Swiss movements and fueling an uncontrollable passion for horology without a community to share it with, the entire education journey, from buying super clone watches for sale that didn’t suit her in the beginning to refining her taste over time. The opportunity to buy the first 37mm openworked in frosted white gold represented the fruits of her labor.
And now, it’s the centerpiece of her collection.

Thun stopped by the AP boutique late one night on a whim. There, she saw a heavily photoshopped rendering of an upcoming release. It featured a mirror dial, and she considered how time might turn the dial black. “It’s the kind of 2021 best replica watches that I’d love to pass down.”
She hadn’t even seen a prototype of the actual watch yet, but she connected with the design so deeply that she asked to put in an order. “I could see how this copy watches shop site was meant to be worn, stacked with jewelry, and I could imagine the woman who designed it, even though I didn’t know what she looked like, I could just imagine how she dressed everything.”
A few months later, the folks from the AP boutique called. Turns out Thun’s example was the first one delivered to Asia. Months after taking delivery of the replica watches paypal, she met Ms. Bucci at a dinner, and Ms. Bucci exclaimed “finally! Someone’s wearing the watch the way it’s supposed to be worn!” Thun wore it stacked with jewelry.
To Thun, the best quality fake Audemars Piguet watches epitomizes what great design is: “When someone somewhere else in the world, with a completely different background and culture from me, draws something on a piece of paper and it can be translated so well by design that someone else, somewhere else in the world can pick it up and understand how it’s supposed to be used and worn.”
