To mark the 50th anniversary of its groundbreaking Swiss made Audemars Piguet Royal Oak replica watches, Audemars Piguet has added covetable new models to the range.
An inspired design decision, conceived of at just the right moment, can trigger a seismic shift in the style of the day. On the other hand, a change might be equally significant but so minuscule as to be barely perceptible to the human eye. With its AAA US Audemars Piguet Royal Oak fake watches collection, Swiss manufacturer Audemars Piguet has a foot in both camps.
When the original perfect replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watches was unveiled in 1972, Switzerland was at the centre of the world watchmaking industry but facing stiff competition from up-and-comers in Japan and the USA. Designer Gérald Genta was commissioned by Audemars Piguet to design a new timepiece that would reinvigorate the company’s presence on the world stage.
So successful was his response that the best Audemars Piguet Royal Oak copy watches modified the face of watchmaking, marrying the technical prowess of haute horlogerie with the more youthful spirit of the times.
“The Royal Oak changed the very watch landscape by pioneering an entirely new genre, the luxury steel sports watch, a category that many at the time doubted existed but today – more than ever – dominates watch sales,” says Bani McSpedden, watch editor at The Australian Financial Review.
The signature elements of the luxury Audemars Piguet Royal Oak replica watches, as conceived of by Genta, are instantly recognisable to watch aficionados. There’s the octagonal-shaped bezel secured with eight hexagonal screws; the integrated bracelet; and, perhaps most strikingly, the Guilloché pattern of the “Tapisserie” dial, which masterfully captures the light with a subtle movement of the wrist.
Fifty years after its launch, the original 39mm steel high quality Audemars Piguet super clone watches has given rise to a collection of more than 500 models of different sizes, materials and dial designs.
“Genta’s humble two-handed original has morphed into a vast buffed and bountiful unisex range, with standouts boasting mesmerising mechanicals and glittering gem-work sitting alongside ‘everyday’ time-tellers and chronographs in all manner of sizes and finishes,” McSpedden explains.
The Royal Oak today
The range has expanded further in 2022 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the top fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watches; the new models retain the groundbreaking features of the original, while pushing ergonomics and technical capabilities even further.
The bevels adorning the top and the bottom of the case have been enlarged, while the caseback has been integrated into the case middle to sit more comfortably on the wrist. To highlight these changes, the bracelet’s first four links are now trapezoid in shape and the links are thinner and lighter across the bracelet. This creates a more pronounced taper as well as offering superior comfort for the wearer.
Among the 50th Anniversary 41 mm 1:1 replica Audemars Piguet Selfwinding Chronograph watches are two new models available in your choice of stainless steel or 18-carat pink gold. The Grande Tapisserie dial features either black or silver tones, and hour markers in white-gold or pink-gold make a statement when approached by the signature Royal Oak hands with their luminescent coating.
Flip it over to reveal a new oscillating weight bearing the “50 years” insignia crafted to match the colour of the case. It’s visible through the sapphire caseback and underscored by an engraved Audemars Piguet signature.
But what about those miniscule details that true watch fans can gleefully obsess over? Look no further than the minute track, which is now printed directly onto the Tapisserie surface using a specialised technique.
Or, indeed, the Audemars Piguet signature on the dial, each letter of which has been crafted from thin layers of 24-carat gold. The insignia is lovingly attached to the dial by hand and held in place by minuscule legs the width of human hair, a technique that took more than three years to perfect.
With its visionary design and innovative details, it’s little wonder that in its 50th year, demand for the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak replica watches wholesale has never been higher, notes McSpedden.
