Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar ref. 25654BA.OO.0944BA.01
Of all the lots on this list, this is the UK luxury fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak I wanted to take home after visiting the Ineichen office in Zurich. Its dial colour is hard to nail down to one thing. To the eye, you have a matte champagne-golden meets salmon meets creamsicle tone – I just love it. Personally, I also find that the lines of a 1:1 replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak – the sharp bevels and rich brushing – are best conveyed in yellow gold. It is that much more abundantly clear how many hours go into hand-finishing such a case and bracelet. This top copy Audemars Piguet ref. 25654BA.OO.0944BA.01 was manufactured in 1988, and yet, aside from some minor aging to the yellow gold, is in very good condition. There are no major discernible scratches to the 39mm x 8.25mm case or bracelet.
Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin ref. 15202IP.OO.1240IP.01
I vividly remember when this reference was released in 2018, and how it instantly became my favorite modern Swiss made fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak “Jumbo”. While it may seem counterintuitive, the combination of titanium and platinum really intrigued me. Titanium is known for being the lightest weight metal, and noble platinum the heaviest. So, using both results in a compromise – where, perhaps, the super clone watch uk feels like steel on the wrist.
Aesthetically, however, it does have clearer intentions. Titanium is ever so darker than steel, and platinum a tad more brilliant in lustre. Therefore, in Grand Seiko terms, there is that much more play between light and shadow as the polished and brushed surfaces engage with light sources. So, how is the metal divvied up? You have a 39mm x 8.1mm titanium case with an entirely polished 950 platinum bezel, and a brushed titanium bracelet with polished 950 platinum intermediary links. This particular Extra-Thin “Jumbo”, a limited edition of 250 high quality replica watches that has since sold out, also features a striking dark-blue fume tapisserie dial that I find has a darker brooding electricity akin to the boldness of an Yves Klein dial.
