Did I just write about an AAA fake Audemars Piguet in last week’s Vintage Watches article? Yes. Did I somewhat discount the Royal Oak in that article? Also, yes – now let me clarify. Swiss replica Audemars Piguet UK is more than the time-only Royal Oak, in any reference. Let’s just go ahead and link to the same classic Hodinkee article and video I surfaced last Wednesday – Historical Perspectives: Inside The Archives Of perfect replica Audemars Piguet.
The top quality fake watches shown in this piece from 2014 represent the core of AP before the Royal Oak in 1972 – precious metals, complicated, made in small numbers, and so, so elegantly designed.
Just like the ref. 25574 that we offered last week, this luxury fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Day Date With Moonphase hits all the right notes for me. As shown in the Historical Perspectives video, AP has a long history of calendar complications. Therefore, it was only right that in 1983, a day and date was the first complication to be featured in the mid-sized, 36mm case diameter, Royal Oak. Two years later in 1985, this cheap fake Audemars Piguet watch, the ref. 25594 was introduced, adding a moonphase to the mix with the caliber 2825 inside. The complication layout on the dial is really well executed as are the fonts which are restrained enough so as to not draw too much attention. In this example, the case and bracelet steal the show more so than on your standard Audemars Piguet Royal Oak replica for sale because of the warm, almost rose gold-esque patina – even with the dial complications. In my view, the case and bracelet are absolutely unpolished.
A few smaller, possibly overlooked details of this watch that are catching my eye include the earlier “block font” high quality replica Audemars Piguet signature and the creamy dial texture. With the gold case, bracelet, and dial furniture, the warm cream dial tone is a nice change of pace, slightly breaking up the all-gold look and harder-to-find in the vintage market today.
