The Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) is under way, with about 30 fake watch labels releasing their new watches this week in Geneva. This is the last time that Audemars Piguet will take part in SIHH, and their new watches have gained a lot of attention. Follow us and have a quick review of several new cheap watches from Audemars Piguet.
Over the past a few years, there has been a remarkable development of smaller case watches, which has formed a category that called, “unisex watches.” Appearing right on trend is the popular Royal Oak Chronograph, it is now available with a smaller 38mm case .
In 2019, Audemars Piguet will update their staple model Royal Oak, substitute the item 15400 to five new editions of the Royal Oak automatic item 15500. Equipped with the 41mm case, the cheap replica watch has a lightly modified dial that features wider markers, a minute track that sits outside the “Grande Tapisserie” pattern, and the elimination of the 3 o’clock hour marker giving way to the date window, which has been resettled to be closer to the outer edge of the dial.
In the inside the movement has also received a thoroughly update, the new Royal Oak automatic 41 now has been changed into the newly released Caliber 4302 which provides 70 hours power to reserve. The five new models include three in stainless steel with options of a blue, gray, or black dial – in addition to two rose gold editions that have black faces and offer the option of either a matching gold bracelet or a black leather strap.
Sometimes to make a special timepiece, all it needs is introducing a fresh new dial- which is exactly what Audemars Piguet did on the Limited Edition Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin item number 15202BC. Some people call the dial color salmon, while the manufacturer prefers to call it pink gold-toned. No matter how the color is called, the dial receives AP’s classic “Petite Tapisserie” treatment, creating an eye-catching looks that has received a lot of chatters among collectors and enthusiasts of the brand.
By today’s standards, the 39mm white gold case is far from “Jumbo” – the Jumbo nickname is originated from the first Royal Oak – which during the 1970s, was considered pretty big for its time. Despite the fact, the “Jumbo” nicknames is rooted, and now refers to Royal Oak references whose sizes are quite common by today’s standards. Moreover, with the matching 18k white gold integrated bracelet, this is actually not a light-weighted replica watch, despite the case’s thin 8mm profile. With only 75 pieces, the Royal Oak Extra-Thin watch will be sold only at AP official stores.
