Audemars Piguet replica watches will bring fresh color to SIHH 2018 with three new Royal Oak ultra-thin tourniquet watches. We are here today to analyze two of them, one is classic steel and the other is 18ct rose gold. All the changes are purely aesthetic and, as far as we know, the limited edition will not, although we imagine the production quantity to be relatively low to maintain the exclusivity of these products.
Royal Oak extra-thin Tourbillon debuted in 2012 as part of Royal Oak’s 40th anniversary celebration. The idea was to adopt the original concept of Royal Oak from 1972 and elevate it to a whole new plain of consciousness (my words, not theirs). Arguably, they succeeded, and since then cheap fake Audemars Piguet watches has launched a number of products, including an all-platinum version in 2016 and a titanium/platinum hybrid in 2017.
For 2018, we’re back to the raw metal you know and do well in best copy Royal Oak Extnra-Thin Tourbillon: 18ct rose gold and stainless steel. Both cases are 41mm x 8.95mm and come with AP’s beloved metal matching bracelet. The pink gold edition (Ref. 26522ST.OO.1220ST.01) has a familiar blue dial, and we have seen the pink gold application hour markers in previous editions, although there is a fairly obvious (and perhaps even dramatic) difference that we will get within a minute.
At the same time, the steel version (Ref. 26522ST.OO.1220ST.01) uses a striking purple or plum dial with a white gold time marker, a color from our previous collection. Without seeing it in person, it’s hard to say how purple it looks, but we definitely see other brands that have been successful with purple watches, even though they are usually more edgy independent brands like MB&F and Manufacture Royale. In addition to the new dial colors, the two models also have new dial patterns. Luxury Audemars Piguet replica watches iconic “Tapisserie” twist design now looks like a sunrise pattern, and I have to say it’s very visually striking, almost incomparably so. The design seems to radiate outward from the tourbillon, providing a visual magnification of the hypnotic “cyclone.”
On the back of the table, the sapphire undercap shows the internal working mode of the manual upper chain movement 2924. The internal mechanism is the same as previous models. With a thickness of only 4.46 mm, 25 gemstones and a vibration speed of 21,600 v/ph, it can provide a maximum power reserve of 70 hours when fully connected, which you can track through the power reserve indicator. The only real difference is the presentation and decoration of the movement. The structure of the bridge has been modified to allow for a better view of the moving parts below, while the Geneva stripes employ more sun-like patterns, mimicking the dial. Finishing, of course, is a special criterion.
