Royal Oak must be the most popular series of Audemars Piguet, as a sports Swiss brand watch, Audemars Piguet positions Royal Oak an entry-level model among all their collections. In replica watch market, Royal Oak is also one of the best-selling watches, especially the Royal Oak 15400 made by J12 factory, it should be the best replica Audemars Piguet ever made. Today, I will introduce a good-looking Royal Oak Diver replica watch, its reference number is 15706, made by XF factory, also known as V6, which is one of the oldest watch manufacturers and as famous as Noob and ZF. This forged carbon Diver 15706 I am going to introduce today is the latest V3 edition, which is currently the best 15706 that is in stock.
Well, 15706 stands out among various Royal Oak Diver models due to its unique case material and special grain on. Perhaps many people are willing to choose the stainless steel 15703 when talking about Royal Oak Diver, but some people prefer this forged carbon model because they may like the light-weight wearing comfort. The forged carbon 15706 Diver has a 42mm case, which is not too large and can fit the wrist of most men. The forged carbon has special grains that make it look so unique, the bezel is brushed black ceramic, why did not Audemars Piguet use foreged carbon material on the bezel, if so, I will consider to buy one.
The case back is solid stainless steel, the center has a micro-sanded background with polished letterings “Royal Oak Offshore”, behind the back, it is an Asia clone ETA 2836 automatic movement, this movement is widely used in replica watches, check the movement inside, the auto rotor has the same motif as genuine Audemars Piguet Calibre, except the power reserve capacity, this clone movement does not have any other difference with original AP Calibre.
About dial, it is black and has checkers, besides the forged carbon case, another special place of the replica lies in its orange inner bezel, which could be rotated. The dial has a high legibility, besides the orange color usage on inner bezel, minute hand and second hand, the luminescence applied on the hour markers and hands also add a great readability.
About the V3, it has the following improvement:
- The sapphire crystal is more clear.
- The inner bezel is updated more closer to genuine.
- Black checkers on the dial are closer to genuine.
- The shape of the hands is molded correct.
Noob also makes this forged carbon Royal Oak Diver watch, but it is not available now. So currently this V3 edition from XF factory is the best one you can buy online.
Royal Oak is one of the most popular sports watches, in my opinion, its popularity is second only to Hublot Big Bang. Among so many Royal Oak models, the most classic is 15400, the Royal Oak 15400 has a diameter of 41mm, which is not too large and very suitable for most men. Royal Oak 15400 also has several dial versions of black, blue, white and grey, here it is the one with grey dial.
Royal Oak 15400 has a very simple design, so it is always the hottest model for various watch manufacturers to replicate. However, after seeing so many replicas from different factories, the best one is made by J12 factory, we call it JF here. No other factories can compete with JF, which still continuously improves this watch, now this one is the latest V5 edition they just published several days ago, with a lot of improvement upon previous version.
First, open the clasp and check the “AUDEMARS PIGUET” engravings, they are more three-dimensional, the sand-finished background is more delicate. The “AP” engraving on the buckle looks more three-dimensional, and it has the same sanded texture as genuine watch. Third, the checkers on the grey dial have the same size as genuine, each checker is closer to that on genuine in size.
I never doubt the case finish of Audemars Piguet replica watches from J12 factory, because they never let me down. The case finish JF has done on their Audemars Piguet watches can be even compared with that of genuine Audemars Piguet, even the Rolex replica watches made by AR, which is a sub-factory of J12, have already inherited the exquisite manufacturing process from JF.
About the movement, it is a big advantage of JF. The 15400 is equipped with a clone 3120 movement, which is firstly developed by JF. Because the movement is modified on the basis of a genuine Miyota 9015, so it originally has a super accuracy and stability. The auto rotor and movement plates are decorated by JF according to genuine Audemars Piguet 3120 Calibre, check those sculptures on the auto rotor, they are very close to genuine movement, the jewels on movement plate also have correct color tone.
Having been updated to V5 edition, every detail on this replica 15400 has reached to be perfect. It is the best version, you do not need to wait and it is time to buy now.
Real tourbillon watch is very rare in our watch market. Most of websites claimed that they have tourbillon replica watches, but that’s not true. Their so-called tourbillon is just an opening window on the dial that displays the balance wheel, that’s not real tourbillon watch. Due to limitation of technology and cost, I seldom saw tourbillon function in replica watches, the factory usually spent a lot of money to install one tourbillon movement in a replica watch, so it means that they must sell the replica at a very high price, most people do not want to spend their money on such a replica watch that is not 100% perfect, so sometimes it is just a waste of time and money. There are two disadvantages on those tourbillon replica watches made in the past, first, the workmanship, which includes case finish, dial details and bracelet, is not good. Second, the tourbillon device is fake, not genuine. Today, I want to introduce one replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Tourbillon watch that has completely solved these two issues, the replica here uses a genuine tourbillon movement and has a superior workmanship. The replica Audemars Piguet is made by J12 factory, we have already known that this factory is good at manufacturing the best quality replica Audemars Piguet watches, their Audemars Piguet replicas not only have a perfect case finish, but are also equiped with the latest developed super clone AP caliber. This time, J12 used their ingenuity in this Audemars Piguet replica watch and created such an accurate timepiece.
I would like to talk its beautiful dial first, it is in elegant blue, these checkers are refined. All stick hour markers use classic design of Royal Oak, long and slim. Hour markers and hand feature silver edge and are filled luminous material. You can see the tourbillon device is displayed through the window that is opened at 6 o’clock. I have compared the flying tourbillon device with that one on genuine watch, they are very close, almost the same. Look at the bridge that has two ends fixed on the dial, it is the same construction of tourbillon movement on genuine watch. The tourbillon device will start to work if you manually wind the watch.
I do not want to talk too much about the whole watch finish, it is just as good as other Audemars Piguet replica watches made by J12 factory. Please read the following specification to know the watch better.
Movement: Manual Winding Real Tourbillon
Case: 41mm*13mm, 316L Stainless Steel
Crystal: Sapphire with AR Coating
Dial: Blue Checkered Dial with Stick Makrers, Superlume on Markers and Hands
Bracelet: Solid 316L Stainless Steel with Deployant Clasp
Water Resistant: 50m
As the most outstanding and popular series of Audemars Piguet, Royal Oak has contributed so many excellent models to its fans. Royal Oak models always has very manly designs in its shape, color and functions, and there is no doubt for it to be so welcome among male purchase list. But, actually there are also many ladies love Royal Oak watches. In the replica market, replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch is also a hot item, there are so many models and this article I will like to review this full gold edition with you guys.
When I saw this full gold timepiece, it is so bright to me, and it looks so good on dark or bright skin. The size 41mm*9.8mm case is made of 316L stainless steel, with gold coating, and the surface is brass very well, I like the brass pattern very much, and it is even better on the gold. I can see there are screws on the bezel to fix the whole piece together, this has become the typical machinery beauty of Royal Oak watch. Looking into the dial, which is special blue check design, quiet special on a full gold case. The stick markers and three hands are all in gold, which is luminous. Functions are including hour, minute, second and date, adjusting from the crown. There is engraving “AP” on this hexagonal crown. On top the front glass is made of sapphire crystal, wearable and colorless material.
From the back sapphire crystal case, the movement machinery structure can be seem clearly. There is engraving “Royal Oak” and series No. on the back case. Inside there is a 1:1 replica 3120 movement from MIYOTA9015 movement, comparing to the previous replica edition which adopted 9015 movement without any replica work, this one is much closer to the genuine. We can see every replica detail through the clear back case. The bracelet is made of stainless steel and proceed with PVD gold as well. The Tang buckle is very elegant too, the “AP” logo looks as same as per original too. To conclude, this would be the best replica edition that I’ve seen, especially on the details and manufacture work. If you are looking for gold timepiece, this AP Royal Oak model will be nice to choose from.
Actually I do not want to introduce too many Audemars Piguet replica watches here because they are usually too expensive, although many readers have shown their interest in these 1:1 Audemars Piguet replicas, they finally turned to other watches due to a high cost of AP, which is usually sold over six hundreds of us dollars. I know you guys are not willing to pay such a high price on a replica watch, but whether you buy or not, they are worth the money. Especially this one, the Audemars Piguet Montauk Highway Limited Edition watch, I have posted a review about it at http://www.wristwatchspot.com/2015/07/23/photo-review-of-audemars-piguet-montauk-highway-replica-watch/, some blog readers who are interested in AP usually asked me about Montauk Highway, so today I will give a short review of this watch again, after these years, the Montauk Highway has been improved for several times, in the beginning, the watch is cloned by small factories, there are no 1:1 replica versions in the market, all of them are equipped with quartz movement, you can easily tell because the small second hand running at 6 ticking the time. Nowadays, all good quality replica Audemars Piguet watches are almost made by J12 factory, their movement is also changed from 7750 to clone 3126, like this one, the replica runs a smooth small second hand on subdial at 12, it has really been replicated the exactly same as genuine from appearance to inner side. I have told some of you guys that I will not sell cheap AP quartz watches any more, because all watches I want to provide here are best of the best.
I do not want to talk too much on its casing finishing and how well it is made, because, like AP Las Vegas Strip and Lebron James limied edition watch, Montauk Highway also has a superior craftmanship, these three watches are all made by J12 factory. The biggest feature that makes you instantly being recognized in the crowds is the dial color, white plus light blue, making the watch looks so fresh and clean. The light blue color on Tachymeter inner bezel, hour markers and hands is really attractive, if Audemars Piguet have ever made a basic model with such a dial color, which is not exclusive to Montauk Highway, I think it will be more popular. The replica is fitted with one pair of genuine alligator leather straps, which feature light blue hand stitching that just perfectly matches with the dial color. Finally, the replica Audemars Piguet Montauk Highway is equipped with a clone 3126 movement, which was just researched and developped by J12 in 2016, 3126 is currently the best AP chronograph movement, and this clone one is modified from a Shanghai 7750.
The watch has a nice dial lume at night, the lume is strong green that has the same tone as genuine watch. This is also the reason why I love Montauk Highway so much, other Audemars Piguet chrono watches do not have this feature. Now, do you want to wear such an amazing timepiece while riding a car like a blue ghost on the Montauk Highway?
I should say that watch designers always can get surprising designs from any inspiration. When we talk about American Dream, Las Vegas is a necessary place has to be mentioned, because it is considered as a place to make dreams come true. Inspired by this sleepless entertaining city, Audermars Piguet adopted the city essence and boldly turned it into a wrist watch. In fact, this AP 26186SN.OO.D101CR.01 watch is inspired by strip show and also name strip limited edition. Let’s have a look on this combination of timepiece and gambling.
The black case is made of stainless steel with DHL finishing, on the black dial, there are read markers and three sub-dials. I think black and red is a perfect color match, and black stands for the night and red represents those colorful events at Las Vegas’ nights. All the function on the dial you can see is working as good as the original, the reason I will explain later. The main dial presents the hour, minute and second chronograph, and the date is displayed at 3:00 position. The sub-dial operates its chronograph function except the small second subdial at 12. Then it is easy to tell the three buttons at the side are for adjusting those functions. The middle crown is for time and date adjustment, the button on top is for start/stop chronograph while the button below is for chronograph reset, they are all screw-in type. As I said this replica Audermars Piguet works as same as per original, because it is equipped with an upgraded clone movement, which is 3126, 1:1 replica of the original movement. And as this replica watch is from J12 factory, I don’t have any problem with its quality.
The bracelet is made of original crocodile, sewing with red color string, the color matching is so great. The clasp folded type, and it there is AP’s logo on it. On the strong back case is engraved with “LAS VEGAS STRIP” referring to it is a limited edition theme. If you like a watch which is a combination of stainless steel and leather, this is a not bad option.
The watch here I am going to discuss is the most expensive replica Audemars Piguet watch currently, some websites online are selling this replica at a sky high price, even much more expensive than AP Michael Schumacher.
The replica is manufactured by J12 factory, they put a lot of effort in replicating this model.
The theme of AP LeBron James replica is blue and grey color, 316L stainless steel case is plated with rose gold, the bezel is Cermet, which is made of ceramic and metallic material.
Cermet bezel is harder than general stainless steel. The case is a little different from other AP watches because its lugs are raised. The sunken case part is sand blasted, which gives a very refined touch feeling, the raised part is draw processed with polished edge. This type of case was only used on Audemars Piguet Schwarzenegger Limited Edition before, and the case design of AP LeBron James replica has more visual impact and layered feeling, which looks fresh.
Advanced rubber strap, there are air through holes on the band, very suitable to be worn in hot summer.
The watch will be shipped with one free pair of leather straps.
The case back also uses refined sand blasted workmanship, the screws look better.
Brand-new clone 3126 movement, with perfect polishing, it represents the highest imitation level.
The button is ceramic, it consists of spring, button and tube.
The chrono start button is embeded with 14 pieces of diamonds, to differentiate it from reset button.
The subdials have rose gold edge.
It is not a diver’s watch, the lume effect is just so so.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore 26470ST.OO.A801CR.01 by JF, the dial is very beautiful, it is in cream color. Sub dials and Tachymeter bezel are in chocolate tone, so sometimes we call it “Audemars Piguet Chocolate”.
The crystal uses sapphire, it has anti-reflective coating on inner face. Like other AP watches, the crystal is clear and gives a super good visual effect.
100% same as genuine, crown and chronograph buttons use ceramic, their edges are chamfer processed.
The magnifier above date window also features anti-reflective coating, which is very close to genuine.
The dial is perfect, I think it has beyond the replication of 15703. All hour markers have correct position and proportion. However, if you observe the date window carefully, its position is a little wrong and goes too right off center. This is limited to the movement, it can not be done to be 100% the same as genuine.
This replica Safari has been upgraded, because the date window of previous version has a deep brown background, which is different from genuine’s black. Now, this replica finally solved this defect.
Dial details. Numeral hour markers are 3D and filled with chocolate luminescence. However, the lume effect is not very obvious. Chronograph subdials have drawing-processed circles with brushed face. Safari and 15703 have checkered dial, but the grids on Safari’s dial does not have fiber patterns. Second-chronograph hand is plated with glaze.
Band uses embossed leather with crocodile patterns, it is thick and hard. There is raised crocodile coccyx on each strap. White hand stitching brings impact visual effect, and is also full of retro atmosphere.
The inside of the bank is litchi pattern embossed cow leather, very soft and comfortable.
The design of AP is really perfect, bent lugs could fit your wrist in a very comfortable way.
Brown leather band is just matching the chocolate subdials and tachymeter bezel.
J12 made a great effort on polishing their Audemars Piguet replica watches, like this one. The bezel of Safari is thicker than that of 15703.
Conclusion: AP Safari Chocolate replica is a great watch with refined craftmanship, it should belong to the high-end replica in our market. This replica has a better finish than 15703 and closer to genuine. The AP Safari replica I am talking here is equipped with an Asian 7750 movement, not the latest Clone 3126 movement made by J12 factory. However, J12 has upgraded all Audemars Piguet replica watches with 3126 movement, and the price is not very high.
The replica is made by J12 factory, like AP 15706, the BumbleBee watch also uses Forged Carbon case, ceramic bezel and case back, Titanium clasp and extreme workmanship, but it is more delicated than 15706. BumbleBee reflects the top watch-making technology in chronograph watches, from watch material to workmanship, J12 does better.
The crystal adopts sapphire with colorless AR Coating, it is very clear even under sun light, there will be a little reflection at a special angle. On the photo above, you almost can not see the existence of the crystal. Like AP Navy, the date magnifier has a layer of light green AR Coating to eliminate reflection, while genuine uses colorless AR Coating, but this tiny difference is hard to spot.
The strongest point of BumbleBee lies that its case back also adopts ceramic, cutting and drawing process all achieve to be perfect.
Forged carbon case has beautiful marble texture, the pattern on this J12 BumbleBee Forged Carbon case is also obvious, very pretty.
Embossed cow leather strap has yellow hand stitching on both sides, which is matching the yellow Tachymeter scales on inner bezel.
Ceramic bezel features sharp edges processed by chamfering polishing. On previous replicas made by J12, the bezel is stainless steel and their octagonal corners are not very sharp.
Chrono buttons and crown have rubber wrapped.
Buckle is Titanium made, DLC processed with delicated drawing process and engraving.
Deployant clasp is also Titanium, showing a Titanium color. The Titanium clasp is stronger and secure than stainless steel clasp, also looks more upscale.
Back cover has “Royal Oak Offshore” engravings, which are polished. The outer ring is drawing processed, which forms a sharp contrast with the brushed inner ring.
At this angle, the smooth surface of the case back fonts is like mirror.
The reflection disappears if changing another angle.
The inner ring has a black matte finished background, which is full of quality texture.
Audemars Piguet BumbleBee replica is really a good rugged sports watch, there are no defects besides its expensive price.
