The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replica Jumbo I’m wearing this week bears the reference 14802ST. A so called Jubilee model, which was presented in 1992 for the Royal Oak Jumbo’s 20th anniversary. In total 1000 pieces of this model have been made. It’s said that 300 of them were in yellow gold and 700 in […]
In addition to the above mentioned interesting details of the 14802 there is the advantage of a glass back, showing the immaculate 2121 calibre. The AP calibre 2121 movement is based on Jaeger-LeCoultre’s calibre 920. Interestingly JLC never used this movement in any of their own replica watches. On the other hand it’s the only movement that was used by all the ‘big three’ replica watch brands, Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin and Audemars Piguet. It features 36 jewels and a free-sprung Gyromax balance. Four ruby wheels support the rotor, which runs on a beryllium rail for stability.
The last thing I want to praise the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo for is its integrated bracelet. A piece of art and comfort. Almost all links from the casing to the clasp differ in width, giving it a very smooth and elegant appearance. Even the small interlink parts are getting smaller towards the end of the bracelet at the clasp. The one-sided clasp opens and closes adequately with a small AP embossed slide, never in need of much force.
Probably a slight disadvantage of every reference of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo is its price. Nowadays the price for a new 15202ST is quite a bit over € 20.000,=. And you have to be careful when buying a pre-owned one below € 20k, they’re not all of the same quality or complete with original box and certificates in that case. A perfect example of a 5402 can even fetch double that price.
So, the alien mothership is locked and loaded, the computers have all become self-aware, and the zombies are literally at your door. You’ve got your end of the world survival kit on your back, an array of weapons to hand, and just before you step out the door into imminent peril, you stop momentarily to […]
The concept of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept replica watches with 44mm diameters are not just a time watch. The principle of their designs are inspired from the stringed instruments. The “acoustic instrument” with specially designed voice template achieves the ultimate acoustic performance that acoustic string is tightly fixed on the bridge. The mechanical […]
The Audemars Piguet Mens Replica perpetual calendar is among the most highly regarded complications in horology – and with good reason. The way its all-mechanical brain knows the lengths of the months throughout the years and makes the date display jump from the 28, 29, 30 or 31st day to the 1st all by itself, […]
Audemars Piguet Mens Replica have developed a cool new calendar complication, but the replica watch it’s showcased in fails to deliver as a complete package. Audemars Piguet Millenary Replica 6I had two questions when I was first handed the new Audemars Piguet Millenary Quadriennium. Firstly, what is a Millenary Quadriennium? And secondly, does it have […]
Audemars Piguet Mens Rpelica introduces their Royal Oak Concept Laptimer Michael Schumacher.

A few days ago Audemars Piguet mens replica released the first images of its new Minute Repeater Royal Oak concept, due to be shown for the first time at SIHH 2015, and predictably the collective replica watch world lost its mind. Ok, that may be a bit of an exaggeration but there was definitely a […]
